Jaguar have broken a world record with their Vector V20E speedboat, as it reached speeds of near 89 mph on the waters of the Lake District.
Furthermore, this crowns the Vector V20E as the world's fastest electric speedboat stealing the title away from the previous record holder who held it for almost a decade. The Vector V20E was piloted by Peter dredge who is also the co-founder and technical director of Jaguar Vector.
The speedboat was designed and built by Jaguar Vector who worked together with Williams Advanced Engineering, who used drivetrain technology that is traditionally seen in an electric Formula-E car.
"After 12 months of hard work, this is a fantastic result for the team and our partners and a great first step in bringing the power and versatility of electrification to the marine industry. It is a great honour for the Vector team to follow in the footsteps of Donald Campbell CBE and to set a world record on the historic Coniston Water."
Jaguar Vector Racing CEO
Jaguar announced in October 2017 that they were set to be the exclusive title partner of Vector, with the team on track to break further national and international records over the coming months to showcase the worth of British engineering.
Williams Advanced Engineering is proud to have supported this new world record by Jaguar Vector Racing by using our award-winning knowledge of electrification to provide the boat’s electric power, motor and control systems. Our experience from powering the entire Formula E grid for the past four seasons of racing and our ongoing partnership with Jaguar in the ABB FIA Formula E championship provided the technical and operational platform required to achieve this fantastic result. Congratulations to all involved in this wonderful achievement.
