In addition to the two existing championships for drivers and teams, Formula E will also honour the manufacturer with the most points with an official world championship title for the first time next season (2024-25). This is reported by the colleagues of The Race. Preparations for a Constructors' World Championship title are already underway behind the scenes, but official ratification by the FIA World Motor Sport Council is still pending.

Jaguar team boss James Barclay is regarded as the driving force behind the project. "I think I’ve probably, fair to say, been the vocal one on that," says the South African. With four race wins each for Jaguar works driver Mitch Evans and the then Envision driver Nick Cassidy, Jaguar drives won eight of the 16 races in the 2023 season. Nevertheless, there was no title for the Brits last year, as Andretti driver Jake Dennis became the driver and Envision Racing Team World Champion.

"If you look at the investment that goes into this championship, the biggest investment comes from the manufacturers," continues Barclay. "We’re developing the cars, we’re developing the powertrains, and when our powertrains and our cars goes onto success we should be able to celebrate that." Jaguar is not alone in this opinion: Nissan as well as Porsche and its customer team Andretti support the endeavour. An official announcement of the Constructors' World Championship is expected in the summer.
