We show that certain five-dimensional, (Formula presented) Yang-Mills-Einstein supergravity theories admit the gauging of the full R-symmetry group, (Formula presented) of the underlying (Formula presented) Poincaré superalgebra. This generalizes the previously studied Abelian gaugings of (Formula presented) and completes the construction of the most general vector and tensor field coupled five-dimensional, (Formula presented) supergravity theories with gauge interactions. The gauging of (Formula presented) turns out to be possible only in special cases, and leads to a new type of scalar potential. For a large class of these theories the potential does not have any critical points.
