Ingenium Engine Technology

INGENIUM ENGINE TECHNOLOGY:  MODULAR, FLEXIBLE AND SCALEABLE DESIGN

Launched in 2014, Jaguar Land Rover’s family of clean, refined and efficient Ingenium engines has continued to evolve and grow to meet the growing needs of our customers worldwide. Designed, engineered and manufactured in-house, this range of state-of-the-art petrol and diesel units now offers a choice of four and six-cylinders, with three-cylinders to come this year.      

The Ingenium engine family is based around a modular, flexible and scaleable all-aluminium design with common design features: this benefits quality, cost efficiency and manufacturing flexibility. All petrol and diesel variants use the latest fuel injection, turbocharging and emissions control technologies to deliver outstanding performance with low CO2, NOx.

- Advanced boosting systems
- Direct fuel injection
- Variable cam timing (petrol only) and needle roller bearings
-  Efficient electronically-controlled oil and coolant pumps
- Light, stiff aluminium design
- Offset crankshaft for reduced friction

MEETING THE MOST DEMANDING REGULATIONS WORLDWIDE

All Jaguar Land Rover models already meet the standards required by the first phase of the Real Driving Emissions (RDE) testing procedure, which came into effect in September 2018. But proving that new diesel will play a vital role in meeting greenhouse gas targets, the latest Jaguar XF and new Range Rover Evoque were the first premium vehicles in their segments to be declared as available with RDE2-compliant diesel engines.

RDE2 is the latest and most stringent NOx emissions testing regulation, which all cars must abide by from January 2021. This achievement reflects Ingenium’s performance in real-world driving conditions – and Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to offering customers the widest choice while minimising impact on the environment.

DELIVERING AN ELECTRIFIED FUTURE

As the company delivers on its commitment to electrify all new models from 2020, mild-hybrid electric (MHEV) options are already available to order on the new Range Rover Evoque, Discovery Sport, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport.  The Range Rover and Range Rover Sport also offer plug-in hybrid (PHEV) systems and, later this year, PHEV technology will be available on the Range Rover Evoque and Discovery Sport.

Jaguar Land Rover was first to market with its premium electric SUV, the Jaguar I-PACE, which won an unprecedented hat-trick of awards in 2019: World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car.

SIX CYLINDER PETROL ENGINES WITH MILD-HYBRID ELECTRIC TECHNOLOGY

The Ingenium family now includes 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engines, launched in the Range Rover Sport. Exceptionally smooth and quiet, these engines use a combination of turbocharging with an electric supercharger to deliver immediate response and an extremely rapid build-up of torque, delivering an effortless surge in acceleration whenever the driver demands it.

These performance-boosting technologies are supplemented with a 48-volt mild-hybrid (MHEV) system, comprising a belt-driven integrated electric motor and compact underfloor lithium-ion battery, to enhance energy efficiency and further reduce fuel consumption and emissions.

THREE CYLINDERS WITH MILD AND PLUG-IN HYBRID ELECTRIC SYSTEMS

The next addition to the Ingenium family will be 1.5-three cylinder turbocharged petrol engines, delivering an ideal balance of power, torque and efficiency.  They will be available in the new Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Discovery Sport with a choice of hybrid systems: a 48-volt MHEV and, later this year, an even more capable plug-in hybrid (PHEV).

The PHEV pairs the three-cylinder engine with a compact electric motor integrated into the rear axle. As well as all-wheel drive, this electrified powertrain provides silent running, responsive performance and emissions-free city driving.

NEXT GENERATION ELECTRIC TECHNOLOGIES

As Jaguar Land Rover transforms its business to deliver an electrified future, from 2020 it will begin producing Electric Drive Units (EDUs), or electric motors, in-house at its Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton (UK).  In an agreement with BMW, announced in June 2019, both companies have joined forces to develop next generation EDUs to deliver the specific characteristics required for their respective range of vehicles, with the EDUs being manufactured by each partner in their own facilities.    

Jaguar Land Rover’s EDUs will be powered by batteries assembled at the company’s new Battery Assembly Centre near Birmingham (UK).  One of the largest of its kind in the UK, the facility will use new production techniques and technologies to manufacture battery packs for future Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.
