Ingenium Hero

Ingenium Engine Technology


Today, our state-of-the-art diesel and petrol Ingenium engines deliver world-class efficiency, performance and reduced emissions. These clean technologies offer enhanced fuel economy that benefits both customers and the environment.  

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, and meet the most demanding regulations worldwide.

  • 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

A range of our vehicles, including the new Range Rover Evoque, the Land Rover Discovery Sport and refreshed Jaguar XE have all achieved compliance with stringent Real Driving Emissions Step 2 (RDE2) standards NOx emissions tests well in advance of the 2020 introduction of RDE2 for all models. We are on track to deliver a 45 per cent reduction in European fleet average tailpipe CO2 emissions by 2020 and proud to have achieved a 36 per cent reduction in our European fleet average tailpipe CO2 emissions in just 10 years. 

Designed, engineered and manufactured in-house, we offer a choice of three-, four-, and six-cylinder engines and electrification in the form of mild and plug-in hybrid technology systems. We are on track to fulfil our commitment to offer electrified options for all new vehicle models from 2020.  

Our first all-electric Jaguar I-PACE – winner of an unprecedented treble of awards in 2019, World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year and World Green Car – is the world’s first premium all-electric SUV, designed and engineered in the UK.  

Through our long-term commitment to Research and development, we have hundreds of patents pending for electrification technologies and gained extensive knowledge in materials and composites and skills in battery system integration.
