Developing Technology For Good
Both Jaguar and Land Rover have long histories of innovation. At the heart of the Jaguar Land Rover business is Destination Zero, our vision for a future world of zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion. We are channelling our talent, ideas and innovation to use technology to drive improvements and tackle some of the key challenges facing society – from pollution and climate change to the revolution in mobility.
Jaguar Land Rover has installed 166 smart charging outlets for electric vehicles at its Gaydon engineering centre. The outlets are for use by employees to encourage uptake of electric vehicles.
The 7kW AC smart charging stations, supplied by NewMotion (a Shell company), can add 22 miles of range to an all –electric Jaguar I-PACE every hour and 176 miles in total during an eight-hour day. The stations are cloud-connected and integrated with the NewMotion public charging network, so employees can charge at stations across Europe using a single card. Users can also monitor and track charging throughout the day with a smartphone app.
