To meet our Destination Zero mission of autonomous, connected, electrified and shared future mobility, we are committed to a strategy of electrification across our model ranges. Today, our customers can choose degrees of electrification, across both Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.
Our latest Land Rover vehicle families, Range Rover, Discovery and Defender, are hybrid by design, featuring advanced Mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (MHEV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) options.
In 2018, we were the first manufacturer to develop and introduce a premium, all-electric SUV, the multi-award-winning Jaguar I-PACE. Employing a 90kWh battery pack with 432 Lithium Ion cells and twin electric drive units, our engineers created in I-PACE a pure electric car worthy of the Jaguar badge, delivering 400PS and 696Nm torque.
Jaguar I-PACE: Our Awards
To continue on our journey towards Destination Zero, we are growing our electric expertise, pushing the boundaries through relentless product innovation and manufacturing technologies worldwide.
And we have already announced that our next Jaguar XJ will be a ground-breaking, fully electric sports saloon.
To this end, we are creating an electric vehicle manufacturing ecosystem in the heart of the UK:
- We are reinventing our Castle Bromwich facility as an electric vehicle centre of excellence, where the new generation of electric vehicles will be built – including the next Jaguar XJ.
- A new Battery Assembly Centre (BAC) at Hams Hall in Birmingham and Global Electric Drive Unit production at our Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton will power the next generation of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.
We also see the power of great partnerships in achieving our mission, and have entered a strategic collaboration with BMW Group to advance our electric vehicle research and purchasing power. Jaguar Land Rover’s electric journey is accelerating fast, but we continue to offer the latest diesel and petrol engines, giving our customers even more choice.
