EV vehicles to make up half of Jaguar's lineup by 2020

Jaguar Land Rover has recently revealed the I-Pace concept, the brand's first electric vehicle, together with the all-new Land Rover Discovery at this year's Los Angeles (LA) Auto Show.

These vehicles are proof that the company is now working towards a cleaner future, with ultra-clean diesel and petrol engines, BEVs, PHEVs, and MHEVs. By 2020, Jaguar says that they will be offering their customers the option of electrification on half of all its new cars.

“Design leadership, technical innovation and engineering excellence lie at the heart of this responsible business.We are shaping the future, developing our own approach to autonomy, connectivity and electrification to offer our customers more choice,” said Dr Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO.

Last year, Jaguar confirmed plans to double the size of its advanced engineering and design center in the UK, which serves as the brand's cornerstone. This expansion will house highly skilled product development engineers as well as support the company’s creation of high-tech, ultra-low emissions vehicles for customers around the world.
