Jaguar Land Rover recently revealed their plans to manufacture a range of new electrified vehicles (EVs) at its manufacturing plant located at Castle Bromwich in UK. The announcement is in line with the company’s commitment to offer electrified options for all new Jaguar and Land Rover models from 2020.
Dr Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer, Jaguar Land Rover, said, “The future of mobility is electric and, as a visionary British company, we are committed to making our next generation of zero-emission vehicles in the UK. We are co-locating our electric vehicle manufacturing, electronic drive units and battery assembly to create a powerhouse of electrification in the Midlands.”
The first electric car to be produced at the plant will be from Jaguar’s flagship luxury saloon, the XJ. The product has been choice of customers from backgrounds like business leaders, celebrities, politicians and royalty for over five decades and through eight generations of production. The XJ is designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK and has been exported to more than 120 countries. The news was confirmed to workers at Castle Bromwich as the production of the current XJ came to an end.
The new all-electric model will be created by the same expert team of designers and product development specialists responsible for delivering the world’s first premium electric SUV, and 2019 World Car of the Year, the Jaguar I-PACE.
In January the company confirmed plans to bring battery and Electric Drive Unit (EDU) assembly to the Midlands with investment in new and existing facilities. These investments have been anticipated in the company’s previously communicated capital investment plans.
