Half Of All New Jaguars To Be Electric By 2020

After showcasing its first all-electric concept – the I-Pace – ahead of the Los Angeles Motor Show, Tata Motors-owned British carmaker, Jaguar revealed on Wednesday that half of all new Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles will be available as electrics at the foot of the current decade.

“We are shaping the future, developing our own approach to autonomy, connectivity and electrification to offer our customers more choice,” chief executive Ralf Speth told Reuters.

Last year, Jaguar Land Rover had said that it would double the size of its powertrain engineering centre in central England to support the development of more low-emission vehicles, the fastest growing market for new cars in Britain.

Apart from all-electric powertrains, the company is also intent on building cleaner petrol and diesel engines for the green cause. In fact, plug-in hybrids are also a part of the company’s plans, going forward.

The first car from the Indo-Brit carmaker in this bid will be the I-Pace, as mentioned earlier. Powered by two electric motors, the SUV is expected to hit the roads by 2018. The motors will draw current from a Jaguar-developed liquid-cooled battery system, enough for a range of 220 miles (354km, according to an American range measuring authority).

The automaker had recently made a couple of significant additions to its Indian portfolio. While the Jaguar XF was launched in an all-new avatar in September, it was soon followed by the first SUV in Jaguar’s stables, the F-Pace.
