Jaguar Land Rover looking to make electric cars in the UK

Jaguar Land Rover looking to make electric cars in the UK

Jaguar recently showed off its first fully electric vehicle in the form of the I-Pace at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The British carmaker isn’t stopping here though because Jaguar Land Rover has plenty lined up in the electric motoring space. JLR, in fact, has revealed that it plans to build electric cars in the UK in order to lift up British automotive sector following the Brexit. 

Coming back to the I-Pace, JLR has revealed that the production version of the I-Pace will be produced by Magna Steyr in Austria. That said, the company’s CEO Ralf Speth has hinted at further production being undertaken in the UK. JLR currently is running three car plants in central and northern England..

Although Jaguar Land Rover is yet to reveal the timeline of its electric car production, the move will certainly pay dividend for the British automotive sector. What’s more, the brand has announced its plans of making electric versions of half its car range by 2020.

Electric cars are still at a nascent stage in India and there’s very little in terms of in-house development of EVs. Having said that, electric cars are now getting more recognition thanks to experiential efforts from manufacturers and the government. The government’s FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India) initiative aims to make EVs cheaper and more suitable to the local infrastructure capabilities.
