Jaguar Land Rover Preparing For Three New EVs

JLR doubles down on its EV future with three vehicles in the works.

  • These EVs will be built at the Castle Bromwich plant.
  • Along with the next-generation XJ sedan, there will be two new SUVs.
  • All will be built on the new Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) platform.

Last June, we learned that Jaguar Land Rover had plans to introduce three new electric vehicles and now, we have a better idea of what they will be. We reported on the fact that the next-generation Jaguar XJ will be fully electric. The other two EVs will be SUVs. Land Rover will introduce the “Road Rover” and Jaguar, the all-new J-Pace flagship SUV.

JLR is investing £1 billion in both Castle Bromwich and JLR’s factory in Solihull where future vehicles built on the new Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) platform will be assembled. The J-Pace and Road Rover should be in showrooms late next year. The next Jaguar XJ is expected in the spring of 2021.

This same platform is set to underpin the next generation of the top-line Range Rover, its offshoot, the Range Rover Sport as well as the next Land Rover Discovery. These products will, by most accounts, be delivered with some form of electrification such as plug-in hybrid technology.

There are many other programs currently under development at JLR. Autocar goes over a number of them. Most notably is whether or not the compact XE and midsize XF luxury sedans actually have a future.
