Iconic British car company Jaguar Land Rover has announced that it will produce fully electric car models by 2025 and focus on zero carbon emissions by 2039.
British automaker Jaguar Land Rover will switch to electric vehicles in the coming years. The company announced Monday that Jaguar will be an all-electric luxury brand by 2025, and 60% of Land Rovers sold will be equipped with electric powertrains by 2030.
The company promises that there will be six electric Land Rover SUV models within the next five years, and the first will be introduced in 2024. By 2030, all Land Rover models will be available in two versions: petrol and electric. All Jaguar models will be fully electric. Diesel models are also planned to be phased out by 2026. The company plans to focus on the development and deployment of hydrogen fuel cells and zero carbon dioxide emissions by 2039.
Bentley also announced the switch to electricity
Jaguar Land Rover has been owned by India’s largest automaker Tata Motors since 2008. Tata Motors’ shares rose 3% on the Bombay Stock Exchange after the British automaker announced that it would join the Tata Group’s new strategy, called Reimagine. Jaguar Land Rover CEO Thierry Bollore said on Monday that close collaboration with the parent company will make it much easier to implement the new concept of the two car brands.
Bentley Motors, another British automaker that has been part of German auto giant Volkswagen since 1998, also announced plans to switch to fully electric vehicle production in November last year. In the next six years, Bentley will switch to production of fully hybrid cars, and by 2030, it will only produce electric vehicles.
