J aguar Land Rover has belonged to Land Rover since 2008 to the Indian Tata group and has since turned the product range upside down and launched new models such as the bestseller Range Rover Evoque. By the end of the next decade, the company plans to offer every new model with a partially or fully electric drive - depending on the market and legislation.
Jaguar Land Rover
The new MLA platform from Jaguar Land Rover enables flexible Use of drives. The platform can accommodate electrified gasoline and diesel engines as well as hybrid and electric drives.
JLR currently uses six different platforms for its 13 model series. Range Rover Evoque, Land Rover Discovery Sport and Jaguar E-Pace are based on the “D8” platform. 'D7a' use Range Rover Velar, Jaguar F-Pace, Jaguar XF and Jaguar XE. The large SUVs Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Land Rover Discovery are based on the 'D7u' platform. The Jaguar I-Pace is the only e-car to be based on the D7e, while the Jaguar F-Type and Jaguar XJ are based on the D6a and D2a.
From 2019/2020, Jaguar and Land Rover will be successive - Build models on the new Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA). This aluminum platform allows the implementation of conventional drivessuch as gasoline or diesel engines as mild hybrids as well as plug-in hybrids and pure electric drives. The plug-in versions are designed as all-wheel drive with an electric motor on the rear axle. They are produced in the Nitri plant in Slovakia and in the Solihull plant in the UK.
The Jaguar i-Pace will be launched in 2018. It should be able to spurt from zero to 100 km /h in 4.8 seconds and weighs 2.1 tons.
Just in time for the 50th In the year 2019 anniversary, Jaguar is showing the new XJ , which will be launched in 2020. However, the British are performing a rigorous U-turn with the new model. For the British, the XJ has always been not only the flagship but also an innovation. The X350 was the first aluminum model at the time, the X351 broke with the classic XJ design from 1968 in 2009. Now the XJ is again taking a new path. The top model with the electric drive could be the first to receive the new MLA platform, is larger and has a large tailgate instead of the classic trunk lid. The new Jaguar XJ should also be larger. With this volte, Jaguar positions it not only against Tesla, but also against the Mercedes EQS for 2020. It is still questionable whether the Jaguar XJ will not also get its own name as an electric version. Only recently did the British Jaguar J-Type protected. Accordingly, the model as XJ could also be equipped with conventional, but electrified, enginesTobe offered. The Jaguar J-Type comes with a 90 kWh lithium-ion battery, which should be good for a range of up to 480 kilometers.
Road Rover as an XJ twin
The Road Rover, which should come onto the market in 2021.
One year later the Land Rover sister model of the XJ /J-Type could be launched under the working title ' Road Rover '. However, the model has not yet been given the green light, even though the company has already registered the Road Rover name. Some rumor has it that the pure crossover electric model will be given a completely different name and will position itself between the Velar and Evoque. When it hits the market, the Road Rover will be Land Rover's first electric model based on the MLA platform. It is also unclear whether the Road Rover will come with hybrid drives.
New Land Rover Defender from 2020
In 2020, Land Rover will roll the new Defender out. The legendary off-roader is based on the new MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) platform and will roll off the production line in Nitra, Slovakia. With the new platform, the robust ladder frame and the rigid rear axle are no longer required. Instead, the Defender has independent suspension.
The new Land Rover Defender will also be offered again in several versions. So as the off-road successor to the Defender 90 and the longer Defender 110. There is also the 130 version, a soft-top version and the pick-up version for the longer version.
The six Defender engines
The new Land Rover Defender has six engines, three petrol and three diesel engines. The entry into the gasoline engine begins with the P300, a two-liter cylinder with 300 hp and 400 Nm torque. It should bring the Defender from zero to 100 km /h in 7.9 seconds. The P400 ranks above this. It is designed as a three-liter in-line six-cylinder for 400 hp and 400 Nm. As the P400e, it comes as a plug-in hybrid with a two-liter turbo gasoline engine. The system also offers 400 HP and a torque range between 400 and 645 Nm.

First look into the Defender cockpit.
On the diesel side, it starts with the D200, a Two-filter four-cylinder with 200 hp and 430 Nm. The D240 is the same diesel engine with 240 and 430 Nm. While the first diesel takes around ten seconds to accelerate to 100 km /h, the D240 runs to 100 km /h in 8.9 seconds. The top diesel is the three-liter in-line six-cylinder with 300 in the D300 with 700 Nm torque and a sprint time of 7.4 seconds planned.
Another SUV will be the super-luxury SUV Jaguar J-Pace in 2021, which is to poach in the area of the Porsche Cayenne. It is also based on the MLA platform and rolls off the assembly line in Solihull, UK. Compared to the Range Rover, the J-Pace should be a bit larger. Length and width are increasing, as is the space for passengers. The J-Pace competes against competitors such as the BMW X7 or the Mercedes GLS.
The new engines
The new generation of Ingenium engines will once again have a modular structure and be diesel and gasoline engine units. The Ingenium diesels come with SCR-Kat and should filter out around 98 percent of the NOx emissions. In addition to the 1.5-liter three-cylinder and the two-liter four-cylinder, in-line six-cylinders with three-liter displacement are the top engines. All units are coupled to electrically operated turbochargers. The potent V8 engines will no longer exist.
In addition, JLR is working together with BMW on electric drives. The fifth generation of BMW eDrive technology will serve as the basis for the joint electric drives. The new electric drives are developed in such a way that they correspond to the specific properties required in each case for the various model ranges. The electric drives are to be manufactured by each partner in their own production facilities.
