Land Rover will add six pure electric variants in the next five years and future Jaguar models would be built exclusively on a pure electric architecture, the British car giant said, adding that the first all-electric variant of Land Rover will debut in 2024.
By 2030, it is anticipated that 100% of Jaguar cars, and 60% of Land Rovers, will be equipped with zero-tailpipe powertrains, JLR said.
This feeds into its plans to become a net-zero-carbon business across its supply chain, products, and operations by 2039, it said.
The Tata Motors-owned group's strategy comes as car groups worldwide accelerate moves towards fleets powered by electric and other green technologies.
Last month, General Motors said it aimed for all new cars, SUVs, and light pickup trucks to have zero-tailpipe emissions by 2035, a dramatic shift away from gasoline and diesel engines by the largest US automaker.
JLR is also preparing for the expected adoption of clean fuel-cell power, it said, and expected its prototypes to arrive on UK roads within the next 12 months.
To achieve this, it would work alongside other companies owned by Tata and would spend around £2.5 billion ($3.5 billion) on the project each year, including investments in electrification technologies, connected services, and data-centric technologies, it said.
