JLR planning to transform its Castle Bromwich facility into an EV manufacturing hub

News

British Luxury carmaker, Jaguar Land Rover, is planning to convert its historic Castle Bromwich plant into a specialised centre for manufacturing electric vehicles, if recent media reports are to be believed.

Info

Plans for an all-electric successor of the XJ which will be built at this facility, have already been confirmed by JLR last year. The next generation the the carmaker's flagship sedan is expected to be revealed later this year, with beginning of production only in 2021.

Apart from this model, the British carmaker is also developing two all electric Crossover SUV models, the J-Pace and the ‘Road Rover'. All the three vehicles would be based on JLR's MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture). This enables the carmaker to accommodate either all-electric, plug-in hybrid or internal combustion powertrains on a single platform.

The J-Pace is believed to be XJ's SUV counterpart. It is expected to sit over the Jaguar F-Pace in the company's vehicle line-up. The ‘Road Rover' will be a premium all-electric SUV which will don a more Crossover-like styling. Nevertheless, it will be a welcome addition to Land Rover's portfolio.

Jaguar Land Rover will be investing around £1 billion ($1.16 billion) in retooling its plants in Castle Bromwich and Solihull to build vehicles underpinned by the MLA platform. The Jaguar I-Pace, which is based on a unique platform, will continue to be built by Magna in Graz, Austria.
