1.5 million and counting: Jaguar Land Rover celebrates clean engine manufacturing milestone
Jaguar Land Rover has now produced over 1.5 million Ingenium engines, as the UK manufacturer celebrates its leading facility adding a new, advanced powertrain offering.
The Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, UK, develops and manufactures the ultra-efficient Ingenium powertrain family, providing a range of clean and electrified powertrains for all Jaguar and Land Rover models.
The advanced Ingenium family, which includes a range of refined and efficient diesel, petrol and electrified engines, are built to maximise performance whilst at the same time reducing the environmental impact and running costs for customers.
The latest addition to the line-up now includes a new six-cylinder diesel featuring mild hybrid technology, and offers the new Range Rover and new Range Rover Sport enhanced performance, smoothness and efficiency.
The evolving Ingenium family supports the company’s long-term commitment to reduce vehicle emissions and improve fuel economy across its vehicle range, and is a part of the manufacturer’s Destination Zero mission, which you can find out more about here.
Jaguar Land Rover will continue to develop its Ingenium technology, as well as advance the electrification of its model line-up and establish a concept hydrogen fuel cell powertrain solution. The Engine Manufacturing Centre also houses the assembly of Electric Drive Units (EDUs), offering full flexibility between new petrol and diesel engines and EDUs for those customers who want to make the switch from conventional to electrified vehicles.
The site is complemented by a growing electrification eco system in the Midlands, with the innovative and technologically advanced Battery Assembly Centre at nearby Hams Hall assembling PHEV and BEV batteries. Together, they will power the next generation of Jaguar and Land Rover electrified vehicles.
