2020: New Jaguar Land Rover Cars To Have Electric Option
The auto revolution is on.
From electric car to hybrid to driver-less cars, it is becoming obvious that the automobile will not remain as we have known it.
On Wednesday, it was Japanese auto giant, Nissan that unveiled a new electric car, to stamp its footing in the emerging industry.
But on Thursday, it became the turn of Britain’s biggest auto maker, Jaguar Land Rover, to announce its plans for the electric car industry.
Jaguar Land Rover new cars, it said, will be available in an electric or hybrid version from 2020, as it speeds up plans to electrify its model range.
Last year the company, owned by India’s Tata Motors said it would offer greener versions of half of its new line-up by 2020, but it has now ramped up its plans.
Demand for electric models continues to rise sharply.
This is even as some countries have announced plans to ban petrol vehicles.
In July, Britain said it would ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2040 to cut pollution.
Countries such as France, Spain, Mexico City and Greece have also announced similar plans.
