Both represent major innovations in their segments, sharing a compelling combination of iconic British design and creative engineering.
Jaguar #landrover is a technology company, creating world-class premium cars. Today, we have unveiled two revolutionary new vehicles - the #rangerover #velar and the #jaguar #ipace Concept. #jaguarlandrover constantly pushes the boundaries and this spirit is embodied in both of these vehicles. China is of huge importance to us. It is our largest single market and over the past seven years our success and brand influence have been strong not just in terms of sales but in the facilities we have built here and the jobs we have created.DR RALF SPETHCEO
The launch of the new #rangerover #velar begins another new chapter in the #jaguarlandrover story. It is true to the company’s tradition of engineering integrity, establishing the trends of tomorrow in capability, quality and technology.
Velar will be built exclusively in the UK using #jaguar Land Rover’s leading lightweight aluminium intensive architecture and powered by the latest ultra-clean UK-built Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The new #velar is positioned between the #rangerover Evoque and #rangerover Sport.
The #jaguar #ipace, Jaguar’s first electric performance #suv Concept, has been engineered without compromise to deliver a brilliant package, long-distance range, fast charging times and exhilarating performance.
Jaguar Land Rover’s joint venture with Chery Automobile Company Ltd continues to grow with plans to increase the capacity of its plant in Changshu by 70,000 vehicles, build a new trim & final shop and expand existing facilities such as the body shop.
The #rangerover Evoque, #landrover #discovery and the #jaguar XF Long wheelbase are all built at its plant in Changshu. More than 100,000 vehicles have been manufactured since the plant opened in 2014 and it employs almost 5,000 people.
