The UK-based manufacturer has announced they will stop production on dependent combustion-engined vehicles by 2020.
Land Rover has become one of the most British-recognised brands in the world, the car manufacturer has sold more than 583,000 cars across 136 countries. Passing Nissan in 2016 becoming the UK’s number 1 car manufacturer, with China being Jaguar Land Rover’s biggest market.
Jaguar Land Rover has promised from 2020 models will either be fully electric or hybrid. The manufacturer won’t be fully stopping the production of the combustion engine completely, with hybrid options still available to customers.
Jaguar Land Rover is the second car manufacturer this week claiming to stop production of only dependent combustion engine vehicles. Volvo claims to stop production by 2019 which will see Volvo only manufacturing electric or hybrid cars.
We will no doubt see more car manufacturers releasing dates for the stop in production of fully dependent combustion engines. The Government announced it will ban the sale of all new petrol and diesel-powered cars by 2040. Making car manufacturers look for alternative forms of power via hybrid or electrically powered motors.
