Land Rover Hopes to Have Half of its Vehicles Be Hybrid, Plug-in Hybrid, or Battery-Electric By 2020
With so much new technology, growing opportunities and environmental upsides in the electric and hybrid vehicle realm these days, Jaguar Land Rover announced that it aims to have around half of the its vehicles be either hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or fully electric by 2020. This is exciting news for Land Rover enthusiasts and prospective Land Rover owners alike because it means the addition of revolutionary technology and only makes owning a new Land Rover even more enjoyable and convenient by allowing you the option to charge at home or on the go.
While there aren’t many details surrounding the recent announcement made by CEO Ralf Speth, it comes after the reveal of the I-Pace concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show, which proved to be a hit in and of itself. The I-Pace concept will start sales in 2018 and boasts an impressive single charge range of around 220 miles, and perhaps even more impressively will feature more than 400-horsepower. With technology like this already available at the fingertips of Jaguar Land Rover, the goal of making half of its vehicles hybrid, plug-in hybrid, or battery-electric by 2020 doesn’t seem like a stretch, it seems like an opportunity.
