Jaguar Land Rover recently participated at the Geneva Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland. While there, Jaguar Land Rover was proud to unveil three new vehicles: the Range Rover Velar, the Jaguar I-PACE Concept, and the ‘Project Hero’ Land Rover Discovery.
“Jaguar Land Rover is a technology company, creating world-class premium cars,” Dr. Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, said at the show. “Today, we have unveiled two revolutionary new vehicles – the Range Rover Velar and the Jaguar I-PACE Concept. Both are true to purpose: to create experiences our customers love for life.”
The Range Rover Velar is the fourth in the Range Rover line-up. It will be manufactured only in the United Kingdom. The Range Rover Velar will be made of lightweight aluminum intensive architecture and powered by the newest, environmentally friendly, Ingenium petrol and diesel engine.
The Jaguar I-PACE is Jaguar’s first electric performance SUV Concept. Jaguar Land Rover is committed to a cleaner future, and by 2020 they will offer electrification as an option on all of their new cars. The Jaguar I-PACE will be manufactured in Graz, Austria, at Magna Steyr’s plant.
Jaguar Land Rover’s new version of the Land Rover Discovery, ‘Project Hero,’ is built to support Jaguar Land Rover’s partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. Jaguar Land Rover is provided 120 vehicles to the Red Cross since 1954. Project Hero is an advanced communication vehicle and the first to have a drone mounted on the roof to help crews with search and rescue.
Jaguar Land Rover remains committed to developing tools for a brighter future. They continue to develop cleaner and more sustainable engines, and are looking forward to releasing completely electric vehicles in 2020. They also continue to serve relief efforts worldwide. Project Hero is just one example of what Jaguar Land Rover is doing.
