Jaguar car brand to be all-electric by 2025

Jaguar Land Rover's Jaguar brand will be all-electric by 2025, the carmaker has said.

(BBC) The company will launch electric models of its entire Jaguar and Land Rover line-up by 2030, it added.


The firm said it would keep all three of its three British plants open as part of its new strategy.


But it has dropped plans to build an electric version of its XJ saloon at the Castle Bromwich plant, meaning the site will eventually stop making cars.


Chief executive Thierry Bolloré said the plant would focus instead on "non-production" activities in the long term, without giving details.


The company plans to spend about £2.5bn a year on new technology for its cars.


It will also invest in hydrogen fuel technology. Despite operating through combustion, hydrogen burns to produce only water as a by-product.


Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said the announcement was "a huge step for British car manufacturing".


Carmakers are under pressure to meet stringent carbon emission demands in Europe and China, as well as customer demand for high-performance electric cars with a luxury or performance feel.


The UK plans to ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2030.


Luxury car brand Bentley Motors, owned by Germany's Volkswagen, said in November its range will be fully electric by 2030, and last month General Motors said it aimed to have a zero tailpipe emission line-up by 2035.

The value of investments may fall as well as rise and the income from investments may fluctuate and is not guaranteed. Clients may not recover the amount invested.

Trading and investing can be a challenging and potentially profitable opportunity for investors. However, before deciding to participate in the market, you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. Most importantly, do not invest money you cannot afford to lose.


There is considerable exposure to risk in any investment transaction. Any transaction involving securities involves risks including, but not limited to, the potential for changing political and/or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency. Investments in speculation may also be susceptible to sharp rises and falls as the relevant market values fluctuate. The leveraged possibility of trading means that any market movement will have an equally proportional effect on your deposited funds. This may work against you as well as for you. Not only may investors get back less than they invested, but in the case of higher risk strategies, investors may lose the entirety of their investment. It is for this reason that when speculating in markets it is advisable to use only risk capital.
