Jaguar Land Rover to Open Three Engineering Hubs in Europe

Luxury carmaker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced plans to open three new engineering hubs in Europe to develop autonomous vehicle technologies in partnership with Nvidia, a Silicon Valley artificial intelligence company. These new hubs will be located in Munich, Bologna, and Madrid, and will focus on developing self-driving systems for JLR's next generation of luxury vehicles.

100 New Engineering Jobs to be Created

The new hubs are expected to create almost 100 new engineering jobs, with a focus on developing driver assistance systems and artificial intelligence for self-driving cars. The locations were chosen due to the availability of digital engineering specialists in those regions.

Partnership with Nvidia to Develop Computer Brains for Luxury Vehicles

JLR and Nvidia announced a multiyear agreement last year to jointly develop the computer brains and nervous systems for Jaguars and Land Rovers launching in 2025 and beyond. The partnership gives JLR a well-funded ally in the digital technology arms race with its luxury vehicle rivals, including Tesla.

Existing Global Tech Hubs Across US, China, and Europe

JLR already has six global tech hubs located across the United States, China, and Europe, with the addition of the three new engineering hubs in Europe. The company is looking to expand its capabilities in digital technology to stay competitive in the luxury vehicle market.

Jaguar Is Eletrifying 

Jaguar has been actively working to electrify its fleet in recent years, and currently offers two electric vehicles - the Jaguar I-PACE and the Jaguar XJ. The I-PACE is a fully electric SUV that was launched in 2018, and has been well-received for its impressive range and performance. It has a range of up to 292 miles on a single charge, and can accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 4.5 seconds.

The Jaguar XJ, which is set to be launched in 2024, will be an all-electric version of the company's flagship luxury saloon. It is expected to have a range of up to 292 miles and feature advanced technologies such as over-the-air software updates and wireless charging.

Jaguar has also announced plans to transition to a fully electric vehicle lineup by 2025, and is investing heavily in electric vehicle technology to make this possible. The company has said that it will offer electric options for all of its models by 2030, and is expected to launch several more electric vehicles in the coming years.

Overall, Jaguar's electric vehicles offer impressive range, performance, and cutting-edge technology, and the company's commitment to transitioning to a fully electric lineup demonstrates its commitment to sustainable mobility.
