Jaguar Land Rover is also committed to strict electromobility for the future. A new test facility for electric vehicles has now been opened at the development center in Whitley, Coventry, at a cost of £250 million (approx. €288 million) and providing 350 new jobs. The 30,000-square-meter "Future Energy Lab" will develop electric drive units (EDU) for the next generation of all-electric models from Jaguar, Range Rover, Defender and Discovery. The British car company has announced nine new electric vehicles by 2030. The first will be the all-electric Range Rover.
The facility includes test benches, EDU production and test cells for electrical systems. In several climate chambers, extreme weather conditions can be simulated in temperature ranges between minus 40 and plus 50 degrees Celsius. (aum)
