Jaguar Land Rover Hits Millions In Manufacturing Milestone

This month marks a massive milestone for Jaguar Land Rover, having now produced over 1.5 million Ingenium engines at its UK manufacturing plant.

Jaguar Land Rover is an enormous global manufacturing operation, with vehicle factories in China, Brazil, India, Austria and Slovakia.

But it’s here in the UK where the design and engineering takes place, with two design and engineering sites, three vehicle manufacturing facilities and two powertrain assembly plants. And Jaguar Land Rover’s Ingenium engine hit the mammoth milestone at its £1billion engine manufacturing facility in Wolverhampton in the West Midlands.

The first example of the new engine family rolled off back in 2015. Initially, just one four-cylinder diesel engine was produced, with a four-cylinder petrol joining in 2016. Since then, a straight-six petrol has also been produced there, and a mild-hybrid straight-six diesel was announced a week ago.

Since the Jaguar I-Pace was launched, the Wolverhampton manufacturing facility has also been assembling electric drive units, and the entire site is being adapted to further facilitate electrification and propulsion methods as the industry evolves to modern development and demand, and a “growing electrification ecosystem” has already been established.

Located just 25 miles away in Hams Hall in Birmingham, Jaguar Land Rover already has a newly established battery assembly centre makes, which is producing packs for both pure-electric and plug-in hybrid models.

Jaguar Land Rover said it “will continue to develop Ingenium technology, continue to advance the electrification of its model line-up and establish a concept hydrogen fuel cell powertrain solution.”
