JLR Recruiting Hundreds Of Engineers For EV Development

If you’re an engineer located in the West Midlands then these may be exciting times as Jaguar Land Rover has just announced 250 new jobs in the area.

The manufacturer will undertake the massive recruitment effort to support the development of its upcoming range of electric vehicles (EVs) at its facilities in Gaydon, Warwickshire and Whitley in Coventry. 

Of the 250 roles, 40 are concerned with battery engineering at the company’s recently unveiled £250m Future Energy Lab.

As reported on the JLR website, Thomas Mueller, the company’s executive director of product engineering, said: “The realisation of our Reimagine strategy is dependent on our investment in people and technology. 

“As we continue to invest in our facilities, we are now seeking very talented people to help us develop advancements in propulsion technology that will underpin our next-generation modern luxury vehicles.’’

In the past, some criticised Land Rover and Range Rover models due to their high emissions output. However, it’s clear to see that JLR is taking steps to significantly reduce its environmental impact, and these engineers will help propel the luxury carmaker’s efforts.

JLR plans to be all-electric by 2030 and this is just the latest development in the manufacturer’s plan to reduce its impact on the climate. 

Recently, the brand unveiled six upcoming EVs, including an all-electric version of the iconic Fifth-Generation Range Rover, an electric version of the Range Rover Sport, a Velar, an Evoque and two upcoming Jaguars.
