Jaguar Land Rover will stop making petrol- and diesel-only vehicles in three years’ time. "Every new JLR model line will be electrified from 2020," says Ralf Speth, head of the Tata Motors-owned automaker. "We will introduce a portfolio of electrified products across our model range, embracing fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles."
The move follows Volvo’s recent announcement that it will electrify its vehicle ranges by 2019, with five new EVs in the pipeline between 2019 and 2021, while all other vehicles will go hybrid.
