Jaguar Land Rover cars to be available in electric or hybrid version from 2020

(qlmbusinessnews.com via uk.reuters.com — Thur, 7 Sept, 2017) London, UK —

LONDON (Reuters) – All new Jaguar Land Rover cars will be available in an electric or hybrid version from 2020, Britain’s biggest carmaker said on Thursday, as it speeds up plans to electrify its model range.

Last year, the company, owned by India’s Tata Motors, said it would offer greener versions of half of its new line-up by 2020, but it has now ramped up its plans.

Demand for electric models continues to rise sharply and in July Britain said it would ban the sale of new petrol and diesel cars from 2040 to cut pollution, replicating plans by France and cities such as Madrid, Mexico City and Athens.
