    It will be built exclusively in the UK using Jaguar Land Rover's leading lightweight aluminium intensive architecture and powered by the latest ultra-clean UK-built Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. The new Velar is positioned between the Range Rover Evoque and Range Rover Sport.

    A cleaner future

    Jaguar Land Rover is working towards a cleaner future, with ultra-clean diesels and petrol engines, BEVS, PHEVs, MHEVS all in its strategic plans. By 2020 the company will offer customers the option of electrification on all its new cars.

    The Jaguar I-PACE, Jaguar's first electric performance SUV Concept, has been engineered without compromise to deliver a brilliant package, long-distance range, fast charging times and exhilarating performance.

    With plans in place to take Jaguar Land Rover's three vehicle manufacturing plants in the UK close to their operating capacity, the I-PACE will be manufactured at Magna Steyr's plant in Graz, Austria. With more than 100 years' experience, Magna Steyr has extensive contract manufacturing expertise working with many car manufacturers globally.

    Technology for good

    Project Hero is an advanced communication vehicle created to support Jaguar Land Rover's partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the world's largest humanitarian network. It is hoped that it will help the Red Cross save lives by speeding up response times to disasters.

    Since 1954, Land Rover has supported the Red Cross and supplied 120 vehicles to the IFRC for deployment in all corners of the globe. Project Hero is the first to be supplied with a roof-mounted drone which enhances the outstanding capability of the all-new Land Rover Discovery. A fully integrated landing system, featuring self-centring technology, enables the drone to land on Project Hero when the vehicle is in motion – a world first.
