Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Automotive PLC is a leading luxury vehicle manufacturer with a distinctive reputation of being British and iconic. However the automotive company is now owned by the leading Indian industrial conglomerate, the Tata Group. The blue chip, India headquartered company is a leading player in the automotive sector via its Tata Motors subsidiary based in Mumbai. Tata acquired Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford Motor Company in 2008. JLR continues to conduct its operations from Coventry in the United Kingdom.
Jaguar Cars was founded as the Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922, and has since been responsible for the development of a number of vehicles that have achieved a global iconic status, to include the famed Jaguar full-sized luxury saloon cars.

The All-Electric Jaguar I-PACE SUV
The Jaguar I-PACE battery-electric vehicle (BEV) was unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. It is the first all-electric performance SUV from Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). Deliveries commenced in the second half of 2018. The model has won a number of awards in 2019 to include, the European Car of the Year, World Car of the Year, the Best Design and Best Green Car awards.
Though the Jaguar I-PACE was one of the first pure electric SUVs from a mainstream automotive manufacturer to challenge the dominance of Tesla electric cars, since 2018, many other car manufacturers have entered the zero-emission electric vehicle (EV) sector. Competition in the pure electric SUV segment is now fierce, with a number of EVs on offer at different price ranges.
It is a widely known fact, in that, the average distance of a trip in the UK is a mere 12 miles. An average vehicle in the UK will travel between 8k and 10k miles per annum i.e. less than 30 miles per day. The newest eco-friendly BEVs on the market will average between 200 to 300 zero-emission electric miles on a fully-charged EV battery!
The Jaguar compact electric SUV has a 90 kWh EV battery with a WLTP zero-emission electric range of 286 miles. Depending on driving style, weather conditions and the services used in the e-SUV, expect a real world range closer to 260 miles. However, that would be more than sufficient for most commutes, day and weekend trips. Depending on the cost of electricity, the cost per mile for driving on electric can be as low as 3 pence per mile. Bottom-line driving on electric miles is both cost efficient and eco-friendly!
The Jaguar BEV is practical and versatile without compromising on quality and comfort. The rear seats are comfortable for adults, with ample legroom and headroom and appropriate for most family requirements, to include, school runs, family outings, grocery shopping and a lot more! The interior quality of the pure electric SUV is high and driving is a pleasure.
