Tata Motors owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) is among three new research and development projects to have won the backing of the UK government′s £25-million grant, aimed at accelerating the development of innovative low-carbon vehicle technologies. The funding will be provided through the UK′s Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) enabling JLR and others to drive the development of low-carbon propulsion technologies and their supply chains. UK Business and Energy Secretary Greg Clark said at the annual Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) event in London, “The centre will help JLR adapt their existing engine production facilities to be capable of making electric vehicles.” He said that modern industrial strategies are being used to unlock economic opportunities. “Through our modern Industrial Strategy, we are harnessing our globally-renowned automotive heritage and engineering excellence to unlock the economic opportunities future vehicle technologies present to businesses across the country.” JLR′s project will bring together a consortium of academic and industry partners, with the aim of developing strategies and capabilities to produce electric drive units alongside internal combustion engines at its manufacturing facilities.
