Innovation Overview

As the world of digitalisation and electrification is changing the automotive industry, this means that production, IT and the Internet are becoming more and more intertwined. Entire business processes are now digitalised and the vehicles we are manufacturing are increasingly connected and electronically controlled.

At Jaguar Land Rover, we have an academy of lifelong learning to address the needs of an ever-evolving world. Today's curious young minds are tomorrow's engineers, designers and innovators. Our vehicles are world-class but it's our people who are at the heart of evereything we do, and what sets us apart.

We need to tackle the challenges of tomorrow, today. That means finding the right people whose skills and expertise expand across different areas.

Innovation Hub

Our vision for the future is:

Destination Zero — Zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion

By 2020, we aim to drastically reduce CO2 emissions by 25% and create intelligent, connected vehicles that adapt, assist and enhance the driving experience.

Future technologies mean autonomous driving. But instead of focusing on driverless cars, our research technologies aim to give the driver more, not less. Intelligent systems working in the background that are aware of situations as they develop. A smarter car is all-seeing and never distracted.

It is predicted that by 2020, over 20 billion connected things will be part of IoT (The Internet of Things). This means an exciting opportunity to invest in the necessary technologies and skills to ensure our future vehicles have a prominent role in IoT. But it also means new challenges such as greater demands for cyber security, digital skills, data protection and infrastructure, as the world becomes more connected.

Environmental innovation is part of our vision for a better future. The way we make our cars is as important as the way we design and engineer them. Significantly reducing our carbon emissions has been at the heart of our business strategy for the past decade. We have doubled the number of Powertrain Engineers and we continually invest in developing the necessary technology that will help us deliver a further 25% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2020.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Sustainability is fundamental to the reputation of our brands, our future profitability and, more importantly, the world in which we operate.

So unsurprisingly it is an integral part of our business plan. In fact, as a growing company, we consider it more important than ever that we reduce our impact on the environment and maximise the positive benefits our business can bring. Not because we feel we should. But because we want to.

The Jaguar Land Rover Way

Individually, Jaguar and Land Rover may be iconic brands – each with distinctive hallmarks that make them admired and desired throughout the world. Together, though, they form one incredible business to experience and grow with and one unique organisational approach. We call this approach the Jaguar Land Rover Way. It sums up how we do business, wherever we do business. And it is something we all live and breathe every day.

Our values

The approach is based on a set of core values. These values help us create and manufacture premium vehicles in a sustainable way. They involve us working together with integrity and understanding, and striving to achieve excellence in everything we do.

Our mission

We want to deliver more great products, faster than we have ever done before. We want to be leaders in the field of environmental innovation. We want to be sure our customers always come first. These are the three great passions we all share. Together, they form our mission.

Our people

One of the things that makes our business truly special is our employees. You will be surrounded by engaged and passionate people who genuinely care about the work they do and about the products they help to create. As we continue to expand our global footprint, it is this working culture that will give us the edge.

Our Awards

It is not just our products that are recognised for their excellence. It is all the people behind them as well. Here are some of the many corporate accolades we have received.
