A Bright Future
Standing on the shoulders of giants, the view is phenomenal. To
us it's clear to see how we arrived at this enviable vantage point.
It's down to the tireless passion, drive and determination for
excellence that each and every person at Jaguar Land Rover
To ensure our vehicles are consistently second to none, we are investing in the future of our people and in turn our company's success. Here, the best get better every day. Just one of many examples of this commitment is our support for thousands of our Engineers to complete their Masters' degrees or progress towards Chartered status.
Have a look at how we'll be able to go further together.
Investment in R&D
Improving upon the
level of quality, performance and innovation synonymous with our
brands takes an annual investment of £1.5billion. Without this
investment in product creation and our future, we wouldn't be able
to realise the concepts from the far reaches of our Designers' and
Engineers' creativity. We wouldn't be trail blazing ahead of our
competitors, nor would we continue to be the ultimate destination
So far we've been able to improve lightweight vehicle architectures, develop advanced sensory controls, maximise engine efficiency, research electrifications, harness alternative fuels and further the application of technology in our vehicles.
With such an impressive track record of innovation, the future is an exciting and exhilarating prospect.
From original and unique sparks of inspiration right through to
the physical realisation of a vision, we're the only UK automotive
manufacturer that covers the entire spread of product
Each step requires a steady flow of fresh thinking, approaches and investment. Our advanced research department is the corner stone of this and is located on the Warwick University campus to support close academic collaboration. In fact, we work closely with a wide range of leading universities, research bodies and industrial partners, both within and outside of the UK.
It shocks some people to learn that 85% of a Jaguar is
recyclable and that our diesel engines are assembled using only
wind power. Many don't realise that thanks to our impressive CO2
offset programme we're offsetting 100% of the manufacturing
emissions of all Land Rovers built in the UK. This impressive
programme also offsets the emissions from the first 45,000 miles
they are on the road as well. But that's just the beginning. We've
made substantial multi-million pound investments specifically
focused on ways to reduce CO2 even further.
We are making great steps in the right direction, but we're always looking to do more. We're always open to fresh ideas.
Seeing into the Future
Our Virtual Reality Centre is the most sophisticated facility of its kind in the world. Using cutting-edge projection technology and an advanced motion tracking system, it provides an unparalleled virtual reality environment for simulating vehicle interiors and exteriors, so much so that it's capable of making bodywork appear solid or transparent. Not only does the system make the product and prototype development system quicker, but it is also greener because it reduces manufacturing processes and waste.
