MEET STEFAN FUCHSS, CHIEF ENGINEER ELECTRIC DRIVE UNITS

Stefan leads the development of all JLR Electric Drive Units (EDU). This consists of machines, inverters and transmission systems. Altogether, he heads up a global team of almost 300 engineers in the UK, China and India delivering high-tech and transformative solutions.

Graduating in 1997 from the University of Kaiserslautern as a German Diplom-Ingenieur in Mechanical Engineering before taking his first position at Daimler AG. In 20 years at Mercedes-Benz, he worked in their Vehicle and Powertrain Engineering departments. After a short period at Chrysler-Jeep, he returned to Mercedes to lead the 4Matic AWD, 9Gtronic Automatic and passenger car hybridization portfolios.

In 2017, Stefan joined JLR to lead the transmission, driveline and EDU team – successfully introducing the Jaguar I-Pace Driveline, the Defender AWD system and the Range Rover Evoque PHEV. His vision of a fully electric range of vehicles is clear, and he oversees all electric drive units at JLR.

“I feel privileged to lead one of the most capable teams in the car industry to compete for the best electric driveline in the world. The strong commitment and dedication at JLR to transforming our company and setting benchmarks is a fantastic inspiration. I am looking forward to the rollout of our ground-breaking technology, made in our factories.”
Stefan Fuchss, Chief Engineer Electric Drive Units

DEVELOPING YOUR SKILLS

We have launched the JLR Learning Academy; a home for lifelong learning. We are creating engaging, relevant and personalised learning content and experiences that can impact personal, team and organisational performance.

It is essential people are curious about things and take their own development seriously in order to be better equipped to move into different roles, projects or careers. The value of our people lies in their continued development and in our commitment to invest in their learning and growth in order that they can optimise their performance, whatever their role.

An essential ingredient in our success is the creation of an environment where managers actively share what they are learning and encourage others to grow and stretch and where they coach and mentor others to maximise their team's performance and continued growth. Through the JLR Learning Academy we are seeking to enable people to learn, create, grow and to support others to do the same; daring each other to embrace the changes and the challenges we face and ensure our future is bright.

WOMEN IN ENGINEERING

The Women in Engineering and Allies network champions gender inclusivity in engineering functions and continues to grow rapidly. Engaging female engineers to flourish and recognise their work and contribution to automotive development. The network has chapters across various sites and is fully aligned with the JLR employee-led diversity championing networks.

Led by a talented and dedicated committee of volunteers, the network has an active schedule of lunches, annual conferences, skills workshops and guest speakers. It is also active in supporting activities in schools, universities, careers fairs and internal JLR campaigns.
