New engines and other changes for 2018MY Jaguars

18 May 2017

When the Jaguar PRs said some of their cars at a regional driving day for UK media were factory-fresh, they were not kidding - several, with the new, in-house made Ingenium petrol engines, had come off the Castle Bromwich assembly line only a day before the event.


The week - some JLR engines go walkies

10 February 2017

The most-read story on just-auto this week is an embarrassing one for the automaker concerned - the theft of an unspecified number of engines from Tata Motors' Land Rover plant in Solihull, an event that was kept quiet about for several days until that pesky media got on the case. JLR did not value the engines but reports here in the UK suggested they could be worth in the region of GBP3m (US$3.7m) following their removal from the Damson site in Solihull near Birmingham at some point late at night between 31 January and 1 February. An articulated truck is believed to have entered the site twice, each time hooking up to trailers carrying the engines and then leaving again through the gate. Understandably, the automaker and the constabluary are tight-lipped but you'd have to think 'inside job' for the perps to know what to nab, and where from, and, reportedly, be able to show the right paperwork - twice - to get in and out. I would not want to be in charge of Solihull security right now.

7 February 2017

Q&A with Prodrive

8 October 2014

Power electronics is being brought into sharp focus as OEMs look to improve the efficiency of electric and hybrid cars.

Prodrive are exploring the use of silicon carbide based components which can operate at much higher temperatures and efficiencies.
