Jaguar Land Rover is proposing to launch its electrified products in India. In line with Jaguar Land Rover's global commitment to introduce electrified options on its entire product portfolio by 2020, Jaguar Land Rover India proposes to offer multiple products, ranging from hybrid vehicles to battery electric vehicles (BEV) over the next few years, starting from 2019.

Towards the end of 2019 Jaguar Land Rover will introduce its first hybrid vehicles from Land Rover. In second half of 2020, Jaguar Land Rover India plans to launch its first battery electric vehicle, the Jaguar I-Pace.

Rohit Suri, president and managing director, Jaguar Land Rover India (JLRIL) said: "Jaguar Land Rover's focus is to commit itself to a more sustainable future and our engineers have developed just the right products to lead us on this path. The introduction of electrified vehicles in Jaguar Land Rover India's portfolio is in line with the government's thrust towards electric vehicles. The company is encouraged by the introduction of Fame-II by the Government of India and it focus on expansion of the charging infrastructure in the country. This is bound to help with faster adoption of all kinds of electric vehicles in due course."
