British automotive giant Jaguar Land Rover has revealed its plans of making electric cars in the UK. The move will allow JLR to boost the British automotive sector following the Brexit.

 

Jaguar recently took the covers of its first fully electric vehicle in the form of the I-Pace, production version of which will be made by Magna Steyr in Austria. That said, JLR’s CEO Ralf Speth has suggested that further production could happen in the UK. Although Jaguar Land Rover is yet to reveal the timeline of its electric car production, the move will certainly pay dividend for the British automotive sector. Jaguar has even announced its plans of making electric versions of half its car range by 2020.

Electric cars are still at a nascent stage in India and there’s very little in terms of in-house development of EVs. Having said that, electric cars are now getting more recognition thanks to experiential efforts from manufacturers and the government. The government’s FAME (Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Hybrid and Electric vehicles in India) initiative aims to make EVs cheaper and more suitable to the local infrastructure capabilities.
