Jaguar Land Rover’s Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton has now produced more than 1.5 million Ingenium engines, providing a range of clean and electrified powertrains for all Jaguar and Land Rover models*.
Developed and manufactured in-house in Wolverhampton, Jaguar and Land Rover’s all-aluminium Ingenium engine designs are modular, flexible and scalable, with common core technologies.
The latest addition to the Ingenium range is the six-cylinder diesel engine, which offers enhanced performance, smoothness and efficiency, powering the new Range Rover and new Range Rover Sport.
The advanced in-line Ingenium diesel engine, featuring mild hybrid technology, joins the range of clean and efficient six-cylinder petrol and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines manufactured at Jaguar Land Rover’s facility in the West Midlands.
The evolving, efficient Ingenium family supports the company’s long-term commitment to reduce vehicle emissions and improve fuel economy across its vehicle range. This is part of its ‘Destination Zero’ mission and a commitment to reducing emissions and making environments cleaner through relentless innovation.
Jaguar Land Rover will continue to develop its Ingenium technology, continue to advance the electrification of its model line-up and establish a concept hydrogen fuel cell powertrain solution.
The Engine Manufacturing Centre also houses the assembly of Electric Drive Units (EDUs), offering full flexibility between new petrol and diesel engines and EDUs for those customers who want to make the switch from conventional to electrified vehicles.
The Wolverhampton site is complemented by a growing electrification ecosystem in the Midlands, with the innovative and technologically advanced Battery Assembly Centre at nearby Hams Hall assembling PHEV and BEV batteries.
Together, they will power the next generation of Jaguar and Land Rover electrified vehicles.
Ken Close, Jaguar Land Rover powertrain operations launch director, commented: “We are experiencing unprecedented demand for cleaner-running vehicles, so it’s more important than ever to deliver clean and efficient engines without compromising on the performance or all-terrain capabilities our customers have come to expect.”
The Engine Manufacturing Centre supplies engines to Jaguar Land Rover’s global vehicle operations, with a large majority of those powertrain units used in UK-based facilities including Solihull, home of the recently announced new Range Rover and new Range Rover Sport.
The latest six-cylinder diesel shares its manufacturing facilities with the six-cylinder petrol engine, which was successfully launched in 2019. These include machining of the key architecture, cylinder head, cylinder block and crankshaft, as well as the assembly and testing of the engine.
