Nick Rogers, JLR’s engineering director, said the partnership would be mutually beneficial at a time when the car industry was facing “the greatest technological shift in a generation”.
He added: “The pace of change and consumer interest in electrified vehicles is gathering real momentum and it’s essential we work across industry to advance the technologies required to deliver this exciting future.
“We’ve proven we can build world beating electric cars but now we need to scale the technology to support the next generation of Jaguar and Land Rover products.”

The all-electric Jaguar I-PACE has earned a historic treble at the 2019 World Car Awards, claiming the title of World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year, and World Green Car.
The Jaguar I-PACE powertrain provides 400PS and 696Nm of usable instant torque. With built-in all-wheel-drive traction, Jaguar I-PACE accelerates from 0-60mph in 4.5 seconds.
The 90kWh battery is designed for longevity and supports protracted periods of sustained maximum power. The battery’s position within the wheelbase provides the vehicle with a low centre of gravity, naturally benefiting vehicle dynamics.

Reducing the space between the car and the road improves aerodynamic performance and range. Jaguar I-PACE’s optional Electronic Air Suspension automatically lowers the car by 10mm when travelling at speeds in excess of 65mph over extended periods of time.
To maximise range, Jaguar I‑PACE uses an Enhanced Brake Regeneration system that recuperates almost all braking energy.
