Jaguar to Unveil 8 EVs in India by 2030, Starting with Range Rover EV in 2025

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), owned by Tata Motors, is set to launch 8 electric vehicles (EVs) in India by 2030. A senior executive of the company has provided this information. Currently, the company sells the Jaguar I-PACE EV in the country. JLR’s Chief Commercial Officer, Leonard Hornik, stated, “The company will start taking orders for the Range Rover EV from the coming year, with deliveries commencing in 2025. We plan to launch a minimum of 8 battery EVs in India by the end of this decade.”

India is Heading in the Right Direction for Electric Mobility

Hornik noted that India is on the right path when it comes to the transformation of electric mobility. He mentioned that subsidizing charging infrastructure and having a good product (EV) available are essential to encourage the adoption of electric cars in the early stages.

Subsidies are Crucial to Encourage EV Adoption

When asked if subsidies could also help in selling EVs in India, Hornik responded, “I think it’s imperative that subsidies are a part of the change. Encouraging the adoption of EVs requires subsidies. Governments worldwide are making efforts to incentivize EVs with subsidies.”

Being a Part of Tata Group is a Positive Factor for JLR

Leonard Hornik also revealed JLR’s plans for expanding the brand’s presence in India. He said, “The company aims to expand the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, and Defender brands. We have planned for this by creating a dealer network. In the current fiscal year, we have seen a growth of 100% in the company’s sales. We expect a similar growth in sales in the upcoming quarter. Being a part of the Tata Group is a positive factor for JLR because the trust of the common people is growing within the Tata Group.”

Positive Indicators for the Auto Industry

Hornik mentioned, “India’s high GDP growth rate, the youth population, and rapid development in road infrastructure all indicate that the auto industry’s future looks bright.”
