Jaguar Land Rover Racing Ahead With Electrification at Frankfurt Motor Show

Jaguar Land Rover Racing Ahead With Electrification at Frankfurt Motor Show”

But then again, they do have Land Rover as one of their focuses - and that only means better off-road chops.

Land Rover's new Discovery SVX, tuned by JLR Special Vehicle Operations, is the most powerful Discovery you can buy with 525 hp out of the familiar JLR supercharged V8, but it's not been designed with tarmac in mind - it looks and should perform like a really hardcore off-roader as it features all manner of trick bits. And the SVX shows off all of LR's traditional traits - coming with increased ground clearance and long-travel dampers, for way better approach, departure, and breakover angles. The show vehicle has new front and rear bumpers with bigger skid plates, a rear electric winch and LED light pods mounted between the roof rails.

Furthermore, visual differentiation includes an exclusive satin Tectonic Grey paint finish, a unique colour and material combination of Lunar and Light Oyster with Rush Orange accents inside, and X logo perforations on the SVX branded seats.

Jaguar's first electric model, the I-Pace SUV, will go on sale next year, while a Range Rover update, due later this year, is expected to contain new hybrid variants. The advanced engine uses Continuously Variable Valve Lift (CVVL) technology to optimise efficiency and a twin-scroll turbocharger with ceramic bearings for smooth responses and reduced friction. The state-of-the-art high-resolution panel provides contemporary graphics that create the impression of 3D surfaces with exceptional clarity and allow the driver to personalise the visual display.

Every Discovery will get a 10-inch display with the Touch Pro infotainment system and SE models and above will benefit from a faster 4G wi-fi connection that up to eight devices can connect to. Jaguar, however, isn't being too explicit about either pricing or availability. Meanwhile, a new Cabin Air Ionisation system improves interior air quality. The Discovery SVX will be the first Land Rover assembled by hand at the SVO Technical Centre when production begins in 2018. Customers can register their interest now, but prices aren't set to be announced until next year.
