The Jaguar Land Rover is expected to announce plans for the construction of electric cars at Castle Bromwich, England, next week. Sunday Times reported.
The full electric version of the XJ sedan will be the first of three new vehicles to be made from a common platform, followed by SUVs, writing newspapers.
This move would be a rare light spot for the British automotive sector, which has been hit by falling jobs, announcements of plant closures, and falling sales over the past few months due to the decline in demand for diesel vehicles and the uncertainty of Brexit.
Jaguar Land Rover said during a day on June 5 that it will launch its modular MLA electric platform with a "large SUV and a large premium sedan." Electric cars using the MLA platform will have a range of 470 km (292 mile).
The first electric SUV JLR is expected to be the driving version of the new generation of Range Rover.
