    Jaguar Land Rover and BMW announced on Wednesday that they will form an alliance to build the unique parts, beyond the battery, that make up an electric vehicle.

Jaguar Land Rover has also said it will offer both all-electric and plug-in hybrid versions of every model it sells by 2025 (along with gas versions.) BMW has also teamed up with rival Mercedes-Benz to...

    2019 Jaguar I-Pace electric car range: Why the short circuit?

    It’s not unusual for fuel gauges on gasoline cars to be inaccurate. Often they can hug "Full" so long you might suspect it’s malfunctioning—only to then swing rapidly toward the halfway mark and below. Usually these idiosyncrasies are no big deal. When the low-fuel light and chime...

    The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace, a city boy, and range anxiety

    Electric vehicles aren’t made for me. It’s not that I’m not for them. My circumstances just don’t fit with the realities of charging. I live in Chicago, in a 100-year-old apartment building converted to condominiums 17 years ago. I have a spot in a parking lot behind the...

    Finalist for Green Car Reports Best Car To Buy 2019: Jaguar I-Pace

    The Jaguar I-Pace is a front-runner—the first fully electric, longer-range vehicle from a long-established luxury brand. But it’s not a “Tesla-fighter” as the I-Pace has often been called. More accurately it exists not to conquest Tesla drivers but to keep...

And a new report from the journal Nature shows global warming may already be much worse than expected. All this and more on Green Car Reports. As solar panels get smaller, cheaper, and more powerful, Korean automakers Hyundai and Kia announced a plan to put them directly on cars to give electric cars more range and gas cars better fuel-efficiency. The plan will encompass hybrids, electric cars, and...

    2019 Jaguar I-Pace real-world review: 3 days with the sexy electric crossover

    To the world’s surprise, the first all-electric luxury utility vehicle to follow the Tesla Model X into production did not come from the German makes of Audi, BMW, or Mercedes-Benz. Instead, it arrived from that trio’s smaller, scrappier British rival, Jaguar Land Rover. The 2019 Jaguar...

    JLR to pump money into electric cars instead of diesel

    Jaguar-Land Rover said in a presentation to investors Monday that weak demand for diesel-fueled cars has prompted it to increase its investment in electric cars by 25 percent—to $18 billion—by 2025. Where the company previously said it would offer an electrified version of each new...

  • Prince Harry and new wife Meghan Markle in the Jaguar E-Type Zero concept

    Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. All were rolled into one gorgeous bauble leaving Saturday's royal wedding. The light-blue metallic Jaguar E-Type convertible waiting to whisk Prince Harry and his bride, Meghan Markle, from their public reception at Windsor Castle to a private celebration hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House wasn't just any classic Jaguar, it was fitted with an electric powertrain. This roadster was a Concept Zero, a classic 1968 E-Type convertible lent a new lease on life by Jaguar's own Classic Works restoration shop in England. Classic...

    Audi, BMW, Mercedes large electric luxury sedans to aim above Tesla Model S?

    The Tesla Model S occupies an interesting position among "luxury" sedans and hatchbacks. It's far from the best-equipped vehicle compared to mid-size and full-size competitors from Audi, BMW, Jaguar, and Mercedes-Benz, but that doesn't seem to matter to its 200,000 or so buyers to date. The good...

    Electric I-Pace may lead Jaguar design, style into the future

    In January 2007, Jaguar dropped a bombshell, in the form of the C-XF concept sedan it unveiled at that year's Detroit auto show. The sleek, fastback shape, simple rectangular grille with recessed mesh, and swept-back cat's-eye headlights yanked Jaguar design out of its fusty retro-traditional...

  • Drag race between 2019 Jaguar I-Pace and Tesla Model X 75D electric cars  [video: Jaguar]

    The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace SUV that debuted Thursday beat all the German luxury makes to the punch in launching a viable competitor to the looks and capabilities of electric cars offered by Tesla. The 14-year-old Silicon Valley startup has attracted huge attention for the stunning acceleration of its cars, particularly the "P" performance versions. Now Jaguar has waded right into that fray. The company released a video showing the Jaguar I-Pace competing at a drag strip against two different versions of the Tesla Model X crossover utility vehicle.

    2019 Jaguar I-Pace electric crossover debuts in production trim; estimated 240-mile range

    Total sales by Jaguar Land Rover are a fraction of those by its rivals Audi, BMW, and Mercedes-Benz.

While Audi has discussed its plans for an all-electric crossover utility version for more than two...

But it's now planning the launch of what will likely be the 2019 Jaguar I-Pace electric crossover just four weeks hence. What is...

    Almost since the two legendary British brands were brought together in 1998, Jaguar has played second fiddle to its sibling Land Rover.
