Jaguar Land Rover has confirmed it will build a range of electric cars at its Castle Bromwich factory in the UK Midlands.
The first electric model will be the new “all-electric” XJ. The announcement was made as the final car of the current generation XJ rolled off the line.
The move has been expected for some time, with the company already confirming it will build batteries for up to 150,000 cars at Hams Hall from 2020.
The new XJ is expected to ride on the new flexible architecture that supports both electric, plug in hybrid and conventional ICE cars.
