Jaguar Land Rover’s luxury Jaguar brand will be entirely electric by 2025. The carmaker will launch e-models of its entire lineup by 2030 as car companies globally move toward zero-emission vehicles. The goal for many carmakers is to make the transition to electric vehicles but still retain that feeling and power of a luxury combustion engine model.
Land Rover brand will launch six pure electric models over the next five years, with the first one coming in 2024.

We are pleased to report these strong profits and record third quarter cash flows. It reflects our focus on prioritizing profitable sales and delivering cost and cash improvements.
