Jaguar Land Rover and BMW extend alliance plans in exciting new venture

Jaguar Land Rover and BMW recently announced plans to collaborate and develop the new generation of electric vehicles together. This recently agreed alliance between the two brands has since been extended further to include internal combustion engines, or as they’re most commonly referred to: petrol, diesel and hybrid engines.

Jaguar Land Rover and BMW recently announced plans to collaborate and develop the new generation of electric vehicles together. This recently agreed alliance between the two brands has since been extended further to include internal combustion engines, or as they’re most commonly referred to: petrol, diesel and hybrid engines.

With a wealth of experience in electric vehicle development already behind them, Jaguar Land Rover and BMW had initially set out to work together on the expansion of electrified powertrains. According to Autocar, the two brands have now agreed to broaden these plans beyond electric vehicles in an exciting new venture, which is set to include petrol, diesel and even hybrid drivelines for a wide range of models.

It’s thought that Jaguar Land Rover are to be supplied with internal combustion engines by BMW, including in-line four- and six-cylinder units - both with and without electrically-assisted hybrid functions. By extending the existing alliance, Jaguar Land Rover will be able to focus their research and development spending on the electric drivelines in partnership with BMW.

News of this recently extended partnership comes at a time when emission standards are being raised by authorities in key global markets - CO2 and NOx in particular - in order to combat air pollution. Thus meaning that the level of spending required to engineer petrol, diesel and hybrid drivelines has increased.

The joining of forces for both electric and internal combustion engines will mean that BMW and Jaguar Land Rover will be able to share the development costs, allowing them to remain competitive, whilst hoping to reap the rewards of increased economies of scale.
