All electrified Jaguar Land Rover models will receive more powerful SVR versionsMay 25, 2020
According to the managing director of the SVO sports division, the British brand will present more powerful versions for all of its future electrified models.
All three German automotive giants producing premium cars have announced plans to electrify their range of high-performance cars. Mercedes-AMG plans to introduce a new product with an index of 73, under the hood of which there will be an 800-horsepower hybrid V8 unit, while Audi Sport has hinted that its 4.0-liter Twin-Turbo V8 will be electrified sooner or later. As for BMW, electric cars will be the most powerful versions of the 4th and 7th series.
The company Jaguar Land Rover, or rather its sports division Special Vehicle Operations (SVO) is also working to create more powerful hybrid and all-electric models. This was stated by the head of the division Michael van der Sande.
Contrary to popular belief, the I-Pace electric crossover is not one of the models that will have a more productive version.
This is a bit surprising, considering that the electric crossover received the exclusive performance of the eTrophy Formula E, in which the electric car was added power. Back in September 2019, the same Michael van der Sande said that the I-Pace crossover in the “charged” version of the SVR will certainly be presented.
In an interview with the British Auto Express magazine this month, the head of the SVO division said that “creating a more powerful version of the I-Pace crossover is not a priority for us now – there are other models that we are working on that we cannot talk about now, but we are very interested in electrifying them. “Most likely, one of these models is the next-generation full-size XJ sedan, which will switch to using a fully electric engine.
