Production had to be delayed due to cost cuts, which were necessary due to coronavirus infection. At the same time, the debut of new products should take place before the end of this year.

Jaguar Land Rover is delaying the premiere and production of two new models – Range Rover and Jaguar XJ. This became known on Thursday, September 17. The reason was the coronavirus epidemic. British brand CFO Adrian Mardell said in a conference call that the two new products will be unveiled in October and November.

Thus, the delay will be only 2 months, since the dates were previously named August and September. For the new cars, the most modern MLA platform was used, which is a proprietary development of Jaguar Land Rover. At the same time, there are no additional details about the new products yet.

The electric Range Rover should be comparable in size to the Velar, but could be slightly shorter. Car production will be established at the Castle Bromwich plant.

JLR is also continuing to work on the next generation of Range Rover and Range Rover Sport vehicles, as well as the new Defender 90.

Meanwhile, Jaguar showcased its updated F-Pace crossover. The transformation was quite significant and affected both the exterior and interior of the car. The engine range of the crossover has also been updated.
