The world is a very different place since the first car was made in 1885. Advances in technology have created an industry that today produces 86 million cars a year and is worth $2 trillion. Around the world, the automotive industry employs nearly 8.4 million people. And over the last 134 years, this industry has experienced growth like no other, designed cars that hit speeds that were once unimaginable, and seen automotive design develop to build cars that are fit for every purpose and every pocket.
At Jaguar Land Rover, we are leading the way in the development of tomorrow’s cars with a clear vision for the future; Cars that are cleaner, smarter and more connected to the world. We are moving from ICE to ACES – the world of internal combustion engines will give way to autonomous, connected, electrified and shared cars. Today’s industrial revolution will be driven by demand for de-carbonisation, better air quality, less waste and greater convenience, through automation and innovation. Today, circa 40,000 proud and passionate Jaguar Land Rover people dare to think beyond the challenges of today, to imagine, design and manufacture the most innovative, prestigious and sustainable cars of tomorrow.
Our strategy is strong, our facilities are world-class and our people are prepared. Our partnership approach to business is unlocking new opportunities every day.
