This electric SUV will be produced along with the new XJ and J-pace. As per the sources, all three Jaguar Land Rover electric cars will be underpinned by the latest Modular Longitudinal Architecture (MLA) platform.

According to the same source, the next-generation Range Rover Sport and Discovery 6 will also be underpinned by the new MLA platform.

Recently the company had invested a significant capital of £1 billion on its Castle Bromwich and JLR’s factory in Solihull. It is believed that these electric cars will be manufactured here.

Additionally, the production of IC vehicles, as well as plug-in hybrids, will continue in the same factories.

If we talk about electric J-pace, it is believed to be more stylish and equipped with a luxurious interior. However, the technical details of this electric car from Land Rover remain a bit vague.
