The Jaguar Land Rover Group has a specific project linked to the electrification of the range of cars of its brands. As we know, for example, Jaguar will become an electric-only brand from 2025. To support this plan, an adequate supply of batteries is also needed. Precisely for this reason, the English group it would be talking to Envision AESC for the supply of cells to be used in its future electric cars.
It is not the first time that there is talk of a possible agreement between these two realities. Now, however, the Financial Times adds some interesting details. The negotiations would be going on and, apparently, the possible agreement would not only concern the simple supply of cells.
According to what has been reported, the agreement that is being discussed would be so broad that it could even lead to the construction of a new factory for the production of cells. Plant that could be built in the UK, Jaguar Land Rover’s preferred location, but sites in Spain and Hungary are also being explored. The news is very interesting and that the agreement could also lead to the birth of a factory is not surprising.
Most of the car manufacturers are entering into important agreements for the supply of accumulators. In several cases, these agreements also include the construction of a new factory. Recall that the Jaguar Land Rover Group intends to launch six new electric models on the market by 2025. In 2024for example, will debut the Electric Range Rover. And as mentioned at the beginning, from 2025 Jaguar will become an electric-only brand.
For the moment, the British group has declined to comment on this news, merely stating that it is considering various options and that no decision has been made. Envision AESC, on the other hand, has only made it known that it is in regular contact with a number of auto manufacturers.
It is worth noting that Envision AESC will already build a battery factory with Nissan in the UK. In addition, the company has also entered into an agreement with the Renault group. Together with the French, he will build a battery plant near Douai, France.
