Over 1.5 million Jaguar Land Rover Ingenium engines have now been produced

Jaguar Land Rover has now produced more than 1.5 million Ingenium engines, as the automaker celebrates its top facility adding a new, advanced powertrain offering.

The Engine Manufacturing Centre located in Wolverhampton, UK, produces the ultra-efficient Ingenium powertrain family, offering a range of clean and electrified powertrains for all Jaguar and Land Rover models.  

The advanced Ingenium family, which consists of a range of clean, refined, and efficient diesel, petrol, and electrified engines, are constructed to maximize performance whilst at the same time decreasing the environmental impact and running costs for consumers. Developed and manufactured in-house in the UK, Jaguar and Land Rover’s all-aluminum Ingenium engine designs are modular, flexible and scalable, with general core technologies. 

The recent addition to the Ingenium range is the six-cylinder diesel engine, which provides improved performance, smoothness and efficiency, powering the new Range Rover and new Range Rover Sport. The advanced in-line Ingenium diesel engine, containing mild-hybrid technology, joins the range of clean and effective six-cylinder petrol and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines produced at Jaguar Land Rover’s facility in the West Midlands.

The evolving, efficient Ingenium family supports the automaker’s long-term commitment to decrease vehicle emissions and enhance fuel economy throughout its vehicle range. This is part of its Destination Zero mission and a commitment to decreasing emissions and making environments cleaner through relentless innovation. 

Jaguar Land Rover will keep developing its Ingenium technology, and advance the electrification of its model line-up and form a concept hydrogen fuel cell powertrain solution. The Engine Manufacturing Centre also has the assembly of Electric Drive Units (EDUs), providing full flexibility between new petrol and diesel engines and EDUs for those consumers who want to make the switch from conventional to electrified vehicles.

The Wolverhampton site is complemented by an increasing electrification ecosystem in the Midlands, with the innovative and technologically advanced Battery Assembly Centre at nearby Hams Hall assembling PHEV and BEV batteries. Together, they will control the next generation of Jaguar and Land Rover electrified vehicles.

Ken Close, Jaguar Land Rover Powertrain Operations Launch Director, said: “We are experiencing an unprecedented demand for cleaner-running vehicles, so it’s more important than ever to provide clean and efficient engines without compromising on the performance or all-terrain capabilities our consumers have come to expect. 

“Our Ingenium powertrains offer the very best of both worlds – better fuel efficiency and lower emissions, and even greater torque for a more responsive and engaging drive.”

The Engine Manufacturing Centre provides engines to Jaguar Land Rover’s global vehicle operations, with the majority of those powertrain units used in UK based facilities such as Solihull, home of the recently announced new Range Rover and new Range Rover Sport.

The recent six-cylinder diesel shares its manufacturing centers with the six-cylinder petrol engine, which was successfully introduced last year. These include machining of the major architecture, cylinder head, cylinder block and crankshaft, and also the assembly and testing of the engine. The Engine Manufacturing Centre has utilized its extensive modern machining, assembly, test, and metrology capability to successfully offer one of the world’s leading clean diesel engines.
