New Delhi, February 14, 2019 : Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) on Wednesday rolls out its 'Ingenium' engine portfolio by launching a new range of inline six-cylinder petrol engine.
This new engine will make its debut on the Range Rover Sport HST, as per the company release.
The unit is designed, developed and manufactured at JLR Engine Manufacturing Centre (EMC) in Wolverhampton, UK and is available in 265 KW and 294 KW tunes, with a torque capable of up to 495 and 550Nm.
Company claims that the new Ingenium engines will increase the fuel efficiency by 20 per cent in comparison to its current V6 petrol engine. It is also fitted with a Gasoline Particulate Filter that will reduce the particulate emissions by up to 75 per cent, JLR claimed.
Nick Rogers, Executive Director of Product Engineering said “From the outset we always intended Ingenium to be a full family. That is why we chose to engineer our own flexible engine architecture to meet our bespoke needs, allowing Jaguar Land Rover to adapt and stay ahead of changes in regulation and technology. This second wave of engines, with a Mild Hybrid 48V system and performance-boosting technologies, is engineered to be cleaner and more efficient than ever before.”
In addition with its commitment to deliver clean diesel and gasoline engines, Jaguar Land Rover has also announced investment in electrification with next-generation Electric Drive Units (EDU) starting production at the EMC from 2020.
