According to a report on Autocar UK, JLR has a product onslaught planned till 2024 which involves at least four new models, a replacement for every JLR model sold currently and 99 new model variants.
The first JLR model due for a successor is the Range Rover Evoque, whose successor is expected to debut at this year's Los Angeles motor show in November. The second-gen 2019 Evoque is reportedly based on a heavily modified version of the current steel platform and is named Premium Transverse Architecture (PTA). The best-seller from Land Rover will feature the revolutionary ‘see-through’ bonnet technology, new plug-in hybrid variants, and a 10 percent improvement to luggage space.
The next models to move to the Evoque's architecture will be the Land Rover Discovery Sport and the Jaguar E-Pace, says the report. However, JLR has a different plan for its other models. The company is keen on its new MLA (Modular Longitudinal Architecture) - the new rear- and all-wheel-drive architecture which will allow JLR to offer petrol and diesel mild-hybrid engines, plug-in hybrid and a pure battery electric set-up. The MLA will eventually underpin future JLR models.
First up on the MLA platform will be the long-awaited new Defender which will be made at JLR’s new Slovakian plant from 2020. The next-gen XJ luxury sedan is reported to make use of the electric version of MLA.
Finally, the all-new Range Rover will be introduced, sometime in 2021 with 48V mild-hybrid Ingenium petrol and diesel engines. A fully electric Range Rover is not expected before 2022.
