Jaguar Land Rover’s more than $1 billion Engine Manufacturing Center (EMC) recently celebrated production of its first Ingenium gas engine, which will debut in vehicles later in the summer. The inaugural gas engines mark the completion of the first phase of the EMC; a fully flexible, state-of-the-art manufacturing plant that now serves Jaguar Land Rover’s three UK vehicle plants.
Hailed as the most significant new automotive manufacturing facility in the UK in the last decade. Production of the 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gas Ingenium engine, adds to its line-up, which also includes the ultra-low emission 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engines.
The milestone follows an announcement last week that the EMC would manufacture the most powerful four-cylinder engine Jaguar Land Rover has ever produced – for the ’18MY Jaguar F-TYPE.
Since production of the Ingenium diesel engine began exactly two years ago, the EMC has built in excess of 400,000 engines.
