Jaguar Land Rover will use aerospace technology to develop their future lightweight vehicles, so as to accelerate their own testing and development programmes.

24 Oct 2020 | International News : U.K


Jaguar Land Rover is taking part in pioneering research trials to test the capability of advanced lightweight metals and composites to be used in future vehicles.

As part of a two-year project, the company will use technology developed for the aerospace industry to understand how materials respond to corrosive environments, in global markets and over rigorous terrains.

Jaguar Land Rover is working with industry leaders in quality assurance and advanced manufacturing to develop future lightweight materials
Samples of new metals and composites planned for use in future Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles will be built into aerospace-grade sensors and put through their paces in some of the world's most extreme physical conditions, tested for over 400,000km across North America.

The sensors will continuously measure the performance of the materials and share data with the Jaguar Land Rover's product development team in the U.K. With this information, the engineers can accurately forecast the material's behaviour in the development of future vehicle programmes to ensure that next-generation lightweight metals meet the company's stringent standards, delivering a longer-lasting, high quality finish.

Working with industry leaders across quality assurance and manufacturing to develop future lightweight vehicles, increasing efficiency and reducing emissions further is a key part of Jaguar Land Rover's Destination Zero vision - a future with zero emissions, zero accidents and zero congestion.
