Johannesburg - An electric Land Rover will be available from 2020, as Jaguar Land Rover pushes its expansion into the electric vehicle market. South Africans will have access to the model and will also be able to buy an electric Jaguar next year, according to Jaguar Land Rover chief executive Ralf Speth.
Speaking during a visit to Johannesburg on Thursday, Speth said his company is at the forefront of electrification. “Using the freedom of tech, we can offer our customers a bespoke product in future.”
Speth said the South African market will increasingly benefit from new electric car technology which offers more kilometres on a single charge. However, infrastructure needs attention.
