Jaguar Land Rover will launch its new electric-capable modular platform in a "large SUV and a large premium sedan," the automaker said at an event held for analysts and investors.
The large SUV is expected to be the next-generation Range Rover, due in 2021, while the large premium sedan will be the replacement for the Jaguar XJ, reportedly arriving next year.
The so-called Modular Longitudinal Architecture, or MLA, can be adapted for electric, plug-in hybrid, and mild-hybrid drivetrains. The lightweight platform will eventually replace the five platforms Jaguar Land Rover currently uses.
The MLA platform will help to "drive margin improvement driven by new products and cost improvements," Nick Rogers, JLR's head of product engineering, said at the event this month.
