Jaguar Land Rover to wait for the right time to

launch EVs in India

Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover is ready with electric vehicles (EV) in its

global portfolio but bringing them to India will depend on the EV policy, according

to JLR's head of operations here.

The company will also wait for wider availability of BS- VI fuel in India before

rushing them to launch vehicles complying with the stricter emission norm, said

JLR India President and Managing Director Rohit Suri.

"As far as the company is concerned, we have the product available to us. The

question will be when would we bring them to India? That, we will have to watch

how the ecosystem in India develops itself, which should be dependent on what

kind of policy the government actually brings into play," Suri told PTI in an

interview.

he further said the ev policy is still

He further said: "The EV policy is still not out. So we are waiting for that, what's

there in the policy. Depending on that we will have to formulate our strategy how

to enter."

India is looking at 100 per cent EV for public transport and 40 per cent of personal

vehicles by 2030.

Reiterating the company's preparedness for EVs, he said, "There are a slew of

products already being prepared, many many more are going to be coming up.

First reveal is going to happen in Geneva (Motor Show) this year with the Jaguar

iPace. So starting with that, which is a completely full EV, we have the products."

Suri, however, said the company has no pans to rush its launch here in India.

"There is not point in getting a full EV now with no charging infrastructure

available. You'll only be inconveniencing the customer. You have to have the

infrastructures and it is very critical for completely electric cars," he said.

When asked if JLR was ready to bring BS-VI compliant vehicles ahead of April 2020

deadline, like rival Mercedes- Benz has done, he replied in the negative.

"We have BS VI equivalent cars already available. We have to be careful about

what kind of fuel is available and where is it available," Suri said.

He said it doesn't make sense to launch BS-VI vehicles when the customer cannot

drive it out of the National Capital Region (NCR) due to fuel availability constraints

elsewhere.

Last year Petroleum and Natural Gas Ministry's had announced plans to advance

availability of BS-VI fuel in NCR by two years to April 1, 2018.
