The advanced Ingenium engines for all Jaguar and Land Rover models are produced at the Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, UK.
The Ingenium family includes an array of clean and electrified powertrains available in both petrol and diesel fuels offering maximum performance along with efficiency reducing the environmental impact as well as running costs. The all-aluminium Ingenium engine designs are modular, flexible, scalable and are designed, developed and manufactured in-house in the UK.

The Engine Manufacturing Centre in Wolverhampton, UK, also houses the assembly of Electric Drive Units (EDUs) that offers flexibility to switch from conventional fuel to electrified vehicles. The facility in the West Midlands also houses the advanced Battery Assembly Centre at nearby Hams Hall assembling PHEV and BEV batteries enhancing the electrified ecosystem.
