Tata to Reduce Emissions of Jaguar and Land Rover - (India)

September 18th, 2008

Tata Motors is initiating measures to reduce emissions from Jaguar and Land Rover to meet the stricter emission norms that are expected to come into force across the European Union from 2012. Measures include use of more efficient engines, reducing weight, getting in better driveability and bringing down resistances. The company intends to spend £700 million to develop and implement new environmental technologies and introduce new manufacturing materials.

The average fleet CO2 emissions of Jagaur and Land Rover is much higher than the proposed EC norms set to come into play from 2012. The EC wants to reduce the emissions from around 160 gms per km to 130 gms per km by 2012.

Acording to Tata Motor’s MD Ravi Kant "Surely Jaguar and Land Rover are conscious of the direction in which things are moving and, of course, they will take adequate measures to see that they comply with the norms."

Don Hume, director (corporate and government Affairs) for Jagaur and Land Rover notes that "Our plan is to see JLR reduce its overall fleet emission by as much as 18% over the next few years across all vehicles."
