Upcoming Land Rover and Jaguar will have light weight bodies from aluminium

Environmentally speaking – both these brands will prepare a hybrid engines host. Tata Motors – the carmaker from India owns now the Land Rover and Jaguar brand names, so... the company announced that their upcoming units will be from aluminum, making the bodies light weight, reduce this way their costs, and increasing also the efficiency of fuel; reason? the engines will push less mass, resulting a minimized fuel consumption, lowering emissions too.

Ratan Tata - Tata Motors Chairman, said in a recent interview that 'Jaguar and Land Rover is planning to have all its future cars constructed with light weight aluminum bodies resulting in considerable savings in weight, and reduction in CO2 emissions'.

Because of the light weight body, it has many green advantages... but one extremely important aspect is this: both straight speed line and an ability of the car to go around some corner on street is greatly raised too. The Jaguar XJ 2010 is, as you know, the first car from Jaguar made on the 1 time English aluminum structure aerospace-inspired technology of the automaker.
