Jaguar Land Rover
Jaguar Land Rover South Africa has hosted an electrification workshop for the country’s media at its Training Academy in Pretoria.
Led by Richard Gouverneur, Managing Director
of Jaguar Land Rover South Africa and sub-Sahara Africa, the aim was to educate
the attendees on a number of aspects of electrification, including the basics
of batteries, how to charge an EV and the roll out of a charging infrastructure
With the South Africa team readying themselves
for the launch of the Jaguar I-PACE, the Range Rover Sport P400e PHEV and Range
Rover P400e PHEV into the market, they spent some time giving journalists an
insight into the challenges Jaguar Land Rover has faced launching a new range
of powertrains into a market still in its EV infancy.
To show Jaguar Land Rover’s commitment to
electrification, last September the South Africa team announced its Jaguar
Powerway, which will see the installation of 82 public charging points located
at retailers, convenient locations in cities and along frequently-travelled
long-distance holiday routes.
The event was wrapped up with media guests
getting an opportunity to explore the Jaguar I-PACE and Range Rover PHEV
