Jaguar Land Rover (Whitley, U.K.) is preparing for future electric vehicles (EVs) with advanced lightweight composite research that the company says will help deliver increased range, greater performance and a more dynamic drive.

The Tucana project is a four year program with a goal to make the U.K. a world leader in low-carbon technology, by preventing 4.5 million tonnes of CO2 emissions between 2023 and 2032. This is expected to be achieved by accelerating mainstream use of EVs and lighter vehicles for decreased tailpipe emissions and reduced energy consumption of electrified powertrains.
