Jaguar and Land Rover to Get Engines from Tata?

Currently Land Rover and Jaguar are using engines from its former parent, Ford. But future models could get engines developed by the brands’ new parent Tata.

Tata is considering jointly developing engines with Jaguar and Land Rover according to its chairman Ratan Tata. He stated that the goal is to “optimize the synergetic strengths between JLR and Tata Motors in India”. If the program is approved engines could be produced in the U.K. and India.

By developing engines in-house with Jaguar and Land Rover, Tata would be able to cut costs, which would help make the vehicles cheaper for price sensitive markets like India.

Tata is also looking at producing cars in China.
