Jaguar considering becoming an EV only brand

There are some rumors going around that the bosses over at JLR are considering becoming an EV dedicated brand within the next decade. The company already has a fully electric saloon that's meant to replace the XJ that is expected within two years. As the XE and XF reach the end of the lives in 2023, there's a chance they could be replaced by an electric crossover as well. With sales drops across their lineup, this transition may help the brand return to profitability.

With the interest and success that the new I-Pace is seeing, I can see why they are considering this. The brand as a whole continues to struggle and for whatever reason they continue to support and use diesel powerplants.

infrastructure demands are a big one so much that certain brands are partnering up along with pressuring carbon reduction moves,
whether anyone likes it or not, the future is entirely EV, just depends how fast some companies want to move.

Automakers are well aware of this and that's why we've seen them partner for new charging networks like Ionity. The days of having brand specific chargers are numbered, with the exception of superchargers from Tesla and soon Porsche.

Big players like Shell that have to standardize it on their end probably play into what car makes do because well, all they can fit is one type along with traditional means to refuel.
