LOS ANGELES -- Up to half of Jaguar Land Rover's lineup will be plug-in hybrids or electric vehicles by 2020, but none will be self-driving, says Ralf Speth, the company's CEO.
JLR is banking on the growing need for zero-emissions vehicles forced by government regulations, customer acceptance and government incentives, said Speth.
"For a small company like us, this is a huge challenge and it will stretch the organization," Speth said in an interview at the auto show here. But, he said, it also proves that JLR "can be really advanced."
Jaguar displayed the I-Pace Concept EV crossover at the show. Executives said a production version -- Jaguar's first EV-- will follow in 2018.
