Jaguar Land Rover & BMW Jointly Developing Electric Car Parts

I think this is the most unbiased article that I have read in quite a while. It was refreshingly... boring... unlike that Volkswagen opinion piece that some weirdo recently shared.

People demand "environmentally-friendly and cost-effective electric cars," which are not profitable. "Jaguar Land Rover announced an over $4 billion loss earlier this year due to a decline in SUV sales in China and diesel emission clampdowns."

A four-billion loss due to one country!

Quote:
The resulting partnership between the two groups allows them to keep costs to a minimum through shared technology development, production planning, and joint parts purchasing for transmissions, electric motors, and power electronics.

BMW is planning an ambitious rollout of 12 fully-electric models by 2025
Do we believe these Germans?

I ordered one gasket years ago and have received e-mails from AutoHausAZ ever since, but this is at least the second time that I thought they sent me a good article. It does not say who wrote this, but a Google search does not indicate they are using someone else's material.

The Chinese make knock-off of the land Rovers.

You commented on the thread, but only that you tried to see how another site rated the one I saw.

I expect the automotive industry to consolidate, especially once EVs begin to take off. EVs are simpler, and less would differentiate the brands. Maybe there will be a separate "shell" manufacturer for the skateboards at some point.

It always amazes me that I can see so many different vehicles on the road when each and every one of them are fantastically expensive to engineer, tool up for, and produce. There should be like 20 cars available, not hundreds.

Eventually, there will be.

Twenty different platforms, with hundreds of variations in body paneling.
