Jaguar Land Rover’s new £500 million facility in the West Midlands can produce a new engine every 36 seconds. It will be home to the new Ingenium diesel engine. To help reduce emissions, this engine uses variable exhaust valve timing to shorten the catalyst light-off phase and also improves diesel particulate filter regeneration.
The cooled low-pressure exhaust gas recirculation system reduces combustion chamber temperatures, inhibiting NOx formation. The result will be a highly efficient Euro-6 specification engine, which in the new Jaguar XE will be capable of CO2 emissions of 99g/km and 75mpg. The plant will also produce petrol engines.
