Jaguar Land Rover will "turn every stone" including launching plug-in hybrids to bring its high average CO2 emissions down to an EU-approved level by 2021, JLR head of product development Wolfgang Ziebart told Automotive News.

"Going forward we will assume that the electric part of the drivertrain will increase. The electric motor will become stronger and the combustion engine might get smaller," Ziebart said.

By 2021, JLR must reduce CO2 to 132 grams per kilometer from 180g/km now, which is down from 242g/km in 2007, Ziebart told journalists at the company's research center in Gaydon, central England.

"There is still a way to go for us to achieve this," Ziebart said.

Half of that target will be achieved through changes to JLR's powertrains, he said. When the Jaguar XE midsize sedan launches next year it will feature the automaker's new range of four-cylinder diesel and petrol engines. The most economical diesel version from JLR's Ingenium family will emit less than 100g/km of CO2, the company says.

"Ingenium will go a long way to improving [our emissions]", Ziebart said.

Only a matter of time before everyone does it including Jaguar. Not for me though, I don't buy that electric cars are the way forward. Hydrogen is the future - runs and drives just like a petrol, without the range issue and having extension leads out of the window and across the pavement.
