Report – Jaguar Land Rover to use German fuel-saving system

According to sources from within the industrial chain, the British from Jaguar Land Rover will soon make use of the fuel-saving UniAir electrohydraulic variable valve lift system from German auto supplier Schaeffler.

JLR would not be the first global player that uses the system, which has also been previously acquired by the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and is used in Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge and Fiat engines.

While both Schaeffler’s head of engine system development, Marin Scheidt, and Jaguar Land Rover declined comment, the first did point that the company’s new customer is “in the luxury and sports car segment” and is not among the three German premium automakers.

Jaguar Land Rover, according to the industry insiders is the safest bet now, as the company is working hard on reducing its CO2 footprint, aiming to reach the stringent EU requirements set for 2020, as well as tighter fuel consumption regulations coming to the US and China.

In Europe, Jaguar Land Rover must reach a 45% reduction of the amount of CO2 produced across its range between 2007 and 2020, which translates the average emissions of the brand must be of 130g/km by 2020, according to Brussels-based green lobby group Transport & Environment.
