Jaguar Land Rover partners with Wolfspeed to supply silicon carbide technology for next-generation electric cars
Conscious environmental work! Using the company’s Reimagine strategy, Jaguar Land Rover will transform into an all-electric modern premium brand by 2025, as well as work to achieve carbon neutrality by 2039.
It is gratifying to receive these announcements about the plans for future electrification.
The new collaboration with Wolfspeed will secure the supply of silicon carbide semiconductors and technology, a significant factor when next-generation Jaguar Land Rover models are to be electrified.
Next-generation electric cars equipped with inverters based on silicon carbide technology will be able to deliver significantly better efficiency and range, which is demanded by consumers and manufacturers alike.
On Wolfspeed’s website you can read today: Jaguar Land Rover and Wolfspeed Inc. have today presented a strategic collaboration with the aim of securing the supply of silicon carbide semiconductors needed in the brands’ future electric vehicles. The advanced silicon carbide technology will result in improved efficiency and extended range.
Using its Reimagine strategy, Jaguar Land Rover will transform into an all-electric business, in order to achieve carbon neutrality throughout its supply chain including products, services and operations by the year 2039.
Carbon neutrality throughout the supply chain
Wolfspeed’s advanced silicon carbide technology will be used in the vehicles’ inverters and handle the transfer of power from the battery to the electric motors. The first Range Rover vehicles with this advanced technology will be available from 2024, and the new all-electric Jaguar brand the following year.
The partnership builds on Wolfspeed’s existing relationship with the Jaguar TCS Racing team competing in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship, where advanced silicon carbide technology has been used to improve efficiency and performance on the racetrack.
