TO INSPIRE VITALITY WITH LIGHTWEIGHT TECHNOLOGY, BRINGING OUT JAGUAR’S TRUE CHARACTERISTICS OF CREATIVITY TO EVERY VEHICLE.
Chery Jaguar Land Rover introduced JLR’s innovative and premium light weight technology into China to create more excellent, safe and environmentally friendly products with leading technology and manufacturing engineering.
Jaguar Land Rover is an industry leader of aluminium technology in the world while Jaguar’s aluminium technology history is as long as Jaguar brand’s history. Aluminium technology is adopted to reduce weight, improve handling, fuel efficiency and furthur emission performance.
Chery Jaguar Land Rover introduced the JLR’s leading, intelligent, green and premium aluminium technology into China, and applied the aerospace-classed self-pierce riveting and adhesive joining technologies to the manufacturing of intelligent aluminium architecture, becoming the leading automotive manufacturer in China in respect of aluminium body production.
Jaguar is unique in Al body design, which is crucial to Jaguar’s design aesthetics. With the outstanding advantages of being light and recyclable, aluminium alloy brings more wiggle room to car designers to optimise weight distribution, enabling Jaguar to bring lighter, faster-responsive and more environmentally friendly models.
Chery Jaguar Land Rover creatively applies advanced aluminium materials of various series and features to intelligent aluminium architecture, realising a nearly 50:50 front-back weight distribution of body design, bringing vehicles with more satisfying handling and performance, more accurate steering and quicker response. A lightweight vehicle structure allows more space in terms of weight for sophisticated technologies.
Intelligent aluminium architecture IAA is Jaguar exclusive aluminium body platform. It is not only a car manufacturing method, but also a completely new set of car manufacturing concepts. It means Jaguar is able to customise the advanced body structure, and to extensively expand product range. Combined with Jaguar’s leading power performance, unrivalled aesthetics along with Jaguar’s unique pure and simple line design, the precise manufacturing process will bring out Jaguar’s true characteristics.
Comparing with conventional body platform, Chery Jaguar Land Rover’s intelligent aluminium architecture has the advantage of modular design that can brings a greater flexibility into product. Aluminium body shop possesses world leading self-pierce riveting and adhesive joining technologies and equipment, with an automation ratio of 100%. In the AL Body Shop, Chery Jaguar Land Rover's leading technology is present everywhere, from production technology to the whole process quality control system.
One challenge is to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of our vehicle fleet while maintaining the attributes of luxury, performance, refinement and comfort that our customers expect. Chery Jaguar Land Rover’s sustainability plan is to meet the industry carbon emission challenge while deliver vehicles that our customers desire.
With Chery Jaguar Land Rover’s innovative and premium light weight technology, aluminum body is around 28% stiffer and 20%-40% weight reduce comparing with steel of same design, bringing lighter, stronger and more environmentally friendly models to consumers, and effectively reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emission. Chery Jaguar Land Rover applies green manufacturing technology, and intelligent aluminium architecture material is recyclable in a closed loop. Aluminium body shop replaced the original joining technology with aero level SPR, which is a cold joining technology with less noise, zero smoke emission, better energy utilisation, more environment friendliness and higher efficiency.
