Currently reading: Wolfspeed to supply chips for next-gen JLR vehicles
The all-electric Range Rover will use the technology first, before all Jaguar vehicles from 2025

American electronics firm Wolfspeed will provide the next generation of Jaguar Land Rover electric vehicles with semiconductors, which the firms say will contribute to increased powertrain efficiency and improve range. 

The first car to use Wolfspeed’s semiconductors, which are produced at its Mohawk Valley Fab facility in Marcy, New York, will be the all-electric Range Rover from 2024. 

All Jaguar vehicles will use Wolfspeed’s technology from 2025, as it makes the transition to become a premium all-electric brand. 

Wolfspeed says its semiconductors will manage the transfer of power from the battery to the electric motor, for propulsion systems with an output from 400V to 800V.
