The JLR group is the latest carmaker to embrace the move away from internal combustion engines in the wake of stricter government proposals after the Paris climate accord.

"We will introduce a portfolio of electrified products across our model range, embracing fully electric, plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid vehicles," JLR chief executive Ralf Speth said.

JLR is set to launch its first fully electric model, the SUV Jaguar I-Pace, next year.

The group, owned by Indian conglomerate Tata, told AFP in November 2016 that it intended to double its production of cars worldwide in future years.

British media reported that JLR's emphasis on electric cars in Britain, where most of its car production is based, could lead to the creation of 10,000 jobs in the country.
