According to JLR, this integration “will help to give clients a better ownership experience with faster charging, improved reliability, and increased range." The continuous monitoring of battery health throughout its lifecycle will also support sustainability initiatives by facilitating the transition of batteries from electric vehicles to second-life applications. This strategic collaboration provides JLR with detailed insights into battery conditions and offers specific recommendations to improve performance through software updates.

JLR stated that this partnership is a key component of its Reimagine strategy, which aims to electrify all its brands by 2030 and achieve carbon net zero by 2039. Fortescue has its own ambitious decarbonization goals, targeting the elimination of emissions from its operations by 2030 (Scope 1 & 2).

Thomas Mueller, executive director of Production Engineering at JLR, stated that Fortescue's technology will grant JLR enhanced access to data analytics, which is crucial as JLR aims to electrify its entire vehicle portfolio by 2030. He added that in the industry's shift towards electrification, collaborations like this are essential for further improving the safety, performance, and longevity of our batteries.

Mark Hutchinson, CEO, Fortescue, stated, “The lessons and innovations we have both learned from motorsport are now being applied to the management of battery systems on our roads, unlocking a leading future of EV performance for JLR’s customers."
