Jaguar-Pace is a completely new car model. But if you buy a copy, is there a chance that it has rolled around as the pre-production testbil in a previous life.
It is not buddhist reincarnation, which has been at stake, but rather the engineers of the british Jaguar Land Rover automotive group. They are currently testing the possibility to recycle the materials in the In-Pace, and it happens in the first place by pill the earliest copies of the electric car apart and melt aluminiummet on.
Then undergoes a series of tests at the university of Brunel, before it ends up in the group's new cars.
The typing of Jaguar Land Rover in a press release, as the media Motor1 have described.
the Test is part of the group's long-standing work to reduce its CO2 footprint.
Since the middle of 2013, Jaguar Land Rover, according to his own admission, spent 300.000 ton genbrugsmetal in its new cars. In sedanmodellen XE is half of the body, for example produced of aluminum, 'which contains a substantial proportion genbrugsmetal', as the group writes in its press release.
Just the XE model was, according to Jaguar, the first car to use the so-called RC5754 aluminum, which consists of 75 percent genbrugsmetal.
Now, also the Jaguar In-Pace on the bandwagon, and with the hope the manufacturer to be able to recycle yet more aluminum. The goal is a closed loop, where Jaguar Land Rover can put the scrapping of old cars in the system.
It must succeed by working with mobility services as Waymo, who last year ordered 20,000 copies of the Jaguar In-Pace. Cars at a time will be worn out and needs to be scrapped.
- This will make it possible to put a closed genbrugskredsløb together with a tight manufacturing program, since the cars can be picked, prepared and scrapped a lot. It will create a sustainable business model for the recycling of aluminum in the group's own walls, write Jaguar Land Rover in a press release.
the automotive group writes that you are currently using of 180,000 tonnes of aluminium per year.
