Every Jaguar is born for the road, but many start their first journey on rails.
From our Castle Bromwich railhead, every weekday morning, the Jaguar Express sets off with new cars bound for Southampton. Here, they are unloaded and shipped off overseas.
The same journey would have required around 22 truck transporters – amounting to 45 million truck miles since the railhead opened in 2003. Using rail offsets the major environmental impact of this, as well as improving our own distribution efficiency.
Today, around 70% of our cars are distributed by rail, and we're hoping that will increase.
Distribution efficiencies are included in the Life Cycle Assessment of our cars, measuring their total environmental impact.
