Jaguar and Land Rover have donated more than 160 vehicles around the world to support emergency services during the coronavirus crisis.
With the global launch of the new Defender cancelled because of the coronavirus crisis, Land Rover has donated 27 new Defenders to the British Red Cross to “deliver medicine and food vulnerable people across the UK who now need additional support due to social distancing rules”.
Jaguar and Land Rover teams in Spain, France, South Africa and Australia have loaned vehicles to their Red Cross societies. This service is being provided with fleets of vehicles now available due to the postponement of launch events.
Like many other automotive brands around the world, Jaguar Land Rover has offered the UK government access to its research and engineering teams to assist with engineering and design, printing of 3D models, and more.
“The health and safety of our employees, customers and their families remains our priority. Jaguar and Land Rover will do everything we can to support people in need around the world. Our partnership with the Red Cross goes back 65 years and we will work hand in hand with them to do all we can during this global health emergency. We will also provide help to those closer to home in our local communities. We can all play a part in helping the vulnerable during this global pandemic,” said Jaguar Land Rover Customer Experience Director, Finbar McFall.
