ID.6與其它電動家族的兄弟一樣來自Volkswagen電動汽車專用MEB平台上所生產，預計將搭載單馬達的後輪驅動車型，可實現0-62mph(約0-100km/h) 8.5秒的加速；或是雙馬達的四輪驅動車型，可實現0-62mph(約0-100km/h) 5.6秒的加速。
Jaguar Land Rover is aiming to become a fully-electric brand, and on Jaguar’s side of things, their solution for a flagship SUV will be dubbed J-Pace, built around the same architecture as the next-gen XJ.
Production will reportedly kick off at Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich plant, as part of JLR’s £1 billion investment for the development of electric vehicles – the site will eventually churn out all of the British carmaker’s fully electric models.
In order to give the Tesla Model X a run of its money, the J-Pace will have to offer a maximum WLTP range of roughly 300 miles (482 km). It will also come with all-wheel drive (obviously), plus a platform that is said to hold batteries as large as 100 kWh, although smaller options will be available.

According to AutoExpress, the J-Pace will adopt certain styling elements from the I-Pace, but its profile will resemble that of the F-Pace, meaning it will be more traditional-looking. Meanwhile, defining features will include a closed off grille and sleek LED headlights – typical Jaguar.
While the J-Pace will hold down the fort as Jaguar’s flagship car, the company’s design boss, Julian Thompson, is also interested in smaller vehicles: “I would love to do smaller Jaguars,” he said. “I think reflecting on what’s happening around the world, I would love to do cars which are smaller, more efficient and have all the inherent values of a Jaguar, which are a beautiful thing to look at, with a fantastic interior, and are just great to drive.”
As of right now, the smallest non-sports car Jaguar builds is the E-Pace crossover.

Bentley is pushing for its forthcoming electric sedan to be assembled at its headquarters in Crewe, UK.
The car manufacturer’s new model is tipped to be based on the VW Group’s new Project Artemis architecture whose development is being led by Audi.
Details about Bentley’s Project Artemis-based EV are limited but company chief executive Adrian Hallmark told Autocar in a recent interview that the company wants to have the EV assembled and finished in the UK.

“We are part of a group so we must prove we are the best option, but from a brand point of view, it is our mission to ensure everything can be built here,” Hallmark said. “Yes, it is feasible that we may get coated, unpainted bodies and then do the rest of the work – all the way through to the bespoke trim and interiors, but we have a proud record of adding value on the site that is exceptional. Today, I can say that the mission for this car is to have it in Crewe.”
Speaking about the new Project Artemis project more broadly, Hallmark said the fact that the automaker has been involved in the development of the architecture from day one will help it moving forward.
“Artemis is a derivative of a new electrical architecture. It will be the basis for multiple products in different segments. With our current cars, we had to get into engineering largely after the architecture had been done. We had to add bits as well as engineer the architecture for Bentley. With this new one [Artemis], we’re right in at the beginning defining what it needs to achieve for us. We’re a benefactor of it and paying a contribution, so we can give detailed engineering requirements from day one so it makes industrialization much easier for the company.”
