In parallel with the EcoMotion exhibition being held in Israel, JLR Group, which unites the Jaguar and Land Rover brands, announced that it will establish a center to search for Israeli start-ups for investment. The joint venture is a joint venture between JLR and Indian technology giant TCS, which has been operating in Israel since 2005 and belongs to the giant Tata concern, which is the controlling shareholder of Jaguar and Land Rover.
As part of the collaboration, the two companies will try to locate Israeli start-ups engaged in the fields of mobility and transportation, in order to invest in advanced technological solutions in technological fields including electric propulsion, connectivity, digital services, metaverse, building smart organizations, manufacturing, streamlining supply chains and sustainability. In doing so, the two companies join other automakers such as General Motors, Ford and Volkswagen, which are already operating in the field in Israel and are courting local companies.
