WHS on BBC Midlands Today

This month,  WHS featured on BBC evening midlands today to discuss the new I-pace vehicle from JLR  in which WHS supply parts daily to Graz, Austria. The news piece featured was all about the local companies supplying to JLR sites across Europe.  The new I–Pace along with its sister car the E-pace has created 35 jobs at our Minworth site, a revenue increase of 5% and the project being live for a further seven years. WHS mentioned how proud and honoured we are to be a local midlands company suppling JLR, one our largest customers and their plants in Europe.

Sales Director Andrew Kendrick spoke on behalf of WHS commenting “Its fantastic news for WHS in Minworth and our employees going forward”

JLR have been busy refining the new electric SUV known as the I Pace and covered over 1.5million test miles and a further 11,000 hours of rig simulations completed by more than 200 production prototypes. Potential specifications revealed on their website suggest that the car will have range of around 310-miles on a single charge and is powered by a 90kWh battery and supported by an all-wheel-drive system.

The car also allows it to charge from 0-60mph the around four seconds and charging the battery to 80 per cent charge will take around 90 minutes.
