Jaguar Land Rover is proud to announce its sponsorship of the UK Team at the 2016 Invictus Games. The company will provide financial and logistical support via a fleet of vehicles, while the UK Team will wear the Jaguar Land Rover brand on their competition kit. Jaguar Land Rover has already pledged to be Presenting Partner of the 2016 Invictus Games following its successful support of the inaugural 2014 event in London.

The Invictus Games is a multi-sport event that is open to all wounded, injured and sick serving personnel and veterans, it is due to take place for the second time from 8th to 12th May 2016 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, Florida. The Invictus Games use the power of sport to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and generate a wider understanding and respect for wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women.

Jaguar Land Rover has a long history of supporting the British military and continues to demonstrate this through meeting commitments made through its Armed Forces covenant – it has hired more than 200 former servicemen and women since 2013. The company’s initiatives to boost employment for those leaving the Armed Forces include a work placement programme run in conjunction with Mission Motorsport and the Ministry of Defence’s Career Transition Partnership to help wounded, injured and sick former service personnel find a fulfilling second career.

Trials for the 2016 Invictus Games start today at the University of Bath Sports Training Village, with 188 athletes competing in a variety of events in the hopes of being part of the 100-strong UK team. Among them will be three veterans who have been working at Jaguar Land Rover as part of the company’s work placement programme for those injured in service.

The figures provided are as a result of official manufacturer's tests in accordance with EU legislation. A vehicle's actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.

The figures provided are NEDCeq calculated from official manufacturer’s WLTP tests in accordance with EU legislation. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2 and fuel economy figures may vary according to wheel fitment and optional extras fitted. NEDCeq are figures calculated using a Government formula from WLTP figures equivalent to what they would have been under the old NEDC test. The correct tax treatment can then be applied.

The figures provided are WLTP. WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO2 figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

TEL (Test Energy Low) and TEH (Test Energy High) figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. TEL refers to the lowest/most economical figures (with the lightest set of options). TEH refers to the highest/least economical figures (with the heaviest set of options). WLTP legislation dictates that where there is <5g CO2 variance between TEL and TEH, only the TEH is declared.
