Jaguar Land Rover to move Discovery production out of UK

Jaguar Land Rover Moving Discovery Production To Slovakia

Jaguar Land Rover Moving Discovery Production To Slovakia

"The decision to move the Land Rover Discovery to Slovakia and the potential losses of some agency employed staff in the United Kingdom is a tough one but forms part of our long-term manufacturing strategy as we transform our business globally".

The existing plant in Solihull, which now manufactures the Land Rover Discovery, is being retooled by Indian-owned Jaguar Land Rover to accommodate previous statements made by the company that all new models will be electrified by 2020.

JLR said there would be a "significant investment and technology upgrade", with the carmaker believed to be spending hundreds of millions of pounds to meet its low-carbon commitments.

The vehicle maker also said it would invest millions in a revamp of its Solihull factory, where the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models will be built.

In the short-term, more work than anticipated will move to JLR's new £1bn facility in Nitra, Slovakia, which is due to open at the end of the year.

The company said in 2016 that it would build Discovery SUVs in Slovakia once a new plant there came on line, while saying some of the production of the model - which was redesigned in 2017 - would remain in the UK.

De Niro drops Trump F-bomb onstage at Tony Awards
De Niro and Springsteen visited the White House in 2009 as both were recipients of the Kennedy Center Honors that year. He has played Special Counsel Robert Mueller on "SNL" recently in skits mocking Trump (played by Alec Baldwin).

The big move could result in job losses in the United Kingdom, the company warned, although JLR says it remains "committed to the UK".

JLR - which is owned by the Indian group Tata Motors - said that it remained "committed to the UK". Sales for the Jaguar E-PACE also continue to ramp up and we look forward to retails of this exciting sporty compact SUV beginning in China in August.

The slump came as demand for diesel vehicles dropped, while the auto maker also blamed uncertainty over Brexit and vehicle taxation.

"The new, award winning Range Rover Velar was an important contributor".

"From the 2019 model year, Land Rover has rationalized its Range Rover Evoque body style offering to concentrate on the five-door model and convertible, which account for the majority of sales", a brand spokesperson told Autocar.
