Jaguar Land Rover to Move Discovery SUV Production to Slovakia

Jaguar Land Rover to Move Discovery SUV Production to Slovakia

Despite the production move, JLR has said it will spend millions to retool its Solihull plant to produce electric vehicles after it announced plans to electrify all new models by 2020.

Jaguar Land Rover first announced its intention to begin production of the Discovery in Slovakia in 2016, but did not mention at the time that the process could involve the migration of the model's entire UK-based production line.

It is also still possible that the Jaguar J-Pace, the Discovery's sister auto, will be built in Solihull, possibly alongside a new family of electrified and electric Jaguar Land Rover cars coming next year, including the relaunched XJ and Road Rover EVs.

The renovation of production is expected to take place in 2019.

So the decision to move all production to thr country has come as a surprise.

JLR will build Discovery SUVs in its new plant in Slovakia.

He added: "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".

Jaguar Land Rover to Move Discovery SUV Production to Slovakia

In May 2018, Land Rover SA sold 25 examples of the Evoque, although it's not clear how many of these were in the three-door body style.

The opening of the Nitra plant was originally meant to take pressure off JLR's United Kingdom factories, sharing Discovery production with the Solihull plant.

However, sales fell 8.7 per cent in Europe and 8.1 per cent in China due to import duty reduction resulting in deferred purchases ahead of the 1 July effective date.

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

The company, owned by Tata Motors Ltd, will create a new factory platform at its Solihull, U.K., plant that will enable the production of cars in electric, petrol and diesel versions, said people familiar with the matter, asking not to be named because the information isn't public. Also our latest Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models, including plug-in hybrid options, have been performing particularly well in key markets.

JLR has an agreement with contract manufacturer Magna Steyr to build the Jaguar E-Pace and all-electric I-Pace, it's first full-electric vehicle, in Austria.
