The company Jaguar Land Rover plans to seriously expand production power beyond Albion. Recall, last fall the company opened a Chinese factory with a maximum volume production of 130 000 vehicles a year. Just a few days ago, JLR has signed an agreement with Magna to assemble their models in Graz, Austria. And the next step – his own company in Poland or Slovakia. Talks have already started. The final selection will be made by the country in the coming days or weeks.
The main assembly plants located JLR house: in Castle Bromwich, Solihull and Halewood. There are a large factory in China Changshu and a small “otvёrtochnoe production” in the Indian city of Pune.
East European company should open in 2019. Its capacity will be 350 000 vehicles a year. Add that in 2016 the plant will be launched in Brazil JLR. Next will be considered the question of the shops in Mexico. And if that is not enough, in the distant future – a plant in the United States. But his fate will decide only in 2018. Recall that in the past year, sales of JLR made about 463 thousand cars. For comparison, last year’s figures Audi and Mercedes – more than 1.7 million units, and group BMW – more than two million.
