Tata Motors to build 2,000 Land Rovers a year in Pune plantMarch 2nd, 2011 - 2:48 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 2(ANI): Jaguar Land Rover, a British automotive business owned by Tata Motors, is to start building 2,000 vehicles a year at its factory in Pune.
It will start its overseas production drive with the Land Rover Freelander 4×4, but Tata Motors made clear that other Land Rover and Jaguar models are set to follow.
Parts produced at JLR’s factory in Merseyside, England, will be shipped to the sub-continent in ‘knocked down’ form and assembled there.
Company officials stressed that the decision to build in India was a sign of expansion, not an attempt to export jobs to India to exploit cheaper labour
Tata Motors has auto manufacturing and assembly plants in Pune, Jamshedpur, Pantnagar, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Sanand and Dharwad, as well as in Argentina, South Africa and Thailand. (ANI)
