Official: Jaguar and Land Rover to skip Detroit Auto Show

Jaguar and Land Rover, both owned by Indian carmaker Tata Motors, will skip the Detroit Motor Show next month to appear at the Auto Expo in New Delhi, India. A spokesman of Jaguar Land Rover defended the skip, saying that India is a fast-growing market. The brand’s U.S. executives, however, will show up at the Cobo Center in Detroit, just in case Land Rover's Range Rover Evoque SUV wins the 2012 North American truck of the year award.

Tata Motors launched its newest concepts, the Jaguar C-X16 and Land Rover DC100, in the recent Frankfurt and Los Angeles auto shows.
