Jaguar Land Rover considering a factory located in the United States

Article by Christian A., on October 20, 2014

We just announced that Jaguar Land Rover will produce the Range Rover Evoque and the new Land Rover Discovery Sport at its Changshu plant in China, but it appears that the company has even bigger plans. According to the Sunday Times, Jaguar Land Rover is considering building a factory in the United States and it is already in talks with several southern U.S. states about financial support.

The new factory would have an annual capacity of 200,000 vehicles and will enable the company to avoid import taxes. Jaguar Land Rover is currently expanding its global presence and the British manufacturer will also build a factory in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Mexico is another possible location for a new plant but it appears that Jaguar Land Rover wants it in the south of the USA, which is also the place where BMW and Mercedes-Benz build vehicles.

When asked about the new US factory, a JLR spokesman said that plans regarding such a plant are just speculation. Oh really? We don’t believe this!
