Land Rover To Discontinue Three-Door Range Rover Evoque Globally

Land Rover To Discontinue Three-Door Range Rover Evoque Globally

But its decision to move all production to the Eastern European country comes as a surprise.

Two years ago the firm, owned by India's Tata Motors, insisted that its new Slovakia plant would "complement" its United Kingdom operations, with the Discovery built in both locations.

However, it added: "Significant investment and technology upgrade in Solihull in order to accommodate our next-generation of flagship Land Rover models, and the refit of our Halewood plant for the next Evoque, is proof that we remain committed both to the United Kingdom and to transformation and growth".

Britain's biggest vehicle manufacturer, Jaguar Land Rover, is to transfer all production of its Land Rover Discovery model from the West Midlands to a plant in Slovakia, potentially putting hundreds of agency jobs at risk.

The existing plant in Solihull, which now manufactures the Land Rover Discovery, is being retooled by Indian-owned Jaguar Land Rover to accommodate previous statements made by the company that all new models will be electrified by 2020.

Jaguar Land Rover has indicated it will have to cut some British jobs after taking the decision to move all production of its Discovery SUV from Britain to Slovakia.

Bethesda Just Announced ELDER SCROLLS VI and STARFIELD
While the announcement was somewhat overshadowed by Fallout 76 and the announcement of Elder Scrolls 6 , it's a nice little bonus. That means a Nintendo Switch port could be happening in the future, just as it did for Fallout Shelter tonight.

Profits at the auto maker were nearly cut in half in the fourth quarter as it was stung by a combination of falling diesel sales, Brexit uncertainty and vehicle taxation.

"The new, award winning Range Rover Velar was an important contributor". The E-Pace is also being built in China.

The company has also blamed Brexit for hitting demand in Europe's second-largest autos market, where demand fell 6 percent past year, a source told Reuters in April.

Diesel sales have been falling in the wake of additional surcharges and changes to VED introduced by the Government last April.

The big move could result in job losses in the United Kingdom, the company warned, although JLR says it remains "committed to the UK".

JLR employs some 40,000 people in total making it the UK's biggest auto manufacturer in terms of both output and heads. This will be due to the crossover delay in Slovakian production beginning next year, and the redevelopment of the Solihull plant which is already underway.
