On December 7, 2012, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) facility in Solihull in the United Kingdom had a very important visitor, the country’s Prime Minister David Cameron. Mr Cameron was given a brief tour of the JLR new customer handover centre where senior engineers showed him the first all-new Range Rover that will be exported to India.
Jaguar Land Rover recently invested £370 million (Rs 3,232 crore approx) in its Solihull facility to support the production of the recently launched all-new Range Rover. The vehicle is priced at Rs 1.72 crore (ex showroom Delhi) in India.
The Prime Minister saw the company’s brand new state-of-the-art aluminium bodyshop, which is the largest of its kind in the world. During the tour, the Mr Cameron met several apprentices and employees who are involved in the production of the all-new Range Rover. He was also given an insight into the Jaguar Land Rover’s business from the company’s CEO Dr Ralf Speth and his senior executive team.
Prime Minister David Cameron said: "Jaguar Land Rover's continued success, and rising exports, demonstrates the strength of the automotive sector in the UK, and the crucial role this industry plays in growing and rebalancing the economy.
“Their success, particularly in fast growing markets like China and India, shows that UK manufacturing can compete and thrive on the global stage, and is testament to the excellent and highly skilled work force they have here in Solihull.”
