Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover is mulling to assemble the Jaguar luxury cars in India in the next 3-5 years. Currently, the British company assembles only the Land Rover Freelander SUV at the parent company Tata Motors’ plant in Pune.
"We are looking at it, but volumes in India are very small now. As we go forward, we will surely consider this." Jaguar global brand director, Adrian Hallmark said in a statement. However, no specific details were revealed by the company regarding the location of the assembly unit or when the first model will be rolled out.
Jaguar Land Rover is also currently planning to set up an engine manufacturing facility in India in order to meet the demand in the country. The investment to be infused into the engine manufacturing facility is expected to be close to 355 million pounds.
