Land Rover Discovery production moving to Slovakia

Share

With the manufacturing facility set to start later this year and the company has already announced that it is set to move all production of its Discovery auto to Slovakia before building its new Range Rover at an English factory.

In 2016, the company said it would produce Discovery models in Slovakia.

It stressed that it remains committed to the United Kingdom as it outlined plans to invest hundreds of millions in upgrading its plants in Solihull and Halewood to build to the next versions of hybrid and electric Range Rover models.

Two years ago the firm - owned by India's Tata Motors - insisted that its Slovakia plant would "complement" its United Kingdom operations. These will be the next Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, which will be built on an all-new architecture.

Coming back from two-sets down proved to be a challenge too far for a man not used to contesting best-of-five-set contests. After a gruelling and protracted struggle, Thiem finally regained control when Cecchinato netted a tired forehand.

The Discovery has been built in Solihull since it was launched in 1989.

Fundamentally, the technology upgrade in Solihull will account for a third of the plant.

"The decision to move the Land Rover Discovery to Slovakia and the potential losses of some agency employed staff in the United Kingdom is a tough one but forms part of our long-term manufacturing strategy as we transform our business globally", the group added. It already employs 1,400 people there as it gears up to open. While some agency-employed plant workers may lose their jobs, the decision to build electric cars at Solihull marks a major commitment to United Kingdom manufacturing amid uncertainty over Brexit.

The manufacturer said the new Range Rover Velar, the Jaguar E-PACE and the Land Rover Discovery helped it sell 48,281 vehicles during the month, a 6.1 per cent rise on the same period in 2017.

JLR - which is owned by the Indian group Tata Motors - said that it remained "committed to the UK".

The slump came as demand for diesel vehicles dropped, while the auto maker also blamed uncertainty over Brexit and vehicle taxation.

In addition the next Range Rover Evoque will be built at a site in Halewood.

JLR has an agreement with contract manufacturer Magna Steyr to build the Jaguar E-Pace and all-electric I-Pace, it's first full-electric vehicle, in Austria.
