JLR to invest in a new engine plant

With recent discussions between Jaguar Land Rover and UK Government ministers, JLR confirms a £355 million investment in a new facility to manufacture all-new, advanced technology, low-emission engines in the UK.

The announcement of the investment by Jaguar Land Rover, a subsidiary of India’s Tata Motors, was marked by a visit to the company’s Solihull vehicle production plant by Rt Hon Nick Clegg MP, Deputy Prime Minister and Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP, Secretary of State for Business Innovation and Skills. The new engine facility will be built at i54 South Staffordshire, a business park near Wolverhampton in the UK's Midlands.         

Dr Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer, Jaguar Land Rover, said: “As part of our long-term strategy for the JLR business, we will design, engineer and manufacture a new family of engines. This is a major commitment for our company and we will produce these advanced, highly-efficient engines for future Jaguar and Land Rover models at a new facility in the UK.” He further added, “As we invest £1.5 billion a year for the next five years on new product developments, expanding our engine range will help us realise the full global potential of the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. The all-new family of 4 cylinder engines will increase JLR's capability to offer high performance engines with class-leading levels of refinement, whilst ensuring continued significant reductions in vehicle emissions.”
