Jaguar Land Rover to Move Discovery SUV Production to Slovakia

But on Monday Jaguar Land Rover said that all production of the Discovery would be done in the Eastern European nation.

The big move could result in job losses in the United Kingdom, the company warned, although JLR says it remains "committed to the UK". The Solihull plant employs around 10,000 staff, and between 500 and 1,000 agency staff.

Britain's biggest carmaker, which is owned by India's Tata Motors, said production will be moved early next year.

JLR said in January it would decide this year whether to build electric cars in its home market after announcing all of its new cars will be available in an electric or hybrid version from 2020.

The British report added that although Land Rover had yet to indicate whether the upcoming second-generation Evoque would be offered in coupé guise, this latest development suggested it "almost certainly" wouldn't be.

He faces a maximum sentence of five years confinement, forfeiture of all pay and dishonourable discharge for his desertion. It is unknown whether family had been in contact with Hughes or knew of his whereabouts following his 1983 disappearance.

Although the livelihoods of many of these agency workers are under threat, JLR said the decision to upgrade its factories in Solihull and Halewood should safeguard the future these plants and the vast majority of its work force.

No expansion in the Solihull factory's physical size is planned as a result of the shift in production, but JLR claims the planned change in models helps to futureproof the facility. The biggest plant in the company, it now employs 9,000 people.

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

"This 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", the group said. The manufacturer will build the next of its Range Rover Evoque models at a site in Halewood in northern England, where the Discovery Sport is also made. Sales for the Jaguar E-PACE also continue to ramp up and we look forward to retails of this exciting sporty compact SUV beginning in China in August.
