Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi visits JLR facility in the UK, which is currently owned by Tata Motors. The manufacturing facility is located in West Midland region of England.
Giving a private tour of the facility to Narendra Modi was Cyrus Mistry, Tata Group Chairman. They were accompanied by Ralf Speth, CEO, Jaguar Land Rover and Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya, Founder, Warwick Manufacturing Group.
Currently, Jaguar Land Rover manufacturers over 4,25,000 units per year. The UK facility of JLR is Tata Group's biggest investment and has the largest number of employees when compared to the group's other manufacturing facilities. It is also the biggest investment by an Indian company in the UK.
Narendra Modi spent three full days in the UK visiting several dignitaries and was chauffeured in the all-new Jaguar XE sports saloon.
At this moment, Jaguar does not offer the XE sports saloon model in India. They have already imported the vehicle to India, and this model is expected to debut at 2016 Auto Expo in Delhi. The Jaguar XE is most likely to be offered in the country as a Completely Built Unit initially, and later local assembly could commence based on domestic demand.
