Jaguar Land Rover Automotive plc Key Developments

Jaguar Land Rover to Build the Range Rover Evoque at its New Production Base in China

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) will build the Range Rover Evoque at its new production base in China. The company will initially start with just the single model, which has the higher demand in China. In 2015, however, numbers for the model are expected to rise to as much as 32,300 units produced at the Changshu plant. The 130,000-unit-per-annum production plant in Changshu in China's eastern Jiangsu province has seen a CNY 10.9 billion (USD 1.8 billion) investment, and will start vehicle production in the fourth quarter following testing of its press and body shops in March 2015.

Jaguar Land Rover Unveils New Discovery Sport

Jaguar Land Rover has revealed images and details of its replacement for the Freelander, the Discovery Sport, which will be shown at the Paris Motor Show (France) next month. The images show a vehicle that shares the design language of the second generation Range Rover Sport, but which has been adapted for the different nature of the Discovery brand. The vehicle features a "5+2" seating arrangement which is said to create "ultimate use of interior space with versatility. In the UK market, the vehicle will be initially equipped with the 2.2-litre SD4 diesel engine producing 190PS, available with a nine-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission with four-wheel drive. However, this will be joined by a two-wheel drive variant with eD4 diesel engine later in 2015 which will be capable of CO2 emissions of just 119 g/km. Safety features that will be made available include pedestrian airbag and autonomous emergency braking, while comfort features will include an all-new eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and standard tilt-and-slide row-two seating for maximum interior configurability.
