British company Jaguar Land Rover has announced plans for serial production of the new line of electrified cars in a factory in a small British town of castle Bromwich near Birmingham.
This writes the Chronicle.info with reference to motor.ru.
This statement was another step in the implementation of the strategy of the group to ensure its customers electric or hybrid versions of all of the new models of Jaguar and Land Rover from 2020. The first electric vehicles coming off the Assembly line in castle Bromwich, will be a flagship sedan Jaguar XJ of new generation. Therefore, Jaguar Land Rover will keep the plant several thousand jobs.
In January of this year the group confirmed plans to launch production of batteries and electric power plants in the County of West Midlands, along with continued investment in new and existing facilities. The launch of the new factory for the Assembly of batteries in British Hams Hall with a design capacity of 150 000 units are planned for 2020.
Together with the centre for the production of engines in Wolverhampton, where there is a global manufacture of electric power plants of Jaguar Land Rover, these plants will ensure the production of the new generation models from Jaguar and Land Rover. A full-scale transformation of the factory in castle Bromwich in the first UK Assembly plant of premium electric cars will be the most significant in the history of the company.
