New J-LR plant in Brazil


Jaguar Land Rover has opened a new $ NZ450m (£ 240m) fac­tory and train­ing fa­cil­ity in Brazil, a first for a UK au­to­mo­tive group in Latin Amer­ica.

The new fa­cil­ity will build both the Range Rover Evoque and Land Rover Dis­cov­ery Sport for Brazil­ian cus­tomers. The plant in­cludes Jaguar Land Rover’s first overseas Ed­u­ca­tion Busi­ness Part­ner­ship Cen­tre which will pro­vide a range of class­room ac­tiv­i­ties for up to 12,000 lo­cal
