Narendra Modi at JLR plant UK

As a part of PM Narendra Modi’s UK visit, he spent some time at Tata Motors’ owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) plant situated at Solihull in the West Midlands region of England.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi was shown around the state of the art Jaguar Land Rover Plant in the UK by Cyrus Mistry, Tata Group Chairman, Mr. Ralf Speth, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover and Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya Founder of Warwick Manufacturing Group.

The JLR plant is the largest investment by an Indian company in the UK with annual production of 425,000 vehicles making their way to markets across the globe.

It was in 2008 that Tata Motors took over Jaguar Land Rover from Ford following which the ailing British brand saw a significant increase in revenues.

As on date, the Solihull plant is the hub of production processes and is from where the company produces the new XE, next generation XF sports saloons, besides the new F-PACE performance crossover, all of which will soon be launching in India.

Noting increased revenues of the company over past five years, Foreign Secretary S. Jaishankar drew attention to the contemporary economic relationship between the two countries driving in the message that “we are job makers, and not job takers”.

Following the visit to the Jaguar Land Rover UK plant, PM Narendra Modi proceeded according to plan to take part in the G20 summit at Turkey.
