Land Rover to start production in India

Tata Motors big cheese Carl-Peter Forster has just announced that Land Rover production would begin in India in 2011. So far there is no word on which model exactly would be built in the sub-continent but the T5 platform used on the current LR4 and Range Rover Sport seems a likely option. The T5 platform is also expected to be used on an upcoming replacement model for the iconic Defender range which is expected to be launched sometime in 2012.

Forster also announced that Jaguar is looking for a partner to produce cars within China. Because Chinese law dictates that foreign automakers are required to work with local companies in China, Jaguar is in negotiations for a production deal in the rapidly developing nation. China’s luxury vehicle market is still experiencing growth and local production would undoubtedly make it easier for Jaguar to get a much larger share.
