Thus far most of the world’s Land Rovers have been built in the United Kingdom, but the economic imperatives dictate the future will be different.
Earlier this month Jaguar Land Rover inaugurated a new factory in Changsu, China with local partner Chery. That plant will produce Range Rover Evoques for the local market, as well as the new Land Rover Discovery Sport and, most likely, a long wheelbase version of the just revealed Jaguar XE sedan.
The company will has also begun work on a new factory in Itatiaia, Brazil, which come online from 2016. The new R$750 million (US$311 million) plant will be able to produce around 24,000 annually, including the new Land Rover Discovery Sport.
