Jaguar XF Saloon Now Made in India as Well

For the first time in its history, the Jaguar-Land Rover group has commenced production of the Jaguar XF outside the United Kingdom at its facility in Pune, India.

The premium saloon is assembled from components sourced from the company’s Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham, UK, alongside the alongside Land Rover Freelander 2 vehicles which have been in production at the Pune factory since May 2011.

“The Land Rover Freelander 2 and the Jaguar XF are our best-selling models in India and this has driven the move to build these products locally,” said Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar Land Rover India.

At launch, the made-in-India XF will be available exclusively with the brand’s 2.2-litre diesel engine, which is offered to the Indian market for the first time.

Ralf Speth, Chief Executive of Jaguar Land Rover, said: “India is a market that offers significant opportunities for both the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. The expansion of our Pune operations to include the Jaguar XF will help us realise our ambitions for the Indian market.”

“Jaguar Land Rover is committed to building a sustainable, profitable business; increasing our global manufacturing footprint is a key element of our growth strategy. Together with our joint venture manufacturing facility already under construction near Shanghai, expanding our operations at Pune will help us increase the global volume of cars we build, in addition to those produced in the UK,” he added.
