Jaguar Land Rover Unveils Expanded $600 Million Gaydon Site

Jaguar Land Rover has just completed work at its Gaydon site as part of a project worth more than $600 million.

The British car manufacturer’s new Advanced Product Creation Center at its Gaydon HQ offers more than 50,000 square meters of additional workspace that houses every aspect of vehicle development “from sketch to showroom.” Jaguar Land Rover’s Gaydon site encompasses no less than 4 million square meters, the equivalent of almost 480 soccer pitches.

Not only is the site absolutely massive, but it is also kind to the environment as up to 20 per cent of its energy will come from solar panels on the roof and the rest exclusively from renewable sources.

“Megatrends like urbanization and sustainability are fundamentally changing the automotive industry. At Jaguar Land Rover, we not only participate – we are shaping future mobility. Our vision is for a world in which zero emission vehicles, public transport and self-driving pods will form one smart integrated and networked transport system,” Jaguar Land Rover chief executive Ralf Speth said.

“At Gaydon, we have invested into the future and an inspiring environment for our people. We have created the prerequisites that Gaydon can design and engineer the next generations of outstanding cars in highest quality. We have consciously invested with a “Destination Zero” attitude.”

JLR’s Gaydon site employs 13,000 people, yet it is not just this location the company is investing in. An announcement was recently made that they will transform the Castle Bromwich plant into a factory dedicated to the creation of premium electrified vehicles, starting with the next-generation electric Jaguar XJ.
