Jaguar Land Rover to manufacture in China

Jay Nagley

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has officially confirmed it is planning to set up a joint venture to manufacture in China.

It will work with Chery, one of China's largest car manufacturers to establish manufacturing operations. The move had been widely expected: JLR's Chinese sales have boomed from under 3,000 a year in 2005 to 42,000 a year by 2011.
