Jaguar Land Rover is to move all production of its Discovery from the UK to Slovakia in a move that could lead to the loss of jobs. Britain's biggest carmaker, which is owned by India's Tata Motors, said production will be moved early next year.

Britain’s biggest carmaker, Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Plc, is moving all production of its Land Rover Discovery to Slovakia from a plant near Birmingham, which will be retooled to accommodate a new generation of electric cars.

The company, owned by Tata Motors Ltd, will create a new factory platform at its Solihull, U.K., plant that will enable the production of cars in electric, petrol and diesel versions, said people familiar with the matter, asking not to be named because the information isn’t public. Discovery production will be moved from the beginning of 2019, meaning job cuts at the Solihull plant are possible before it ramps up staffing again, the people said.

Jaguar Land Rover has settled on Slovakia as the preferred location for its next automotive assembly plant, and is now undertaking a feasibility study. In the past few years, JLR has expanded its production capacity to new locations outside of the UK. It has a new factory in China, one under

The investment, totaling hundreds of millions of pounds, according to the people, could cut both ways. While some agency-employed plant workers may lose their jobs, the decision to build electric cars at Solihull marks a major commitment to U.K. manufacturing amid uncertainty over Brexit. That could prove a shot in the arm for a country that, according to Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, has seen business investment 4 percentage points below what it would’ve been had the country not voted to leave the European Union.

After its makeover, the plant will produce the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models. The manufacturer will build the next of its Range Rover Evoque models at a site in Halewood in northern England, where the Discovery Sport is also made.

LONDON, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Jaguar Land Rover said on Tuesday it will build its next-generation Discovery sport utility vehicle in Slovakia , the first car chosen for The company, which is rapidly boosting its model line-up and production volumes to reach 1 million units by the end of the decade

“This significant investment and technology upgrade in Solihull in order to accommodate our next-generation of flagship Land Rover models, and the refit of our Halewood plant for the next Evoque, is proof that we remain committed both to the U.K. and to transformation and growth,” Jaguar Land Rover said by email.

Jaguar Land Rover has said all new models will be electrified from 2020, though a spokesman wouldn’t confirm whether the Range Rover models to be produced at Solihull will be made in all-electric versions. Both SUVs are made in hybrid versions today.

The company said in 2016 that it would assemble Discovery SUVs in Slovakia once a new plant there came on line, without revealing that all production of the model -- which was redesigned in 2017 -- would be moved out of the U.K. It also has an agreement with Magna Steyr, a unit of Magna Inc., to build the Jaguar E-Pace and all-electric I-Pace models in Austria.

“The decision to move the Land Rover Discovery to Slovakia and the potential losses of some agency employed staff in the U.K. is a tough one but forms part of our long-term manufacturing strategy as we transform our business globally,” Jaguar Land Rover said.

The company is grappling with slumping demand for diesel vehicles in the U.K. Sales in the country fell 12.8 percent in the year to March amid consumer uncertainty about Brexit and nervousness about buying diesel cars, though sales grew in China and the U.S.

Bangernomics: How the MGF remains bargain of the century .
The humble and comically unloved MGF signalled the first standalone MG design in 32 years , emerging from the wilderness after many years in development hell. Subjected to a make-believe universe of flaming brazens and frenzied screaming, amid tandems of management and disgruntled workers, MG Rover finally put the MGF into production for 1995; albeit six years after Mazda had taken the spotlight with the MX-5 in 1989. Ironic, as the MX-5 tried to capture all the essence of a British sportscar in the first place.
