Jaguar Land Rover is the UK’s largest automotive manufacturer, built around two iconic British car brands: Land Rover, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium all-wheel-drive vehicles; and Jaguar, one of the world’s premier luxury sports saloon and sports car marques.
At Jaguar Land Rover we are driven by a desire to create class-leading products that deliver great customer experiences. The largest investor in R&D in the UK manufacturing sector, we have invested £12 billion in the last five years and in the current year alone will spend over £3 billion on new product creation and capital expenditure. More than 80% of our vehicles produced in the UK being sold abroad.
Jaguar Land Rover is the largest employer in the UK automotive sector and employs almost 40,000 people globally, which has doubled since 2012. The company supports around 275,000 more jobs through our dealerships, suppliers and local businesses.
Jaguar Land Rover has three manufacturing plants in the Midlands and Merseyside and a £1 billion Engine Manufacturing Plant in Wolverhampton. Jaguar Land Rover has invested £3.5 billion in its UK plants since 2010 – more than any other manufacturer.
The Solihull manufacturing plant in Birmingham employs 10,000 people and has invested over £1.5bn over the past five years, including £370m to extend its expertise in lightweight vehicle manufacturing of Range Rover and Range Rover Sport and £500m on Europe’s largest Aluminium Body Shop and state-of-the-art Final Assembly Hall to support the production of the Jaguar F-PACE.
