Jaguar Land Rover to build new £355M plant for 4-cylinder engines

Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) will build a new £355 million (US$484 million) facility to manufacture a new family of advanced technology, low-emission 4-cylinder gasoline and diesel engines in the UK.

As part of our long-term strategy for the JLR business, we will design, engineer and manufacture a new family of advanced engines. This is a major commitment for our company and we will produce these advanced, highly-efficient engines for future Jaguar and Land Rover models at a new facility in the UK.

As we invest £1.5 billion a year for the next five years on new product developments, expanding our engine range will help us realize the full global potential of the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. The all-new family of 4 cylinder engines will increase JLR's capability to offer high performance engines with class-leading levels of refinement, whilst ensuring continued significant reductions in vehicle emissions.

—Dr Ralf Speth, CEO, JLR
