Jaguar Land Rover has three advanced manufacturing facilities in the UK. The company's Solihull manufacturing facility, which has been home to Land Rover since production began in 1948, currently builds the Defender, Discovery, All-New Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. For the first time, Jaguar-branded vehicles would be manufactured at the Land Rover historical plant. The new facility will also become a show room plant as customers will have the opportunity to visit the plant before collecting their vehicle.
