UK -  Jaguar Land Rover to invest £120m in Solihull plant

Car giant Jaguar Land Rover is to invest a further £120 million in one of its UK plants.

The company said the money will be spent at Solihull in the West Midlands.

The announcement was made at the Frankfurt Motor Show where JLR showcased its new F-Pace model.

Built alongside the Jaguar XE at the company's flagship Solihull manufacturing plant, Jaguar's new model has resulted in an additional £120 million of investment in the facility.

This takes the total amount invested in Solihull to £620 million - the largest investment in the 70 year history of the plant.

Jaguar Land Rover chief executive, Dr Ralf Speth said: "We are pushing the boundaries in design, engineering and manufacturing to deliver outstanding cars.

"Our investment in the development of the F-Pace, its industry leading architecture and the UK plants which support its manufacture provides a clear signal that Jaguar Land Rover is committed to Britain and advancing the skills and capability of the industry".
