Jaguar XJs will be built for the Indian market at Jaguar Land Rover's plant in Chakan, near Pune, it has been announced at the Delhi motor show. The move has been made in order for the car to be competitively priced against locally built rivals.
The move, which will help Jaguar cut the cost of the car by avoiding shipping and increasing import charges, means the XJ will be the third JLR product built in India.
Jaguars and Land Rovers had previously been solely imported into India. However, as a result, JLR found itself unable to compete with the more aggressively-priced locally produced products. As a result, it built a new manufacturing facility in the Indian town of Chakan, in the Pune district.
