In the past few months there’s been a flurry of news about Jaguar Land Rover’s expanding production base.

The company has already opened a factory in Changshu, China, with local partner Chery. The Range Rover Evoque and its sister car, the Land Rover Discovery Sport, are being built there, and, eventually, the long-wheelbase version of the new XF.

However, the capacity of Changshu is limited to around 130,000 units at the moment and the localised production is mostly needed to avoid China’s significant import taxes.

Work on building a small plant in Brazil is also under way; this should start producing Discovery Sport models in 2016. The plant is quite modest, however, with an initial capacity of 24,000 units a year.
