The really interesting stuff all happened as this week drew to a close - yesterday Volkswagen 'fessed up over the 'dieselgate' scandal and, today, Tata Motors' English luxury vehicle unit Jaguar Land Rover finally confirmed the location for its new manufacturing plant.

A highlight for me in the last week was a go in what Nissan UK bills its third generation Leaf - the 2016 update with an optional longer range 30kwh battery that fits in the same space, weighs 21kg more and propels my favourite EV about 25% further - a theoretical 250 kilometres or, in old money, 155 miles.

We'll permit ourselves a small 'told you so' this week after Jaguar Land Rover finally confirmed it would build the Range Rover Evoque in Brazil from early 2016, as well as the previously confirmed Land Rover Discovery Sport - which Our Man in Brazil first reported last May. JLR had said earlier it would only do 'new' models at the plant, but our sources said otherwise, and it makes sense to do the country's top selling JLR model locally as it (a) gets the price down, increases supply and frees up capacity at the Halewood, England, mother ship. And the high local content encouraged in Brazil allows local variation to suit market needs. JLR also now makes the Evoque at a joint venture in China (again, this gets the price down in a tax-protected market) and also assembles some models in India (ditto). All of which frees up UK capacity.
