The Jaguar Land Rover unit is gearing up to start assembly of its Freelander SUV at Tata Motors’ Chikhli facility in Maharashtra from November, the Press Trust of India reported.
It cited sources close to the development as saying: “JLR has decided to start assembling vehicles with their cheapest offering in India, which is Freelander 2. It wants to start production soon. So it has decided to utilise Tata Motors' almost ready facility at Chikhli."
A spokesperson for JLR, which is owned by Tata, said the carmaker planned to assemble Land Rover vehicles in India from 2011, but had no further information on the project.
