India: Jaguar XF starts production in Pune

The Jaguar XF has recently entered production at the company’s facility in Pune, India, after a joint venture deal has been signed with Chinese carmaker Chery.

According to the British based automaker, the Jaguar XF is now being produced in India too, at the company’s plant in Pune, which has been developed ever since May 2011. The carmaker says that this is the first time in history when Jaguar Land Rover has commenced production of the XF outside the United Kingdom. The Jaguar XF isn’t the only model coming from JLR which is being assembled in India and it’s actually sharing the assembly line with the Land Rover Freelander 2.

Production of the Jaguar XF in India has started after JLR has signed a joint venture deal with local manufacturer Chery. The model will also be sold locally but its components used are being supplied by the Castle Bromwich plant in Birmingham. Withouth the joint venture, Jaguar Land Rover has sold a total of 42,000 cars in China back in 2011 and 71,490 units last year, which makes the country its largest single market. JLR is also planning to build a production facility in Saudi Arabia, which will help boost its sales in the Middle East.
