Jaguar has recently announced the production start of the new XF in India, at the company’s facility in Pune.
According to the British based automaker, this is the first time in history when Jaguar-Land Rover has commenced production of the XF outside the UK. The model is now assembled at the company’s plant in Pune, India, along with the Land Rover Freelander 2, which is already produced in the Asian country ever since May, 2011.
“The Land Rover Freelander 2 and the Jaguar XF are our best-selling models in India and this has driven the move to build these products locally”, said the Jaguar Land Rover vice president, Rohit Suri. “India is a market that offers significant opportunities for both the Jaguar and Land Rover brands. The expansion of our Pune operations to include the Jaguar XF will help us realise our ambitions for the Indian market”, added the chief executive of Jaguar Land Rover, Ralf Speth.
The Jaguar XF has recently entered production in India and at the time of its local launch, the model will only become available with the company’s 2.2 liter diesel engine. Additional details on the Jaguar XF in India are limited for the moment and will be announced close to its debut.
