Land Rover Discovery Sport confirmed for production, to be assembled in Halewood

Land Rover has confirmed the production of the Discovery Sport as the model in question will come to life at the JLR Halewood facility.

The newest SUV signed by Land Rover, the Discovery Sport, which is still under development, will soon hit the production line. The model in question will be assembled at the Jaguar Land Rover Halewood plant which has added around 250 new jobs in order to help manage the production of the vehicle. The facility has received a 200 million GBP investment and the total workforce has reached 4,750 employees.

“The Land Rover Discovery Sport is the next in a line of exciting new products to come from Jaguar Land Rover. I am delighted that Halewood – and Liverpool – has been selected for this new investment. It is totally deserved, and strengthens the ‘special relationship’ that bonds Jaguar Land Rover to this great city”, said the JLR CEO, Ralf Speth.

The Land Rover Discovery Sport will replace the Freelander and it will be influenced by the new Range Rover Sport, in terms of design. The model will share the same platform with the five-door Range Rover Evoque and it will get a dual exhaust system, a tailgate mounted spoiler and a lowered roof line, for a sportier appearance. The engine lineup will include a 2.2L diesel with 150 HP or a 2.0L with 240 HP. More units will be introduced later on. The model will be officially unveiled during the 2014 Paris Motor Show, in October.
