Saudi Arabian Plant Will Build New Land Rover Model

The Jaguar-Land Rover group is set to expand its operations into Saudi Arabia, with the construction of a new plant in the region. However, they will first build an aluminium pressing plant, and an actual production line will follow later, but nevertheless, it is part of their plan.

It has not been specified exactly which model will be built at the new facility, but according to autocar.co.uk, it may be a new vehicle underpinned by the new Range Rover platform. The start of production is still at least two years away, and more details will be revealed along the way.

The model will be apparently sent to the pant as a knock-down kit, and it will be merely assembled at the plant, as the workers there don`t have experience in the field, but once everything is up and running, more insourcing will take place.

However, the main goal of the plant is to grand the group access to a relatively cheap and constant supply of aluminium parts, as most of their cars now use quite a lot of it, so it is vital for their future development and expansion into other markets.
