Ford, Tata to sign Jaguar deal

2008-03-18 14:41
London - Ford is expected to announce the sale of its UK luxury brands Jaguar and Land Rover to India's Tata Motors in the middle of next week, according to sources close to the deal.

"It's pretty much there," said one of the sources. "Dates can come and go, but it could be some time around March 26."

An announcement had been expected at the start of this month, but was delayed as the two firms discussed their relationship, including technology sharing and Ford supplying engines and body parts for the two brands.

"They've made good progress on getting through the paperwork and it could well be soon after the Easter holidays," said the second source.

"I don't think there's been a lot of haggling about price."

A Ford spokesperson said the deal had encountered no major roadblocks and was still expected in early 2008.
