BUILT IN CHINA? Jaguar Land Rover, which has just launched its all-new Range Rover, has announced a joint venture with Chinese automaker Chery to produce vehicles for both brands at a facility outside Shanghai, China.

LONDON - A new joint venture will for the first time see Jaguars and Land Rovers built in China.

The British luxury car company said that a deal has been made with the Chery Automobile Company to build the cars at a new factory to be built near Shanghai, China.

FOR CHINA'S MARKET


The company says it is a joint venture worth the equivalent of more than R14-billion.

The factory will also produce joint-branded cars targeting the Chinese market.

The company says the Chinese government has approved the new partnership.

The new manufacturing plant is likely to be completed by 2014. Jaguar and Land Rover sales have been growing quickly in China in recent years.
