Tata Motors CEO, Carl-Peter Forster, has announced that Tata wants to start Jaguar Land Rover production in China within two years.

Forster said at a press conference in London that up to 40,000 Jaguar Land Rover cars a year could be Chinese-built. Starting with Land Rover models first then followed by Jaguar cars. The aim is to make their cars competitive in the burgeoning luxury car market in China.

However, the Chinese-built cars are not likely to be heading for the UK but their destination will be China and other south-east Asian countries. The parts for the Chinese Jaguars and Land Rovers, which will still be largely sourced from the UK, are to be shipped to China for final assembly.
