Jaguar Land Rover has made a big decision: the production fo the Land Rover Discovery will be moved in Slovakia. This announcement will lead to job cuts in the UK. According to Ken Gregor, the firm's finance chief, such a move would slash thousands off the cost of each car. 

"The decision to move the Land Rover Discovery to Slovakia and the potential losses of some agency employed staff in the U.K. is a tough one but forms part of our long-term manufacturing strategy as we transform our business globally", according to a company spokeperson.

In Solihull plant, Land Rover will produce the next generation Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models. 

"This significant investment and technology upgrade in Solihull in order to accommodate our next generation of flagship Land Rover models, and the refit of our Halewood plant for the next Evoque, is proof that we remain committed both to the U.K. and to transformation and growth", is said in the official statement.
