JLR to assemble 2nd model in India
The variant, which will be the second JLR model in India, with a 2.2 litre diesel engine will be introduced in India for the first time at an entry price of Rs 44.5 lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai) and will be assembled at Tata Motors’ Pune facility. “The initial Pune-built Jaguar XF models will feature the company’s acclaimed 2.2-litre diesel engine, which is coming to the Indian market for the first time. The Jaguars will be built alongside Land Rover Freelander 2 vehicles, which have been produced in Pune since May 2011,” the company said in a statement.
Jaguar’s currently available diesel and petrol XF variants with 3.0 litre and 5.0 litre engines are priced between Rs 57.15 lakh and Rs 1.03 crore (ex-showroom). Jaguar Land Rover India vice-president Rohit Suri said: “Our best-selling models in India are the Land Rover Freelander 2 and the Jaguar XF... So we are now delighted to offer this car (XF) as a locally built product ... which will enable us to provide our customers with a wider choice of competitively priced models”.
