Tata Motors Jaguar LR drives in new Range Rover SUV
" When asked about possibility of assembling more models in India to have price advantage, Suri said: "We are looking at more models to be assembled in India.
We are conducting a study to find which model will make a business sense for us but nothing has been decided yet.
" Suri further said Evoque is also one of the models being considered for assembly in India.
At present, JLR assembles only the Freelander in India at Tata Motors' Pimpri plant.
Dicken said in the last 12 months, JLR has sold over a lakh units of the Evoque globally.
He further said the Indian market continues to be a strategic one for the company although JLR has recently announced a JV in China with Chery Automobile Co with plans to invest 10.9 billion RMB.
Suri said JLR will expand its dealership network to 25 by the end of 2013-14 from the current 15 with a focus on tier II cities like Chandigarh and Bhuvaneshwar.
