Report: Jaguar to give XE assembly duties to China

AutomotiveNews Europe hails in with news regarding Jaguar, who is apparently working in a joint venture with Chinese-based Chery Automobile. According to the report, Jaguar-Land Rover owns a significant assembly plant in Changshu, which picked up some additional Range Rover Evoque production for Asian markets. Later on, the new Land Rover Discovery Sport should follow.

But now, apparently you can add the Jaguar XE to the list of cars to be made at the Changshu plant, according to AN E. The plan is to sell 20,000 units in China next year.

AN didn’t say whether or not all of Jaguar’s XEs will be made in China as automakers tend to place assembly lines and plants in regions according to their markets. But Chinese-built cars from foreign brands isn’t that too far away, with one example being Volvo’s latest offerings.

Either way, we hope quality control is up to par with everyone else.
