GENEVA, March 4 Luxury car maker Jaguar Land
Rover plans to increase investment at its UK engine
plant and double employment at the site to around 1,400, its
chief executive said on Monday.
Ralf Speth told a press conference ahead of the Geneva car
show that the firm planned to increase investment at the plant
to over 500 million pounds ($754 million).
Jaguar Land Rover, owned by India's Tata Motors,
has ridden a big rise in demand for its luxury saloons and SUVs
over the past two years, notably in China and other emerging
markets, bucking the trend of plant shutdowns and falling
production at many European automakers.
