LONDON Jan 13 Premium carmaker Jaguar Land
Rover plans to create 800 new jobs at its Solihull factory in
central England due to demand in China, Russia and the United
States, a person familiar with the matter said on Sunday.
JLR, owned by India's Tata Motors, said earlier
this month that its outlook for 2013 was positive after UK
vehicle sales rose almost 20 percent in 2012.
The source said confirmation of the new jobs could come
later on Sunday. Last week, Japanese carmaker Honda cut
around 800 jobs at its plant near Swindon due to falling demand
for its vehicles across mainland Europe.
Jaguar declined to comment.
