We have been named the largest automotive vehicle and engine manufacturer in the UK in 2017. We produced 532,107 vehicles, a 2.3 per cent fall from a record high in 2016, at our three plants in Birmingham and Liverpool. We also produced 305,907 clean Ingenium engines in Wolverhampton.
The news comes as the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) announced that annual UK car production has fallen for the first time, having reached a 17-year high in 2016.
Dr Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are proud to strengthen our position as Britain’s number one car manufacturer.
“However, the car industry is facing a number of challenges that are undoubtedly impacting consumer confidence, particularly in the UK. Jaguar Land Rover must become as lean and fit as possible so that we can continue to invest in our autonomous, connected and electrified future.”
More than £4bn has been spent on our vehicle and engine plants since 2010, bringing six all-new nameplates and two ultra-clean Ingenium engines to the market.
