I just found an article that says that JLR is going to build a new factory in either Austria or Turkey. Apparently these countries have even cheaper labor costs than the southern US, and I suppose that is what it is all about these days.
This report comes from a "highly placed company source" which means that this wasn't actually announced by JLR.The British group, now owned by Tata Motors, is trying to expand its production outside the United Kingdom, its traditional turf. According to the Birmingham Post, JLR is hesitant to expand its production beyond its three plants in the UK due to high wage costs as well as recent pay disputes with trade unions.
