Turns out the Indian market will get their own local production...

http://www.livemint.com/Industry/LE...over-plans-to-assemble-XE-model-in-India.html

Code-named X760, the company is likely to start rolling out the locally-assembled model either from end of next calendar year or beginning of 2016, said one of the two people cited earlier. The company plans to sell 1,300-1,400 units per month, he said. Unlike other emerging markets, India sales make a very small share of JLR’s global sales. In 2013, JLR sold 3,000 units in India and is expected to close this year with 3,100, according to IHS. JLR does not report India-specific sales separately. IHS’ Gupta estimates the sales of the India division to expand by 20% in 2015.

If you want to sell in India, you have to produce there. If you don't, the tariffs are just too high. Your product becomes way more expensive and people in India become a lot less likely to buy it.

What is "CKD?" I typed it into Google and it is telling me that it is "chronic kidney disease." So I am going to say that is wrong.

Now i'm just concerned of the day they give us indian produced jaguars, seeing how much cheaper it would be to make them, not something I would want to happen.

"frowned upon nations"?

What are these nations you speak of? China? Mexico?

Are those countries really any better than India?

CKD's are Complete Knock Downs. Car is assembled, disassembled and shipped in boxes, reassembled on arrival.

CKD seems really stupid though. The only reason is to avoid tariffs. They are doing the work twice.
Would you rather pay the tariffs then? Obviously the cost of the work is less than the cost of the tariffs, where does stupid come into play?

Exactly, in a situation like that they would just pass the added cost onto the consumer, which can also hurt them when it comes to their pricing compared to the competition.
