“The next Chapter in the history of the brands Jaguar and Land Rover will become the most exciting and challenging in our history. Premiere of the legendary Defender, investments in clean, smart and attractive models, electrification and modernization of the production will be part of a competitive and thriving company,” said JLR CEO Ralph Shpet.

In a report by the end of 2018 Jaguar Land Rover reports worldwide were sold 592 708 vehicles (forecast to be minus 4.6% compared to the record 2017), and the Land Rover brand “dropped” by 6.9% (411 875 cars), while Jaguar, in contrast, grows at 1.2% (180 833). The strong fall in sales in China (-21,6%) was partially offset by increases in North America (+7,2%) and other countries (+7.3 per cent). However, the results in the UK (-1.5 per cent) and Europe (-7,8%) are not encouraging.

The causes of the trouble are known to the buyers turned away from the diesel engines came into force new economy WLTP, the pound hit a looming Brexit, oil poured into the fire, trading war of the USA with China. To save the situation is called “transformation program”, which among other things requires spending cuts of 2.5 billion pounds within 18 months. Therefore, by the way, JLR will miss the March auto show in Geneva.

This year’s great premiere from JLR will be only one (Defender), but will go on sale undeniable hit — the Range Rover Evoque is the second generation. Russian prices have already named. Crossovers will be with us in April.

Need to reduce not only costs but also the staff. Officially confirmed the dismissal of 4,500 people. It’s about 10% of the total staff in the UK. With 1,500 employees volunteer force left the company in 2018. the closure of factories not talking, although the production site in Solihull due to the fall of demand was stayed for 14 days in October, and the factory at Castle Bromwich passed in December on a three-day working week.

However, the new complex in Slovakia is open. Investments aimed at the development of engineering units in Manchester, Ireland and Hungary. The centre in Wolverhampton from the end of the year, mastered the production of electric powertrains, and in Hams Hall will do battery. “We are taking decisive actions to ensure long-term growth, despite the many challenges facing the industry. The agenda for change and Accelerate Charge (“Charging and acceleration”) ensures that the opportunities created by the growing demand for Autonomous and connected electric machine, we use the maximum,” — said the boss Ralph Shpet.
