London (Reuters) – Britain's largest automaker Jaguar Land Rover expects to announce plans to build an electric car in its central English Castle Bromwich factory next week, according to the Sunday Times.
The All-electric version of its XJ Luxury Saloon will be one of three new vehicles made of the general skeleton, followed by Sport Utility Vehicle, the newspaper said.
The company could not reach the emergency immediately for a late comment on Saturday.
This step is a rare, bright spot for the British Automotive Sector, which has decreased job cuts, plant closure announcements and sales in the recent months associated with decrease in demand for diesel vehicles and breakthrough uncertainty.
