As soon as JLR/Tata's redevelopments hit the showrooms, they've faced an unsurmountable capacity problem at their three UK factories - Solihull, Castle Bromwich and Halewood where they're now at full capacity with little or no room for expansion.

Building cars in major "export" markets makes a lot of sense as the cost simply absorbs some of the revenue from that "export" market and reduces the overall effect of world currency fluctuations to the global business, while still retaining the high value production elements in their home country to offset the R&D costs.

I look forward to JLR moving their high value production elements to Mumbai or New Dheli to have it in their home country.

I would have expected China to be there NEW factory location for both China being an important market and steep import duties OR is JLR expecting the US market to be more important then China

That's cool. I realize that it's "too easy", especially when your frame of reference is anecdotal evidence, rather than real World experience or current statistics to back up your claim.:p:

Not sure if this is a joke, or if Tata is just delusional.

I'm sure they are for Jaguar and Land Rover and not Tata cars, and they I assume will export the left over capacity.
An annual volume of 200,000, for JLR, even in North and South America? Are you kidding me?

So what should they do, A. build a factory that can only produce a maximum of 50.000 units with no room for expansion, or B. build one that could potentially produce 200,000? Hmmm, I wonder what the smart choice would be???

If you are stuck option 'B' is the correct answer. I was lucky enough to see the new Defenders. They'll need that extra capacity imo.
