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.

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.
