JLR OR maybe not

It seems the Jaguar electric isn’t a Jaguar at all its a “Magna Steya”



What does that mean for the future of JLR? I suppose with large lumps being made all over and just bolted together in the final production line means there is really no change... none the less ....



Car industry revolution is round the corner

As I understand it, Magna Steyr are for want of a better expression, contract assemblers. They build the car under contract for a manufacturer who wants to build a new model but doesn’t have the line capacity in their own factories. MS built the original X3 for BMW, many if the first iteration Audi TT and I’m pretty sure the G Wagen was actually their vehicle which MB badged.

So, don’t panic. This is normal.

I think........

It's the way of the modern world - which is why I find Brexit such a sorry joke - components are made all over the place then assembled into finished products. The idea of a little man in a factory somewhere producing a car from raw materials are long gone,

All big firms want to be in the largest single markets they can be, with the free movement of goods and services.

There are all flavours of 'manufacture' - Magna Steyr are at the more extreme end, but in other cases JLR may 'own' the factory, but its full of leased equipment and contract staff with components shipped in from independent suppliers, so not that much different really.....
