Jaguar moves Discovery production to Slovakia ahead of new Range Rover in UK

Reuters  |  LONDON 

(Reuters) - (JLR) said it will move all production of its Discovery car to and make its next in Britain, which could be the first vehicle with an electric or hybrid option it builds in its home market.

Britain's biggest automaker has previously said its next generation Discovery will be built at its plant and on Monday said there could be some job cuts in Britain.

"The potential losses of some agency employed staff in the UK is a tough one but forms part of our as we transform our business globally," the firm said in a statement.

The Indian-owned firm has previously said all of its cars will be available in an electric or hybrid version from 2020, indicating the new models could be the first the company builds in Britain.
