Jaguar Land Rover reduces production
News of another blow for Britain's beleaguered car manufacturers: Loss-making Jaguar Land Rover are reducing production at Solihull and Halewood on Merseyside in response to the global computer chip shortage. Not good news for the sector, or the economy more generally.
The ongoing shortage of microchips has forced Jaguar Land Rover to cut the production of cheaper models at at least one of its plants. They will focus production on their more profitable vehicles - the profit motive in action!
The business is owned by the Indian conglomerate Tata and Land Rovers are also manufactured in Slovakia.
