As Jaguar Land Rover continues to expand its global operations, it has now reportedly set its sights on building a manufacturing facility based in Mexico.
The rumored facility could cost over a half billion dollars, and would complement JLR's new plants that have opened on the last few years in China, Brazil, and even in the UK. Initial reports were that they were considering a facility in the southern United States, but arguably, the lower wages and property costs south of the border would be a deciding factor.
The new facility would likely focus on building Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque models, that have proven immensely popular in the US.
Certainly, Land Rover would not be the first manufacturer to build vehicles in Mexico for export. GM, Toyota, Ford, Audi, BMW and Mercedes have all dabbled in Mexican production in one way or another, some with significant investments in large scale production faculties.
