On 27th May, 2011 Land Rover officially opened its first assembly plant in India. Situated in Pune in the state of Maharashtra, the plant will assemble Land Rover Freelander 2 (LR2) vehicles which will be supplied in a ‘complete knock-down’ form from Land Rover's Halewood manufacturing plant in Liverpool, UK.
The inauguration ceremony was led by Carl-Peter Forster, Chief Executive Officer and MD of Tata Motors and Dr Ralf Speth, Chief Executive Officer of Jaguar Land Rover.
The facility in Pune will be subject to Land Rover's mainstream launch quality processes and will be overseen by experienced manufacturing and quality managers who have moved to India from the UK.
Land Rover demonstrated their latest world first at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show - the world’s first 9-speed automatic transmission in a passenger car.
The weather was perfect, the crowds were excited and raring to go.
