JLR Electric Vehicles to be manufactured in Tamil Nadu


Tata Motors, India’s top automobile company by revenue, is poised to manufacture Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) electric vehicles at a new plant in Tamil Nadu, part of its Rs 9000 crore investment in the state. The plant, likely located in Ranipet, will have an initial capacity of 200,000 units, with plans for expansion in the future.

The manufacturing line will produce EMA architecture-based electric vehicles for both JLR and Tata Motors, with around two-thirds of the output destined for JLR and the remainder for Tata Motors. Most JLR vehicles are expected to be exported.

The move to establish India as a key manufacturing base coincides with progress on the India-UK Free Trade Agreement, enhancing bilateral automotive trade.

Additionally, Tata Group is considering relocating some Jaguar Land Rover internal combustion engine model production to India, driven by EU and UK emissions regulations.

Tata Group’s investment in JLR over the next decade includes transitioning Jaguar into an all-electric brand by 2026, with the majority of Land Rover models offering electric alternatives.

Jaguar Land Rover recently achieved record retail sales, reflecting strong demand.

A major project in the pipeline involves producing four models each from Tata Motors and Jaguar Land Rover, primarily for export.

Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd and Jaguar Land Rover have signed an MoU for licensing JLR’s Electrified Modular Architecture (EMA) platform, enabling the development of Tata’s upcoming electric vehicles.

The EMA platform, engineered for advanced driver assistance systems and extensive connectivity, will be localized in India from 2025, enhancing cost competitiveness. This joint project represents a significant collaboration between Tata Motors and JLR, following their successful partnership on the Harrier and Safari SUVs.
