The first of Land Rover's compact SUV models could arrive in 2021, which would revive the spirit of the original Freelander.

Ambitious plans to say the least and I’m sure they’ll be backed up by an amazing quality and dealer network.

I think the problem with the current dealer network is that they are swamped with the volumes of current models.

They need to expand the number of dealers, or assist/encourage the current dealers to expand their facilities and capabilities.

That’s really the point was making -9 albeit in rather an ironic manner!

This strategic push was outlined to worried investors on Friday with a management pledge to spend at least £12 billion in new production, trimming from 6 to 3 the number of vehicle "architectures", with 100 new models in the pipeline. Last year worldwide sales grew by 1.7% to 614,000 units with EU and UK sales down by 5.3% and 12.8% respectively. Chinese sales (mostly Evo and DS) grew by 20% and currently account for 1 out of every 4 vehicles sold. The share price continues to slide on concerns about cash flow which, despite reported pre-tax profits of £1,500 million in FY2018, actually shrank by £1,045 million. I was told 30 years ago to distrust sales numbers because they can be manipulated to say anything - while cash never lies.

So an appeal for more funding from a company that is currently haemorrhaging it at 4% per annum would be one reading. In other financial news JLR 2027 Corporate Bonds are changing hands for 88 cents on the Dollar and one report has Tata reconsidering shelved plans for a JLR IPO, basically the gambler's trick of quitting while you're ahead.

Looks like the new investment might come with strings. Despite very low sales to India last year (just 4609 cars) a new Ingenium engine plant will start production at Pune. Economic Times of India

Meanwhile, as Europe and the UK dither over diesel, JLR now plans to start producing electric vehicles in China. It makes a lot of sense considering that that's where no fewer than 1 in 4 sales (150,000 units) occurred last year, driven by strong Chinese business partnerships already in place. Live Mint

Apart from keeping the investors and local big-wigs happy with a quid pro quo it probably makes commercial sense - I'd bet an Indi-genium will be a lot cheaper to produce than the same engine made in Wolverhampton. Having said that, it's to be hoped that this won't reduce demand for UK engines and is just part of a continued production expansion.

Let’s hope that you are right about the demand for UK engines NDS. I’m not sure but I think BMW had or maybe still have an engine plant in India.
