It will take over production of the carmaker’s Discovery model but could accommodate a second model as the British company faces uncertainty over a lack of a deal on Britain’s impending exit from the European Union.

Worstberg said no decision on a second model had been taken yet. “It is very essential for JLR globally that the solution reached between the EU and UK does not result in a hard Brexit,” he told reporters.

“We’re starting with one model and one shift. We will start hiring for the second shift in November, that will be operational in the second half of next year. Annual capacity of 100,000 cars will be reached in 2020.”
