Also noticed today after some research that he E Pace will not be made in the UK

I wonder how this decision will be affected with the whole brexit issue (if it ever happens) ... and if it does should not all british cars at least be made in the UK ?

it'll be the first Jaguar to be built outside of the UK (at Magna Steyr's plant in Graz, Austria). so jaguar must have some sort of master plan .. well hope so

thoughts :?:

As I understand it UK plants are all at capacity, I think its rumoured the I-Pace will also be built outside the UK. This is the official Jaguar PR on the subject:

The E-PACE is a key vehicle in the expansion of Jaguar Land Rover's global manufacturing footprint and it will be made on two continents.

Initially, with UK facilities close to capacity, Jaguar Land Rover has agreed a partnership with engineering and manufacturing specialist Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria. The new E-PACE will be the first vehicle produced under the arrangement with the all-electric Jaguar I-PACE also commencing production there in 2018.

Contract manufacturing provides increased flexibility, agility and efficiency across global manufacturing operations and while the UK remains the epicentre of Jaguar Land Rover's manufacturing, engineering and design capabilities, Magna Steyr is one of the world's leading automotive suppliers, with extensive contract manufacturing experience.

Additionally, the Jaguar E-PACE will be produced exclusively for the Chinese market at Chery Jaguar Land Rover's state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Changshu. It will go on sale in China later in 2018.
