The car of the British automaker’s luxury cars Jaguar Land Rover manufactured in Brazil – Evoke and Discovery Sport – in the plant that the company builds in Itatiaia (RJ) will have a portion of their production made in the factory of Chery Chinese automaker in Jacarei, State of Sao Paulo.

Chery in Brazil has a paint booth with capacity to paint 100,000 vehicles per year – double the plant’s production capacity which is 50,000 units / year. However, the factory has about 5,000 units production schedule this year.
paint booth is part of the most expensive production of a car plant. Chery chose to build a large unit of this kind in his factory as planned strong expansion of production – something that has not occurred. Already the Jaguar Land Rover does not have a paint shop in its Itatiaia plant (RJ).
Thus, Jaguar Land Rover will save a huge amount of money to run the paint on their cars Chery. The factory of the British automaker has a production capacity of 24,000 cars per year. So even if all their cars are painted at the factory of Chery, yet the Chinese unit will have a gap of 70,000 units / year of painting.
Logistically it also makes sense to partnership, since the two units are within 180 km of each other -. which highlights the advantage of the partnership
The partnership between Jaguar Land Rover and Chery Automobile is not new, since both already operate a plant together in China, where the Discovery Sport are produced and evokeSource:. [Agency Auto Date]
