and

so Poland lost in the end.

I don't see any official reference to what models will be produced there? If it's going to be the Defender then there will have to be other models as well. The capacity they are talking about there is 300,000 and new Defender production was mooted at about 50,000.

Official statement here:

http://newsroom.jaguarlandrover.com/en-in/...ns_110815/

which makes it clear a final decision has NOT been made yet:

"Robert Fico, Prime Minister of Slovakia said,"The Slovakian Government is delighted to be selected as Jaguar Land Rover's preferred location for this feasibility study."

"Subject to the outcome of the feasibility study, a final decision is expected later this year."

It is more than likely going to be a multi-platform production facility which means it could handle the new Defender and Jaguar Pace, etc.. on the same line. No different to what is being done with the Range Rover and Discovery.

Its such a shame nowadays that the UK is losing the advantages of setting up manufacturing facilities. Other countries offer so many incentives to enable them to pull in new manufacturing. This country just hits you with every possible reason to close manufacturing. The heart of this country is slowly losing its beat Crying or Very sad ----------------------------------------------------------

Crooks may land €2 million in land deals for JLR

Looks like it's not all smooth sailing with the new plant.

“Two weeks ago the first reports surfaced that several weeks before the official confirmation of the arrival of the new investment in Nitra landowners were inundated by all sorts of people who offered them a price to the tune of several tens of euro cents (per square metre), while the state is offering €15,” said Procházka on August 26, as quoted by the TASR newswire.

Some 70, mostly elderly, people have fallen for the strategy, he added."
