Prince William and Kate Tour JLR
Prince William and Kate Tour JLR! Although all the hype in the royal family is centered on Prince Harry’s announcement of his engagement to American actress and humanitarian, Meghan Markle, his older brother and sister-in-law recently stopped by Jaguar-Land Rover’s Solihull manufacturing plant to witness the investment of £2.5bn into the site, which has allowed it to double employment and production since 2008.
“Showcasing the Solihull manufacturing plant to The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge was an honour. We are a proud British company with a passionate workforce and it was a privilege for everyone to be part of this very special visit.” – Dr. Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO
The Duke and Duchess watched production associates complete final checks on the Jaguar F-Pace and Range Rover Velar. They also got a first-hand look into the electric future, the Jaguar I-PACE Concept and Range Rover P400e (Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle). Both vehicles are an important piece of JLR’s commitment to be fully electrified by 2020.
