Jaguar Land Rover is delighted to confirm that Her Majesty the Queen will officially open the company’s new, state-of-the-art Engine Manufacturing Centre on Thursday October 30th 2014. HM The Queen will be accompanied during the visit by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.
The opening of the £500m Engine Manufacturing Centre near Wolverhampton is a seminal moment for Jaguar Land Rover as it embarks on manufacturing in-house engines for the first time in a generation, cementing its position as the UK’s most significant automotive investor.
The new facility is home to the ‘Ingenium’ engine family which will power a new generation of Jaguar Land Rover products designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK. This starts with the 2.0-litre diesel in the Jaguar XE.
