May will be the month of recovery for part of Europe. The industries will relaunch their production and this will also be the case for the automobile factories, including those of Jaguar Land Rover. At least in part.
These reopenings will follow the rules of deconfinement and the measures of social distancing decreed in each country where there is a factory of the English group.
A partial recovery in Europe to follow the recovery of the automotive market
While China is just recovering from the coronavirus crisis and car sales are increasing there, the Jaguar Land Rover group will reopen several of its factories from May 10.
Initially, the factories of Solihull and Wolverhampton in the United Kingdom, as well as that of Nitra in Slovakia, will be the first to resume production. They produce the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and the new Defender.
The factories of Castle Bromwich, in the Midlands, and Halewood, near Liverpool, will remain closed pending a return to normalcy in the automotive market.
Austrian partner Magna is also expected to resume production of the I-Pace for Jaguar in May. Additional safety measures will be put in place in all factories to protect the health of employees.
