Jaguar Land Rover would like a ‘tariff-free environment’ post Brexit.

Solihull-based Jaguar Land Rover has today (29/09) unveiled its latest Discovery model at Paris Motor Show.


The new car, which is produced in the midlands, is the latest evolution in Land Rover’s off-road legacy.

Andy Goss, JLR’s global sales operations director, who is currently at the automotive show has given a strong warning on Brexit, saying tariffs in Europe could mean job losses here in the UK – and Europe is the car maker’s biggest market.

Mr Goss, told BBC Radio Four: “Europe is extremely important. Europe’s about a fifth of our sales. It’s a critical market for JLR. 

We’d like to have a tariff-free environment so we can continue to sell. 

We’d actually like to also attract the best labour on an ongoing basis.”

Jaguar Land Rover recently announced it is going to invest £100M at its Castle Bromwich plant.
