On the third and final day of his UK visit, PM Narendra Modi  dropped by to check out Tata Motors’ owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) plant, which happens to be the largest investment by an Indian company in the UK. Tata Motors took over Jaguar Land Rover from Ford in 2008, and the deal has managed to turn around the fortunes of the ailing British brand, with a significant increase in revenues.

Modi was given a tour of the state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, which is situated at Solihull in the West Midlands region of England. Accompanying him were Tata Group chairman Cyrus Mistry, Jaguar Land Rover CEO Ralf Speth and Warwick Manufacturing Group founder Lord Kumar Bhattacharyya.

Today, the Solihull plant produces 425,000 vehicles annually, and its production lines are hubbub with three fresh Jaguars – the all-new XE and next-generation XF sports saloons, along with the all-new F-PACE performance crossover. All three are India bound soon. Post his UK visit, Modi pushed off to Turkey, where he’ll be attending the  G20 summit, which opens today.
