Jaguar Land Rover to cut United Kingdom staff, output as diesel sales slump

Tata-owned JLR plans 1000 job cuts in UK

News has learned that Jaguar Land Rover will not be renewing the temporary contracts of 1,000 agency staff at Solihull.

Year-on-year sales drops for both Jaguar and Land Rover are in double-digit percentage levels, with Land Rover down 20 percent and Jaguar down 26 percent in the first quarter of 2018 compared with the same period in 2017.
