Could be some exceptionally good deals on new derv cars. They need to shift them one way or another. :)

Yup, new car registrations down 20% on last yr and the worst September numbers posted since the financial crisis.

Wonder what could be causing it  ???

Surely not. I'm given to understand that Brexit will deliver a significant boost to UK manufacturing  :)

Seems to me to be a classic case of a British firm sitting back on their laurels, as it seems JLR have been caught with their pants down by DERV becoming unfashionable.  :-\

Oh.... and something about China and stricter emissions regulations from Brussels.  ;)

I am expecting Europe wide initiatives to lower the price of milk floats and hound our tractors off the road. Brexit dividend if you want a label as everything has to be down to something.

The polution figures have just been released for this year for Spain. amazingly Andalucia has three of the five over the limit places in the whole country.

Anything to do with the locals bouncing around in 20yr old seats and fiat pandas.  ;D

A Unite union spokesman gave the same reasons as TB for the shutdown. Always know he was a closet lefty.  ;D
JLR spokesman said its due to a 46% drop in Chinese sales, which is their biggest market.  :)

Sales are down 35% in UK. Thats what is hitting JLR currently, and primary reason for slowing UK production.

JLR has other production facilities around the world, producing the most popular models for those areas.

It's a delayed result of stopping production of the much maligned/loved Defender.  :)

Land Rover's current lineup is abysmal IMO as all the models are basically clones of each other and all you get to choose is the size of vehicle.  :-\
