So far this week, a few car companies who have factories here in the UK have stopped production temporarily, due to the ongoing outbreak and issues with coronavirus. This week, Nissan announced that its Sunderland factory would be closed for a while and now Jaguar Land Rover is the latest company to do the same.
Jaguar Land Rover has a number of factories in the UK and production will stop at the plants in Castle Bromwich, Halewood and Solihull. The company has said this process won’t be instant, but will happen “over the course of next week.”
Other car companies in other countries have stopped production too, on Monday Lamborghini announced its Sant’Agata plant has closed temporarily from the 13th March to the 25th March.
Jaguar Land Rover has said it hopes to open up again on the 20th April.
