Tata Motors is charting out an aggressive network expansion for Land Rover in India over the next one year, besides exploring possibilities for bringing Jaguar to the country.
“Land Rover is already present in India in Mumbai in a small way. What we understand from our colleagues in Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) that they are looking at expanding Land Rover’s footprint in the Indian market in a fairly aggressive manner in the near future,” Tata Motors President Passenger Cars Rajiv Dube told reporters here.
Tata Motors had acquired Britain’s premium auto brands Jaguar and Land Rover earlier this year for over 2 billion dollars. “Within the next one year, you could possibly see their footprint expanding,” he added.
Recently, Land Rover had opened a dealership in Gurgaon also, but that is not a pan India expansion, Dube said. Asked by when the Jaguar brand would be brought to India, he said: “JLR has made a statement, they are looking at the Indian market.”
