The Jaguar-Land Rover (JLR) group has announced that the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport will be assembled in India, marking the first time any Range Rover has been produced outside the UK.

The pair of flagship SUVs were previously exclusively produced at the Solihull Plant in the UK, which the company proudly designates as “the global home of Range Rover.” Moving forward, certain trims will also be assembled from knock-down kits in Pune, India.

The Pune plant, situated near the capital city of Mumbai, is owned by JLR’s parent company, Tata Motors. Since 2011, it has served as the production hub for ten other JLR products tailored for the Indian market, beginning with the Land Rover Freelander. Currently, it manufactures the Range Rover Evoque and Velar, Jaguar F-Pace, and Land Rover Discovery Sport.

Lennard Hoornik, Chief Commercial Officer at JLR, remarked, “India has experienced steady and remarkable economic growth over the past few years, and is expected to continue this trajectory in the near future.”

Speaking about the new production site, Hoornik added, “While Range Rover will now be ‘Made in India’ for clients in this market, its exemplary British design remains distinctive and will continue to define the aesthetic grace and technological sophistication that is synonymous to the Range Rover brand.”

The Indian-built Range Rover is offered in two trims: the Autobiography, featuring a 3.0-liter gasoline powertrain generating 393 hp (293 kW / 398 PS), and the HSE, equipped with a 3.0-liter diesel engine producing 346 hp (258 kW / 351 PS). Both models come in the long-wheelbase body style, with the Autobiography priced at ₹260 Lakh ($312,981) and the HSE starting from ₹236 Lakh ($284,090).

The locally-manufactured Range Rover Sport is also available with the same powertrains, but in the Dynamic SE trim. Both versions are priced at ₹140 Lakh ($168,551), presenting a considerable cost saving compared to the larger and more luxurious Range Rover LWB.

The first Indian-produced units of the two models will be showcased at the new Range Rover House India, situated in the coastal town of Alibaug. Deliveries are slated to begin on May 24 for the Range Rover and on August 16 for the Range Rover Sport. According to Geraldine Ingham, Managing Director of Range Rover, the brand’s sales in India surged by 160 percent in 2024, indicating promising prospects for the future.
