Jaguar considers electric car production


Jaguar Land Rover could create thousands of new jobs after confirming that it is looking to making electric vehicles in the UK.

Such a move could lead to the Gaydon-based company creating 10,000 new jobs, adding to the 40,000 people it already employs in the UK.

Chief executive Ralf Speth told an industry meeting that the company would like to build the electric vehicles in the West Midlands.

The plan fits in well with a pledge by the government this week to invest £390m in greener technologies.
