Production of Disco5 to move to Slovakia

Yep, D5 will only be made in the new factory in Slovakia soon, it is allegedly to make room to build more Range Rovers at Solihull. How long before other models are migrated so that they can be built in the EU?

Sales of Disco5 have been awful in Europe only sold 640 in a month. Just bought a RRS 06 MY HSE TDV6 136,000 miles, to be a second car to my gorgeous 65 plate Volvo XC60 D5 R-Design lux nav

As far as I can see in the UK sales of D5 aren’t many more than Velars. Has Jerry MacGovern lost his design flare/ touch? Or are the cars no longer the value for money that they used to be? 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Scotland 2012 Range Rover Sport SDV6 HSE Santorini Black

Value for money one issue. Take the difference in price and spec alone between my 2012my sdv6 hse and the latest variant.

Sheer greed another. In the old days, rr, rrs, disco, evoque freelander and defender made total sense, covered many levels of affordability and also purpose. Now, well what the Censored is the point of a discovery sport or a velar ?

Love my rrs but this is my last JLR product.
