Range Rover Sport

Solihull is the home of Land Rover since production began on the first Land Rover in 1948. The current vehicle line up at Solihull consists of building the Land Rover  Discovery, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar and Jaguar F-Pace. The Solihull site was originally built to build aircraft engines in for WWII. After the war the premises were given to the Rover Car Company. Solihull is one of the largest Jaguar Land Rover manufacturing sites, with 300 acres and employing around 11,000 people. The site generates some of its own electricity and owns its own fire and ambulance service as well as having on site medical facilities including physiotherapy, opticians and dentist.

The Solihull plant also has Europe's largest Press (5-stage transfer press). The Solihull EBPC (Education Business partnership Centre) has approximately 4000 visitors visiting the site per year, ranging from young people, to international visitors. The EBPC operates factory tours as well as running different educational activities ranging from production challenges to programming robots with special JLR presentations given upon request.
