Land Rover To Assemble FreeLander 2 In India To Cut-Down Import Duties


Land Rover is a well known brand famous for its top-notch and high-end luxurious SUV’s which apart from offering power, deliver quality as well to its buyers. Our very own Indian brand Tata, bagged the Land Rover and Jaguar for a few billion dollars, which is seen as a great achievement for an Indian manufacturer.

We are aware of the fact that all those cars which are imported from other countries come with a higher price tag owing to the duties the companies pay in the procedure, while the cars which are manufactured in India are competitively priced.

Every manufacturer focuses on extracting maximum profits either by selling their products at higher prices or by manufacturing them nearby the existing marketplace and believing in the same ideology Land Rover is all set to get assembled in India only.

Free Lander 2

The brand is planning to assemble some of the variants in our country since they incur a lot of import costs.Sources say that Land Rover plans to assemble the FreeLander 2 which is currently the lowest-priced model in the whole line-up from the company and comes with a price tag of Rs 33.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Other than Freelander the company sells Discovery 4 and Range Rover which will not be assembled here for the timing and will get imported. Currently the FreeLander 2 is being imported with cumulative duties of nearly 110 percent and with the new plans the company promises to bring down the duties to a surprising 50 percent,eventually cutting down its cost to a few lakh of INR.

This new plan certainly needs an enormous investment get started and Tata Motors we guess, is definitely busy working on it and figuring out the feasible routes to get through and we hope the brand succeeds in what it is aiming and does bring in some competition.
