Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover is planning to cut jobs as it scales back production at some of its United Kingdom sites amid what it termed as "headwinds" impacting the automotive industry.

"On Monday [16 April 2018] we will be cascading our 18/19 production plans for the next fiscal year to our workforce".

"We are however continuing to recruit large numbers of highly skilled engineers, graduates and apprentices as we over-proportionally invest in new products and technologies".

While the company did not release a figure, the United Kingdom media, including Reuters, reported that up to 1,000 jobs would be shed and production would be cut at its Solihuall and Castle Bromwich plants. "Following a review of planned volumes, we are planning to make some temporary adjustments to the production schedule at Halewood in Q2".
