As demand for the Range Rover Evoque continues around the world, employees
at JLR's Halewood manufacturing plant are celebrating one year of production.
Twelve months ago, when the first vehicle rolled off the production line, the new Evoque had already generated an
exceptional market response with more than 18,000 advance orders from buyers worldwide. This interest continues today
with demand for the Evoque driving sales of almost 80,000 units in just nine months.
This early success for Evoque has had a significant positive impact on the Halewood facility. In anticipation of the
launch in 2011, the workforce was increased to more than 3,000 employees. In March this year, JLR announced it would
recruit a further 1,000 employees to help deliver the increased volume of both Evoque and Land Rover Freelander 2, which
is also manufactured at Halewood.
In just three years the workforce has trebled and the plant now employs more than 4,000 people.
