Jaguar Land Rover has confirmed that it is to begin selling its range of cars in the Indian market later this year.
The models will be imported into the India by JLR’s parent company Tata Motors under a new division called the Premier Car Division.
The first JLR showroom will be at Ceejay House in Worli, Mumbai, in June this year.
Rohit Suri has been appointed to head the new organisation and is leading plans to develop a dealer network through 2009 and 2010.
Ravi Kant, managing director of Tata Motors, said: "This is a natural move for both businesses and will allow Jaguar and Land Rover to establish a strong and deserved presence in India."
