Jaguar appoints new manufacturing chief to transform plants for electric future
Britain`s biggest carmaker Jaguar Land Rover (JLR)
JLR operates three factories in its home market but is building its first electric car, the I-PACE, in Austria.
The Indian-owned automaker`s Chief Executive Ralf Speth told Reuters earlier this year he is waiting for more information on trading conditions after Brexit before he decides whether to make electric cars in Britain.
On Thursday, he said Executive Director for Manufacturing Wolfgang Stadler is retiring from the business, to be replaced by Director of Quality and Automotive Safety Grant McPherson from July 1.
"He will oversee the ongoing investment into our UK and global manufacturing, transforming our plants to enable Jaguar Land Rover`s exciting electrified future," Speth said in a statement.
