Jaguar Land Rover and Chery said they will move ahead with completion of a manufacturing plant in Changshu, near Shanghai, in 2014 as part of a $160 million investment that will include a research-and-development center and engine production facility.
The name of the new joint venture company will be Chery Jaguar Land Rover Automotive Co.
