Just recently, Land Rover has confirmed that the production of the Discovery will be relocated to a Slovakia-based factory.

Part of the model line reshuffle will encompass upgrading the Solihull factory where the Discovery is currently being built in order to accommodate the next-generation of flagship Land Rover models. The automaker also confirms that cars such as the Land Rover Range Rover will still be built at the same site.

In spite of its commitment to Solihull, Jaguar Land Rover has issued a statement saying that possible losses of some agency employed staff in the United Kingdom might be at least a short-term result of moving the production of Land Rover Discovery away from the West Midlands plant.                

Land Rover vehicles were first built in the Solihull factory in 1948. The Discovery was first launched in 1989 and is Land Rover’s third SUV. More recent versions of the model have made it more of a road car than a conventional off-roader.
