Auto News For August 11, 2015 – Jaguar Land Rover To Build Factory In Slovakia
Here are the five must-read, must-watch auto news stories, reviews and videos for Tuesday, August 11, 2015.
INSIDE THE AUTO INDUSTRY
Jaguar Land Rover, owned by India’s Tata Motors, will build a new factory in Nitra, Slovakia. It’s possible that this will be the build location for the new Land Rover Defender. JLR chose the Slovak location over possible locations in Poland, Hungary, and Mexico.
INSIDE THE ELECTRIC CAR BUSINESS
Every single time Tesla sells a Model S, they lose $4000.
Remember when Subaru sold Legacy sedans, Legacy wagons, and Outback based on those Legacy wagons in North America? Like Audi, which now just sells the Allroad rather than the A4 Avant, Subaru skips the traditional wagon on this continent to go it alone with the Outback. And Subaru does so quite successfully. But there is still a wagon elsewhere. CAR Magazine tests the 2015 Subaru Levorg Sport Tourer.
Crashes on the Nürburgring are particularly terrifying.
