Jaguar Land Rover engineers tested a self-driving prototype Jaguar I-pace on the streets of Dubai in October 2019, demonstrating the company’s latest autonomous driving research technologies and giving a glimpse into the future. And now the company, which shares similar goals to Dubai’s government with regards to mobility and sustainability, has begun construction on a new parts distribution centre, scheduled to be operational during the first quarter of 2021.
Being built in Jebel Ali Freezone (Jafza) to serve discerning customers across the Middle East and North Africa, this new state-of-the-art 19,000m2 facility will allow Jaguar Land Rover to meet projected growth in demand for parts and accessories over the next decade and beyond.
“This is a key element of our regional expansion plans as we recognise the importance of offering first-class aftersales service, an essential ingredient of which is rapid parts supply. The new facility, with its increased storage capacity, ensures that our retail partners, and subsequently our customers, will always receive a fast and efficient response, whatever model they own.”Bruce Robertson, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover MENA
