Jaguar-Land Rover cuts platforms to pare costs

MUMBAI: Tata Motors’ Jaguar and Land Rover (JLR) business will make more models on fewer platforms as it prunes cost and simplify manufacturing lines.

An automobile platform is a shared set of components common to a number of different automobiles. Fewer platforms increases flexibility and offers greater use of a plant. It also reduces product development time through a fixed set of engineered components.

The Mumbai-headquartered Tata group flagship will have four platforms instead of nine in the next 2-3 years, thanks to new technology.
