THE JAGUAR F-PACE TOUR AT SOLIHULL
Go behind the scenes of Solihull’s stunning new state-of-the-art production facility and witness what it takes to bring to life some of the most technologically advanced cars in the world. A £1.5 billion investment has transformed Lode Lane into one of the most advanced car manufacturing facilities in the world. The all-new Aluminium- intensive architecture body shop and final assembly cover an area equivalent to 22 football pitches.
Jaguar’s new first in class Aluminium-intensive monocoque is revolutionizing vehicle dynamics, refinement and ride quality. At Lode Lane, you can watch its perfectly contoured body take shape – complete with those signature rear haunches.
It takes 627 hi-tech robots working in perfect unison to construct the F-PACE’s unique lightweight body. And they achieve it in a matter of seconds, using state-of-the-art cameras to locate the precise positions. You’ll have a front-row view, as Jaguar’s dedicated cybernetic army shape, rivet and bond, before our skilled craftsmen customise and finish each unique Jaguar to order.
DESIGN YOUR OWN
Thinking of buying a Jaguar? The Jaguar Tour offers the chance to let your imagination loose on hundreds of bespoke elements.
