NEW DELHI -- India's Tata Motors-owned luxury carmaker Jaguar Land Rover plans to set up a manufacturing plant with the capacity to produce 300,000 vehicles in the western Slovak city of Nitra.

     The U.K.-based JLR said on Tuesday it chose Nitra over other locations in Europe, Mexico and the U.S. for being close to a strong supply chain and having good logistic infrastructure. The maker signed a letter of intent with the Slovak government for the potential development of a factory.
