The move is likely to result in Britain's biggest auto maker cutting agency staff at the plant near Birmingham as part of a manufacturing shake-up which is due to take effect from early next year as the European site at Nitra comes on line.

"The potential losses of some agency employed staff in the United Kingdom is a tough one but forms part of our long-term manufacturing strategy as we transform our business globally", JLR said in a statement.

Jaguar Land Rover has announced an overhaul of its United Kingdom manufacturing operations, revealing plans for a new family of Range Rover models, and the moving of Discovery production to JLR's new facility in Nitra, Slovakia.

Jaguar Land Rover is set to cut more jobs in Britain as it moves all production of its Discovery SUV to lower-cost Slovakia before building its new Range Rover at an English factory.

The company said the shock switch to the eastern European country, which will see hundreds of workers lose their jobs, will take place early next year.

Jaguar Land Rover has said all new models will be electrified from 2020, though a spokesman wouldn't confirm whether the Range Rover models to be produced at Solihull will be made in all-electric versions.

The group saw pre-tax profit slump to £364million in the three months to March 31, down from £676million in the same period previous year.

The company has also blamed Brexit for hitting demand in Europe's second-largest autos market, where demand fell 6 percent past year, a source told Reuters in April.

Poundworld future in the balance after buyer pulls out
Other bidders are queuing up however with founder Chris Edwards rumoured to be considering re-acquiring the 355-store chain. Poundworld is the latest retailer to feel the impact of the high street woes, and on the brink of administration.

After its makeover, the plant will produce the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models. The E-Pace is also being built in China.

Diesel sales have been falling in the wake of additional surcharges and changes to VED introduced by the Government last April.

The opening of the Nitra plant was originally meant to take pressure off JLR's United Kingdom factories, sharing Discovery production with the Solihull plant. The biggest plant in the company, it now employs 9,000 people. While some agency-employed plant workers may lose their jobs, the decision to build electric cars at Solihull marks a major commitment to United Kingdom manufacturing amid uncertainty over Brexit.
