The leading Indian automaker Tata Motors will invest around 50 million pounds in its research & development base in the Midlands over the period of next two years. It is to be mentioned here that Tata Motors is the owner of UK based Jaguar & Land Rover and the move of the investment has been taken in a vote of confidence for the UK manufacturing facilities.

Meanwhile, the company has developed the Pixel city car that has been specially designed after taking into consideration the needs and requirements of the European drivers.

Tata Motors plans to recruit 100 new engineers at TMETC (Tata Motors' European Technical Centre). The new recruitments will take the total number of 340, about 40 percent higher from the existing workforce. Moreover, the carmaker will increase its focus on low-carbon technologies so that the emission level of its cars can be reduced to a very low level.

In a statement given to Daily Telegraph, Tim Leverton, head of advanced and product engineering at Tata Motors, said, "This announcement represents a further demonstration of Tata's long-term commitment to build and develop R&D facilities here in the UK".
