India: Jaguar Land Rover has unveiled the armoured range of its Range Rover and Discovery sports utility vehicles. 'The armoured vehicles market is a niche segment and we do not want to leave it out. We are launching these vehicles in India so that we have the complete range of offering here,' said Tata Motors Head (Premier Car Division) Rohit Suri. 'We have just started exploring the market, we know there is some potential but it will be too premature to put a number on how many armoured vehicles we intend to sell in India. Globally, the armoured vehicles market is estimated to be around 15,000 units annually but in India it is at a nascent stage,' he said.
Mr Suri added that the price of armoured vehicles could vary depending on the customisation levels.
