Jaguar Land Rover will close its plant in Solihull, England, for two weeks after the company reported a almost 50 percent fall in sales to China as import duties and a trade war with the USA hurt demand.

The company, which builds 500,000 Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Jaguars in the United Kingdom every year and employs 40,000 people, said that the plant would close this month.
