Range Rover CKD "Completely Knocked Down" - assembly abroad
 
Land-Rover and Range Rover were assembled at no less than 23 countries abroad of UK in 1980.
Not all of countries where Land-Rover were assembeled also assembled the Range Rover from CKD "Completely Knocked Down" kits.
 
The reason for CKD assembly were due to bilateral agreements, import taxations, labor cost, local political conditions and due to repetitive strike conditions within BLMC in the 70's and 80's.
 
The CKD kits normally shipped in quantity of 6 kits.
