Land Rover is a car brand that specialises in four-wheel-drive vehicles, owned by British multinational car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover, which has been owned by India's Tata Motors since 2008. The Land Rover is regarded as a British icon, and was granted a Royal Warrant by King George VI in 1951.
Jaguar Land Rover earned £2.6 billion (about $4.1 billion) in pre-tax profits in the year ended March 31, with a EBITDA margin of 18.9%. But Jaguar Land Rover sold just 462,209 vehicles over that period, far behind luxury leader BMW's 1.8 million sales in 2014. Big investments will be needed to close that gap.
Jaguar Land Rover Automotive is a public limited company incorporated under the laws of England and Wales (Company No. 06477691). The immediate parent of Jaguar Land Rover Automotive PLC is TML Holdings Pte. Ltd., Singapore and the ultimate parent undertaking and controlling party is Tata Motors Limited of India.
Tata Motors is now in the luxury car and truck business—finally—with a signed agreement to buy the Ford Motor Company’s Jaguar and Land Rover brands for $2.3 billion. The deal is expected to close by the end of the second quarter after some final leaps through legal hoops.
When BMW bought the Rover group in 1994, they split Land Rover from Rover, then sold Land Rover to Ford in 2000. They remained different companies until Ford bought Range Rover in 2006. Now they’re both part of Jaguar Land Rover, which is owned by Tata motors, maker of the world’s cheapest car.
It turns out that, as part of the Ford-Tata deal, Tata ended up owning not only the Jaguar and Land Rover brands, but also Daimler, Rover and Lanchester. Someone is going to have to re-do that chart. The story of how the names have transfered is kind of hilarious and featured under the jump. It also may have played into the mysterious $300 million that evaporated from the big deal this week.
