Jaguar Cars is a brand of the British transnational automaker Jaguar Land Rover. Headquarters is located in the suburbs of Coventry, West Midlands. Since 2008, belongs to the Indian Tata Motors.
The company was founded in 1922, first as the Swallow Sidecar Company and produced motorized carts. After World War II, the name was changed to “Jaguar” to avoid the unfavorable combination of “SS”. In 1966, it merged with the British Motor Corporation, which became known as British Motor Holdings (BMH), in 1968 it merged with the Layland Motor Corporation and was renamed British Leyland. In 1975 the company was nationalized.
The company was separated from British Leyland and went to the London Stock Exchange in 1984 and until 1990 its shares were part of the FTSE 100 index until the automaker was acquired by Ford. Recently, Jaguar manufactures cars for the Prime Minister of Great Britain, the latter was given the XJ model in May 2010, as well as for Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles. Since 1987, the cars were developed at the Jaguar Land Rover Engineering Center at the Utley Coventry plant and the Gaydon Center in Warwickshire. Produced at the Castle Bromwich assembly plant in Birmingham, it is expected that part of the production will begin in Solihull.
In September 2013, plans were announced to open an R & D center at Warwick University in Coventry, worth £ 100 million to create a new generation of automotive technology. The automaker said that about 1,000 scientists and engineers will work on this and that the design will begin in 2014.
