Jaguar, a brand of Jaguar Land Rover, is a British luxury carmaker that is, currently, owned by the Indian auto giant - Tata Motors. The company’s headquarters are situated in Whitley, Coventry, England.
In 1922, the company was founded as ‘Swallow Sidecar Company’, which was originally making motorcycle sidecars. The name was changed to ‘Jaguar’ after World War II.
Jaguar cars today are designed and developed at JLR's engineering centres at the Whitley plant in Coventry and at their Gaydon site in Warwickshire. The vehicles are manufactured at the company's Castle Bromwich assembly plant in Birmingham and in Solihull plant.
Tata Motors, the home-grown automaker acquired Jaguar and Land Rover from Ford in 2008. In the same year, the British maker introduced its first car - the XF in the Indian car market, which received a positive response from car buyers. Later, the car became the company's best-selling car in the market. Following the launch of XF, various Jaguar car models were introduced in the Indian car market.
Indian Operations and Executive Managements
Tata Motors appointed Dr. Ralf Speth as the Chief Executive Officer at Jaguar Land Rover in 2010. All the JLR's operations in India are handled by Tata Motors. Mr. Rohit Suri, Vice President, Jaguar Land Rover India is responsible for all the important decisions for JLR in the country.
Jaguar is yet to assemble or locally manufacture its cars in India. All the Jaguar cars in India come as CBU (Completely Built Units). Seeing the growing demand for luxury cars, the British maker is planning to locally assemble its future cars in India. The upcoming Jaguar XE saloon is expected to be assembled in our market.
Products & Services

The British luxury carmaker is yet to launch electric or hybrid cars in our market. At the 2010 Paris Motor Show, the company showcased Jaguar C-X75- a hybrid-electric, two-seat, concept car. The concept was claimed to produce 778hp through four electric motors. In 2011, the British carmaker announced its plans to build the C-X75 in limited number, but the plans didn't work out. The company is working on alternative fuel technologies, which are likely to power the future Jaguar car models.
Founder & First car
In 1922, the Swallow Sidecar Company was founded by two motorcycle enthusiasts, William Lyons and William Walmsley. The company later entered into car production and its name was changed to SS Cars Ltd. In 1935, the SS Jaguar name was first appeared on a 2.5-litre sedan, sports models - SS 90 and SS 100. In order to avoid the unfavourable connotations of the SS initials, the name of the company was changed to ‘Jaguar’ after World War II. The company merged with the British Motor Corporation in 1966, and it was renamed as British Motor Holdings. In 1968, the BMH merged with Leyland Motor Corporation and became British Leyland. Jaguar got popular by introducing a series of successful sports cars - the Jaguar XK120 (1948-54), XK140 (154-57), XK150 (1957-61) and E-Type (1961-75).
