The Land Land Rover nameplate was used by the Rover Company for its specific automobile design, which was named the Land Rover and first launched in 1948. The company then designed and developed various four-wheel-drive cars including Defensive Player, Development, Freelander, Variety Rover, Variety Rover Game and Variety Rover Evoque. Land Rover car models are currently produced at the company's Halewood and Solihull production plants.

In July 2008, Tata Motors acquired Land Rover and Jaguar.

It is equipped with ERAD technology which will enable the car to run on electric power at speeds below 32kmph. In 2013, Land Rover unveiled an All-Terrain Electric Defender at the Geneva Show.
