Jaguar is a premier manufacturer of luxury sedans, sports cars and performance SUVs offering unparalleled design and tremendous performance. The company's vision throughout its storied history has been simple: To produce beautiful, fast cars that are desired the world over. Jaguar strives to provide a world class ownership experience to every owner. Today's Jaguar line up consists of the Jaguar XE and XF sports sedans, the XJ luxury sedan, the two-seat F-TYPE sports car and the brand's first-ever SUV, the F-PACE. Jaguar designs, engineers and manufactures exclusively in the United Kingdom, at the Solihull and Castle Bromwich manufacturing plants, both in the British Midlands. Jaguar is fully engaged with sustainability initiatives and social concerns with continuous involvement in environmental and community programs.
The origins of Jaguar can be traced back to the Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922. The legendary XK120 sports car made its debut in 1948 and Jaguar’s motorsport pedigree was enhanced by the successes of the C-Type and D-Type at multiple Le Mans 24-Hour Races during the 1950s. In 1961 the Company launched one of the most iconic sports cars of all time, the Jaguar E-Type, recognised as one of the most beautiful cars ever produced, whilst the renowned Jaguar XJ saloon made its first appearance in 1968.
Jaguar Land Rover
Jaguar Land Rover is the UK’s largest automotive manufacturing business, built around two iconic British car brands: Land Rover, the world’s leading manufacturer of premium all-terrain vehicles and Jaguar, one of the world’s premier luxury sports saloon and sports car marques.
Jaguar Land Rover is committed to the UK with product design, development and manufacturing facilities. The Company also has an overseas manufacturing plant located in China and another under construction in Brazil. Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles are sold in 170 countries via a network of 19 national sales companies, and 2,640 franchised dealers.
All of our cars are engineered and designed in Britain and while we have ambitious plans for global growth, the heart of the business remains in the UK. We have invested billions of pounds in our state-of-the-art production, research and development facilities. In fact, Jaguar Land Rover is the biggest UK investor in R&D in the manufacturing sector – ahead of British Aerospace and Rolls-Royce – and in the global top 100 for R&D spend. This investment, along with our on-going support of local communities and encouragement to get young people to seek jobs in engineering has led to Jaguar Land Rover winning the Responsible Business of the Year Award – an accolade we take great pride in achieving.
