When thinking of the best off-road vehicles that are premium and reliable, Land Rovers are one of the first brands that come to mind. With its wide range of vehicles making its way in various countries around the world, it’s safe to say that Land Rover has proven itself as a timeless and iconic automotive brand.

With more than half a century after its initial introduction, the Land Rover brand has continued to innovate. And over time, it’s seen changes when it comes to ownership. So where did the brand come from, and who makes Land Rover vehicles now?

History of the Land Rover Brand

Land Rover’s history is as intricate as the vehicles that it manufactures. With cars inspired by the small transport vehicles circa World War II, the brand’s story started as early as 1947. It also involves several other iconic automotive manufacturers, which all contribute to the brand that it is now. 

Initially, Land Rover was part of the Rover Corporation, owned by British Leyland, before being split up into Rover Group. In 1994, the BMW Group acquired Rover before splitting the Land Rover brand and selling it to Ford Motor Company. For a time, this famous American brand owned Land Rover as well as luxury sports car brand Jaguar. Come 2008, Tata Group, an automotive manufacturer based in India, bought both brands and consolidated them into Jaguar Land Rover Limited in 2013. 

At present, JLR is headquartered in the United Kingdom. Since its inception, it has gone to create some of the most iconic 4x4 SUVs in the world, including the Series I, II, IIA, IIB, and III SUVs. Apart from that, Land Rover is also popular for its Defender 90 and 110 vehicles, as well as the Land Rover Discovery and Discovery Sport. While the Land Rover line consists mainly of rugged off-road vehicles, the brand also manufactures a range of high-end luxury SUVs under its Range Rover brand: the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque, and the Range Rover Velar.
