A Look Into the History of the Jaguar Brand

Jaguar started in Blackpool, England as the Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley that was renamed S.S. Cars Limited. In 1935, a sports saloon model (aka a sports sedan) called the SS Jaguar was released alongside the SS Jaguar 100, an open-top two-passenger sports car. How did these luxury models become the top car company that we know today?

  1. In 1945, the S.S. Cars were renamed Jaguar Cars Limited to standing out as a memorable brand.
  2. Jaguar became known for thrilling sports cars like the Jaguar XK120 and Jaguar E-TYPE and international motorsports, winning the 1951 and 1953 Le Mans 24-Hour Race.
  3. In 1965, Jaguar Cars became part of British Motor Holdings Limited and later merged with the Rover manufacturer Leyland Motor Corporation Limited, creating the British Leyland Motor Corporation.
  4. The British Leyland Motor Corporation became nationalized in 1975 due to financial difficulties, but Jaguar became its own company again in 1984.

Ford Motors purchased Jaguar in 1999 and purchased Land Rover in 2000, selling both to Tata Motors in 2008.
