Land Rover and Jaguar sold

5 posts in this topic

Saw it on noon news that Tata of India bougfht both Jag and LR.

I wonder what the 2007 world-wide sales totals for Jag + LR were? For the US it was only about 65k total.

Not true. Tata is still in negotiations with Ford, and the deal could still fall apart. Tata has just been selected as the most promising bidder, a position Ford was in when Daewoo's assets were being auctioned off.

Tata is also, apparently, preferred by Jaguar's union.

Maybe I don't know enough about them, but I question Tata's size and ability to handle an expansion of this type. Survival in the luxury game requires a strong commitment to top-flight engineering and quality control, something that Tata's products have been faulted for in the past (at least by European media).

Hopefully it won't be like when Studebaker "took over" Packard, and ended up dragging down the stronger company in their financial wake.
