Jaguar cars are engineered in England. As of 2014, they are assembled in England and India. Jaguar is a brand manufactured by the English company Jaguar Land Rover, a subsidiary of Tata Motors, an Indian company.
The company was founded as the Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922. After World War II, the company changed its name to Jaguar to avoid connotations with the SS, a Nazi paramilitary organization. The Ford Motor Company owned Jaguar from the late 1980s until 2007. Jaguar merged with Land Rover when Ford bought the latter in May 2000. In 2008, Tata Motors bought Jaguar from Ford.
