Jaguar: Facts About This Car Brand

There are many things that you might not know about Jaguar, which is without a doubt one of the most famous car brands of all-time. Although you might be familiar with the name, there are a few things you'll want to know about it. With that said, continue to read on to learn more about Jaguar.

Early History

William Walmsley and William Lyons founded the company called Swallow Sidecar Company in 1922, but it initially started as a company that produced motorcycle sidecars. Initially, the company had nothing to do with producing automobiles. The name Jaguar first appeared in the mid-30s when the SS-2 1/2 litre sports saloon.

Swallow Sidecar Company's name changed in 1945. Shareholders of the company agreed that it was time to change the name. This is when the name officially changed to Jaguar, which was chosen in part due to it being more unique. It was also chosen because 'Jaguar' wouldn't be confused with other similarly foreign-sounding names

Post-War

After World War II, the company released its Jaguar Mark IV, which became the flagship model. It remained the flagship model for a period of four years, from 1945 to 1949. These models were based on the ones that were produced 10 years earlier, and the Jaguar Mark IV nameplate was put on a number of saloons. This was a breakthrough, but the major breakthrough was when the XK120 was released back in 1948.

The release of the XK120 was a breakthrough because at the time it was known for it's extreme speeds. In fact, when it came to serial automobiles, it was the fastest one in the world. This car was one of the first vehicles that really launched Jaguar's popularity.

Ford Acquisition

In 1990, the Ford company acquired Jaguar, but it didn't do a great job at marketing the Jaguar brand and it failed to make the brand profitable. This was one of the reasons Ford sold all of its shares to Tata Motors. Tata Motors is an automobile company that is based in India and they purchased the shares back in 2008. As of the time of this writing, Tata Motors still owns Jaguar.

Those are a few things you might not have known about Jaguar. There are a lot of other stuff you might be interested in knowing about Jaguar. If you want to learn more about the brand, then feel free to visit their official website.
