Who Owns Jaguar?

Who owns Jaguar? Jaguar used to – but now it’s the Indian automaker Tata Motors. Tata Motors has owned the Jaguar and Land Rover brand since 2008. At Hornburg Jaguar Los Angeles, we think Tata Motors’ acquisition has only improved upon this legendary British automotive mark. After all, the Jaguar F-PACE was released in 2016; the Jaguar E-PACE was released in 2017; and the innovative plug-in Jaguar I-PACE was recently released in 2018.

So while Jaguar dipped in and out of independence over the 20th century, Ford eventually bought Jaguar. And in 2008, Ford sold Jaguar to Tata Motors. This acquisition has been nothing short of successful. At Hornburg Jaguar Los Angeles we’re proud to be part of the larger Jaguar Land Rover family.

Jaguar Cars in Movies

The Jaguar E-TYPE is perhaps the most iconic Jaguar vehicle in cinema history. Known as the Jaguar XKE in the North American market, the Jaguar E-TYPE is a sporty two-door roadster, featuring prominently in movies such as 1961’s The Italian Job and 1997’s Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.

And although the Jaguar E-TYPE appears in multiple classic films, Los Angeles film buffs shouldn’t forget about the 1958 Jaguar Special, as seen in the classic film Roadracers. The Jaguar Special came with a simple folding roof – but Pasadena moviegoers will see the convertible configuration in 1958’s Roadracers.

Jaguar Logo and Symbol Information

Whether you’re en route to your favorite Los Angeles art gallery or you’re headed to your favorite tennis court, you’ve likely seen the iconic Jaguar hood ornament around town. At Hornburg Jaguar Los Angeles we’re happy to inform you that the leaping Jaguar hood ornament was first introduced on Jaguar vehicles in 1945. The iconic Jaguar logo was meant to symbolize the ambition to leap forward.

Although the hood ornament was designed in the first half of the 20th century, the central theme – that is, of automotive ambition – stays the same. While you won’t find the classic hood ornament on new Jaguar vehicles, you’ll still find an iconic British Jaguar badge on the grille.

Jaguar XE vs. Cheetah

While the Jaguar XE is the cheapest model in the Jaguar luxury car lineup, it certainly isn’t cheap with luxury features. That’s why the Jaguar XE stacks so favorably against the animal kingdom – especially the cheetah.

For example, the Jaguar XE can seat five passengers. The cheetah can only seat one – with a saddle. Jaguar XE offers luxury connectivity options. The cheetah offers no entertainment features.

But the Jaguar XE offers more than just luxury: it delivers impressive performance. The Jaguar XE can reach up to 120 MPH on Los Angeles roads. The fastest clocked time of a cheetah is a mere 61 MPH.

It’s no wonder so many drivers lease or finance their next Jaguar XE from us rather than leasing or financing a cheetah: the Jaguar XE beats the competition.
