The Jaguar luxury vehicle brand can be traced to Swallow Sidecar Company, a motorcycle sidecar builder, owned by S. S. Cars Limited. The business was later expanded with Standard Motor Co. to build cars and some of the models carried the name Jaguar. The first was SS Jaguar 100, released in 1935. S. S. Cars was renamed Jaguar Cars after World War II. Jaguar has been owned by other manufacturers (including Ford) before it was acquired by Tata Motors of India. Jaguar is now under Jaguar Land Rover, a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Motors, with headquarters in Whitley, Coventry, England. The brand has become synonymous with traditional English elegance, sports performance, and luxury.
