Land Rover is a British car manufacturer with its headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, UK and which specialises in off-road and four-wheel-drive vehicles. Its current owners are the Indian company Tata Motors and forms part of their Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) group. It is the second oldest four-wheel-drive car brand in the world after the US company Jeep. The Land Rover name was originally used by the Rover Company for one specific vehicle model, named simply the Land Rover, launched by Rover in 1948. Over subsequent years it developed into a marque encompassing a range of four-wheel-drive models, including the Defender, Discovery, Freelander, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover Evoque. Land Rovers are assembled in the company's Halewood and Solihull plants, with research and development taking place at JLR's Gaydon and Whitley engineering centres. These popular Land Rover models are all available from OVL at direct rates for personal and business car leasing and contract hire.
