Tradition. Innovation. PERFECTION.
It was the year 1948 when Maurice Wilks, chief designer for Rover, made virtue out of necessity, taking aluminium parts from the British army, an indestructible engine and a ladder frame to build the first all-wheel Rover: The very first Land Rover had been born. Its versatility was unmatched from the very beginning, its robustness was the stuff of myth, and the civil, humanitarian and military expeditions of the Land Rover to the remotest corners of the Earth made it a legend. In short: Land Rover wrote history from the outset. And famous Land Rover drivers, such as Sir Winston Churchill, King Edward VIII and Queen Elizabeth II, added there own contributions to its worthy chronicle. To this day, Land Rover remains the epitome of stylish status and indestructible quality. Facts attested to by history itself: more than 70 percent of the Land Rovers produced since 1948 are still regularly out on our roads and fields.
The Land Rover – and today the DEFENDER – was supplemented by the luxurious RANGE ROVER in 1970, the world’s first sports utility vehicle with permanent 4-wheel drive. This was followed by bestsellers including the versatile DISCOVERY, the compact FREELANDER and the sporty RANGE ROVER SPORT. High-tech solutions such as TERRAIN RESPONSETM are cause for even more entries in the history books. All models contain within themselves the legacy of a genuine off-road vehicle intended for use in rough terrain. Which explains why Land Rover is a particular champion of nature and the environment. Land Rover assembly is ISO 14001 certified and CO2 emissions of all models have been reduced significantly. Land Rover supports “Born Free” and other environmental protection organizations with their vehicles and know-how. Land Rover has embarked on a path to the future marked by sustainability and a natural awareness of our responsibility towards the planet and all living beings.
