When was Land Rover Founded?

2019-Land-Rover-Range-Rover

Land Rover provides rugged luxury that’s set the standard for sport utility vehicles since their inception. When was Land Rover founded? Borne of post-war British ingenuity, here’s how Land Rover started, and why you should see the latest models at Land Rover Englewood.

The Birth of Land Rover

Maurice Wilks, an automotive and aeronautical engineer from Hampshire, England, was only 18 years old when he started his automotive career in 1922. In 1930 he began with the Rover Company as a chief engineer. Two years later his older brother Spencer would become managing director of the company. They decided that Rover would focus on high-quality cars. But duty called, and at the beginning of World War II they worked on gas turbine engines for aircraft.

On his farm in Anglesey, Maurice had an old army surplus jeep he used for farm work. He and Spencer tinkered with with it to see if they could make a 4-wheel-drive vehicle for farmers. They called it a Land Rover.

When was Land Rover founded? In 1947 the brothers introduced the prototype Land Rover, built on a jeep chassis. A few months later, the Rover Company ordered 50 models for evaluation. The Land Rover made its public debut at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show. A year later, the Wilks’ gas turbine engine research paid off, and they introduced the first gas turbine powered car.
