Jaguar Land Rover, Tata Motors' British luxury brand which the company acquired in 2008 has been a major factor in the success of the Indian automobile giant. With the help of the British brand, Tata Motors has sailed past the group leader till 2010 - Tata Steel.
Tata Motors net profit is also more than three times larger than the group's other major business unit, Tata Cosultancy Services. It is a known fact that Tata Group's chairman Ratan Tata who is expected to step down this year has been so passionate about its automobile business.
Tata Motors recorded a profit of Rs 13,517 crore over the past three years, a stunning five-fold increase from its 2010 net profit of Rs 2,571 crore. A market analyst was quoted as saying: "Tata Motors will grow upwards of 13-15% in revenue in the next 2-3 years. The launch of the F-type Jaguar products and new geographies will help JLR drive up volumes."
