  2. 2. JAGUAR Company Profile
  3. 3. Company Private limited company Industry Automotive Founded 11 September 1922 (as Swallow Sidecar Company) Founder(s) Sir William Lyons and William Walmsley Headquarters Whitley, Coventry, United Kingdom Key people Ratan Tata (Chairman) Dr Ralf Speth (CEO) Adrian Hallmark (Global Brand Director) Products Luxury Cars Employees 10,000 Parent Jaguar Land Rover Automotive PLC Website www.jaguar.com
  4. 4. Company Overview Jaguar Land Rover Automotive PLCis a British multinational automotive company headquartered in Whitley, Coventry, United Kingdom. Company was founded in 1922 by two motorcycle enthusiasts, William Lyons and William Walmsley leading to SS Cars Ltd. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Indian Tata Motors group, itself a subsidiary of the Tata Group. Its principal activity is the development, manufacture and sale of vehicles bearing Jaguar and Land Rover, including Range Rover, marques. In 1935 the SS Jaguar name first appeared on a 2.5-litre saloon,[8] sports models of which were the SS 90 and SS 100.Cash was short after World War II, and Jaguar sold the plant and premises of Motor Panels, a pressed steel body manufacturing company they had acquired in the late 1930s when growth prospects seemed more secure. The buyer was Rubery Owen. Nevertheless, Jaguar achieved relative commercial success with their early post war models; times were also tough for other Coventry-based auto-makers and the company was able to buy from John Black's Standard Motor Company the plant where Standard had built the six- cylinder engines it had been supplying to Jaguar. (SS and Jaguar made 3.5-litre, 125 hp Mk IVdrop headcoupé) Jaguar made its name by Producing a series of eye- Catching sports cars, such as the XK 120 of 1949, developed into XK 140 and XK 150, and the E Type of 1961. These were all Successful and embodied Lyons' mantra of "value for money". They were successful in international motorsport, a path followed in the 1950s to prove the engineering integrity of the company's products. The core of Bill Lyons' success following WWII was the twin-cam straight six engine, a design conceived pre-war and realized while design staff at the Coventry plant were dividing their time between fire-watching (Coventry being a prime target of German bombers) and designing the new power plant.
  5. 5. Product Portfolio The 2012 model year XK builds on the car's award-winning reputation as a high- performance sporting GT. A new range- topping variant, the XKR-S, creates a new performance flagship for Jaguar by becoming its most powerful production car ever, capable of 186mph and 0-60mph in 4.2 seconds. True Jaguar sports saloon. For the flagship Jaguar XJ luxury saloon, a suite of enhancements to the interior and options list includes a new Rear Seat Comfort package, which incorporates electric recline, lumbar adjustment and massage functions to reinforce the ultimate executive limousine experience. These three cars are the result of a design and technology revolution at Jaguar, led by award-winning Design Director Ian Callum, the architect of the company's future success: The 2012 Jaguar XJ • Pioneering lightweight aluminum construction delivers superior agility and economy • Bold, beautiful styling re-energises the Jaguar design language. • The existing range of powerful, efficient power plants is supplemented by Jaguar's 3.0-litre petrol V6 engine (market specific). • Available in both standard and long-wheelbase versions, the latter providing evens more luxurious accommodation for passengers.
  6. 6. The original XJ was the last car designed by Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons and the latest car to wear the nameplate is as innovative, beautiful and desirable as its famous forebear. Revolutionary, not evolutionary, the XJ is truly a product of the 21st century and is the clearest indication yet of the singular sense of purpose behind Design Director Ian Callum's vision for the future of Jaguar. The weight saved by the use of aluminum – an average of 150kg compared to its rivals – also has benefits for performance and agility and is complemented by the most advanced, powerful and efficient Jaguar powertrains ever. The choice of engines has been enlarged for the 2012 range with the fitment of a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine (market specific). All engines are coupled to a shift-by-wire, six-speed automatic transmission controlled by the Jaguar Drive Selector or §steering wheel-mounted paddles. Vision

  11. 11. Competitive Advantage Jaguar and Land Rover are both, individually, very special brands. Each has a proud heritage well known to car enthusiasts. On a very basic level, a potential purchaser walking into a showroom will want to talk to someone who knows at least as much as she does about the cars – preferably more. There’s a lot to know, and product cycles move increasingly swiftly. Beyond product knowledge however, dealership staff also have to embody the brand in order to deliver great customer experiences. A significant degree of responsibility for protecting a brand’s prestige falls on the shoulders of those with frontline customer contact. These brand experiences are seen as fundamental to competitive advantage within Jaguar Land Rover. The quality of people in the dealership network is therefore key to the company’s future success. At the same time, training resources are finite. If Jaguar Land Rover did all the dealer training the team would like to do, and delivered it by conventional means, the sum total would be some 300,000 training days! The team’s challenge is to get ever nearer to delivering a comparable amount of training value using the resources.

  13. 13. Company Overview Mercedes-Benz (German pronunciation): is a multinational division of the German manufacturer Daimler AG, and the brand is used for luxury automobiles, buses, coaches, and trucks. Mercedes-Benz is headquartered in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The name first appeared in 1926 under Daimler-Benz but traces its origins to Daimler's 1901 Mercedes and to Karl Benz's 1886 Benz Patent Motorwagen, widely regarded as the first automobile. Established in 1871, Benz & Cie. was the most important of several companies founded by Karl Benz. The Benz patent motor wagon was ahead of its times; by 1886, Benz had the first four-stroke engine. Karl Benz is credited as the inventor of the first "true" automobile since Daimler’s vehicle was a horse carriage adapted with an engine, whereas the 1886 Benz automobile had a chassis designed from scratch. Daimler Motoren Gesellschaft-(DMG) was founded by Gottlieb Daimler and his partner Wilhelm May Bach in 1890. Daimler died in 1900 and may Bach left DMG in 1907. By then, Benz & Cie. and DMG were rivals. In 1924, owing to economic necessity after World War I, they entered into an "Agreement of Mutual Interest" valid until the year 2000. This initial agreement still allowed each company to manufacture and sell their products under their original brand names. After the official merger in June 28, 1926, the firm became known as Daimler-Benz.

  16. 16. Vision The automotive world has changed enormously since the days of Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz.

  18. 18. Swot Analysis Strength SWOT Analysis To begin with, I will look for the main strength that the company had. As we know, Mercedes-Benz has been a well-known business for a very long time; therefore, the strengths would be a lot than I expected. Opportunities For Mercedes-Benz * Joint venture. * Improving safety, comfort, and sustainable mobility.* providing fascinated vehicles for customers by the supportive of DaimlerChrysler Group * Professional sport sponsorship before we go through the opportunities of the business, we have to take seriously on the threats at first. Threats For Mercedes * A tax increase for importing vehicles. * Less educated employees in China, but also very expensive to hire employees in Europe. * Competitors that the Mercedes Company had Weakness It is very common that every company has its own weaknesses. As Mercedes Company is a large company, therefore it's quite obvious the business has the deficiency of communication in the organizations.
  19. 19. Competitive Advantage Mercedes-Benz is one of the most, if not the most, celebrated cars in the history of luxury vehicles. We know it’s because of careful crafting of and welding of Mercedes Parts and the exclusively manufactured Mercedes Accessories. Here are some facts that might help you understand why the Mercedes Benz has always and will always be loved. Mercedes Benz employs at least one inspector to every 11 workers. They are paid to criticize every single vehicle to death before making it available to the buying public. Every single Mercedes Benz is welded in 10,000 places. This makes annoyances such as rattles, squeaks, and loose bolts virtually inexistent. The Benz is famed for its high-speed cruise comfort abilities as well as its vibration free handling. Before engines are even mounted onto the cars, one specific test is run multiple times before processing. During these routine checks, the engine oils are completely flushed out about sixty times to rid the vehicle of any unwanted debris or dirt. The Mercedes-Benz has a steering system that carries tiny built-in shock absorbers to keep it handling at its very best. After welding occurs, all the vital body parts are ground down by hand. After this they are packed with pewter and ground down once more for the utmost safety. Once this is complete a hand polishing is done as well to increase its visibility and class.
