Only because of a $3.5B write off that is carried forward with accounting. JLR is still consolidating while Tata is seeking partners.JLR are back in profit and i stand by what i wrote
The Defender was "old" and not invested in because they were part of the now defunct Rover Group. LR barely survived. The D5 might be another 'best product' that sold ..... 450 in the US last month while Jeep sold 24K.
Range Rover left the US and returned in 1987. The LR dealership was a small building that is now nondescript used cars. What resurrected them? The D1 which was basically a new body on a Defender. The path was there for Defender improvements, they just couldn't afford them.
