Although no longer being made, Rover cars proved highly popular right up until the company shut down in 2005. In the early 2000s annual sales were hovering around the 150,000 mark, with 144,000 new registrations in 2003. As of 2016, there were 159,000 Rovers cars on the Road in the UK.
Rover began life right at the start of 1900s. In 1904, Rover was founded and the company traded under this name with massive year-on-year growth. In 1967 Rover was sold to Leyland Motor Corporation after it had become a huge giant in global car sales.
The British manufacturer’s early automotive focus was on two seater designs. 1901 saw the company begin production on their first car of this type, the Rover Eight. Later in 1914 they introduced the Twelve Clegg, another two seater open tourer. However, while the company had a high rate of production, especially for an automotive manufacturer at that time, business was not exactly booming in the early 1900s. The five years in between 1923 and 1928 marked a period of particular financial strife for Rover as the capital value of the company fell by 60%.
Rover turned to the production of small cars to get themselves out of the predicament. The introduction of the Rover 10 and the Rover 25 helped to bring some financial stability, netting the company considerable profits in 1929 and 1930. It was not until some time later that the company would discover its golden age. The launch of the first Land Rover in the 1950s put the company on the automotive map in a big way. The car proved to be the company’s biggest seller for three consecutive decades.
In 1965 Rover bought the Alvis company and began production on their first V8-powered supercar, the P6BS. Entering the 1970s it was the launch of the Range Rover that continued this pattern of success, proving hugely popular across the globe.
By this time Rover was had become part of Leyland Motor Corporation and from here their existence as an independent car brand began to diminish. The most significant nail in the coffin for the British manufacturer in this regard came in 1975. Following the Ryder Report that year, Land Rover split from the company and by 1978 Rover was an entirely separate entity operating within British Leyland. In 1994 the company was sold to BMW.
The Rover brand lives on today as the Land Rover under the terms of purchase of the name by Ford in 2006.
