Touring the Land Rover Factory

Land Rover, the storied British off-road vehicle whose rich clientele rarely take it off road, was acquired by Tata Motors Ltd. nearly five years ago. Little, however, has changed in the manufacturing of the SUVs that still forge rivers in the African bush and traffic on the 405 in Los Angeles. Bloomberg embarked on a photo safari through the company's Jaguar Land Rover Plc plant in Solihull, U.K., in late July.
