Tata Motors is a part of theTata Groupmanages its share-holdingthroughTata Sons.The company was established in 1935 as a locomotivemanufacturing unit and later expanded its operations to commercial vehicle sector in 1954 after forming a joint venture withDaimler-Benz AG of Germany. Despite the success of its commercial vehicles, Tatarealized his company had to diversify and he began to look at otherproducts. Based onconsumerdemand, he decided that building a smallcar would be the most practical new venture. So in 1998 it launchedTataIndica,India's first fully indigenous passenger car. Designed to beinexpensive and simple to build and maintain, the Indica became aninstant hit in the Indian market. It was also exported to Europe namely the UK and Italy. Since then it has never looked back. In 2004 itacquired Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle and in late 2005 it acquired21% AragoneseHispano Carroceragiving it controlling rights of the company. It has formed a Joint Venture withMarcopoloof Brazil andintroduced low-floor buses in the Indian Market. Recently it hadacquired British Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) business, which also includesDaimler and Lanchester brand names.
 After years of dominating the commercial vehicle market in India, TataMotors entered the passenger vehicle market in 1991 by launching theTata Sierra,a multi utility vehicle. After the launch of three more vehicles,Tata Estate(1992, astationwagondesign based on the earlier 'TataMobile' (1989), a light commercial vehicle),Tata Sumo(LCV, 1994)and Tata Safari (1998, India's first sports utility vehicle). Tata launchedtheIndicain 1998, the first fully indigenous passenger car of India.Though the car was initially panned by auto-analysts, the car's excellentfuel economy, powerful engine and aggressive marketing strategy madeit one of the best selling cars in the history of the Indian automobileindustry. A newer version of the car, named Indica V2, was a majorimprovement over the previous version and quickly became a mass-favourite. A  badge engineered version of the car was sold in the UnitedKingdom as the Rover CityRover, which was a failure and was declaredthe worst car ever driven on BBC Top Gear show 
.Tata Motors alsosuccessfully exported large quantities of the car to South Africa.Thesuccess of Indica in many ways marked the rise of Tata Motors.
