GAYDON, UNITED KINGDOM - March 31, 2010: Jaguar Land Rover has been named International Asian Business of the Year (UK) at the Asian Business Awards. The company was praised for its sales growth in both the domestic and overseas markets and for the investment made by the Tata Group.

The Asian Business Awards, hosted by Eastern Eye newspaper as part of the Asian Media & Marketing Group – Britain's biggest Asian publishing house – are the pre-eminent awards recognising and promoting excellence in the Asian Business community.

Simon Warr, Director of Communications and Public Affairs for Jaguar Land Rover said: "Jaguar Land Rover is delighted to be recognised as International Asian Business of the Year (UK) by the Asian Business Awards."

He added: "Jaguar and Land Rover are brands that are recognised and admired across the world. Both have marvellous heritage, but they also have now a model line up that is the strongest ever. The reception to the latest generations of Land Rover's Discovery, Range Rover and Range Rover Sport has been tremendous and there is already great excitement about a forthcoming new addition to the Range Rover family that will go on sale in 2011. Additionally, Jaguar's all-new XJ is currently making news across the globe, building on the success of the XF sedan and XK sports cars."

Jaguar Cars is one of the world's premier manufacturers of luxury sedans and sports cars, with a philosophy of creating beautiful fast cars for the modern world. Nowhere is this more evident than the all-new XJ, a car that brings a daring new spirit to automotive luxury, offering a seductive mix of striking design, breathtaking performance and engineering without compromise.

Since 1948 Land Rover has been manufacturing authentic 4x4s that represent true 'breadth of capability' across the model range. Defender, Freelander 2, Discovery 4, Range Rover Sport and Range Rover each define the worlds 4x4 sectors. The model range will be expanded later this year with the reveal of a new small Range Rover – the production version of the LRX concept and the smallest, lightest, most fuel-efficient Range Rover yet – which will go on sale in 2011
