Great Britain

The concentration within the British automobile industry is advancing. The Nuffield group was formed in the twenties, which initially included Morris, Wolseley and MG. In 1938 they took over the Riley. In 1952 the Nuffield group united with Austin, then the largest British car brand, and the British Motor Corporation (BMC) was formed. The merger of this group with the Jaguar Daimler Group in 1967 saw the formation of British Motor Holdings. The Leyland Group, a major truck manufacturer that owns the Standard Triumph, took over the BMH. At the same time Rover-Alvis had been incorporated. The new big company, which includes all of these brands is called British Leyland Motor Corporation. British Leyland is after the VW the second largest car manufacturer in Europe.

Problematyczny, terenowy model Gipsy nigdy nie zagroził pozycji Land Rovera na rynku. Leyland przejął nie tylko Austina, ale także Rovera, więc produkcja Gipsy została wstrzymana.
