In terms of designing vehicles, does Tata give you carte blanche?
I think we’re very fortunate to have been bought by Tata. I was actively involved in the due diligence process and presenting to the various potential buyers. When Tata bought Land Rover, I remember having conversations with several people. There was a sense of trepidation, where many thought that a prospective new owner wanted to change the way we work and operate. But from the start, they said, “We are not experts on creating premium, luxury SUVs or sports cars, but we are experts at buying and investing in companies, nurturing them and letting the experts get on with the job.” And they’ve been good to their word. Mr Tata and his team were always incredibly respectful. They offer up their views, but ultimately, they’ve said, “Look, you’re the experts, keep doing what you’re doing,” and that’s incredibly liberating. Financially, they’ve been very supportive too. That philosophy spilled over to the rest of our business structures and other areas of operation.
