On Monday 3 August 2020 a High Court judge dismissed an appeal by Jaguar Land Rover’s parent company Tata Motors to get trademark rights for the Land Rover Defender.
The decision means Ineos Automotive is now free to press ahead with its Grenadier off-roader. The Grenadier, which is being bankrolled by chemical billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is
a boxy SUV which bears a strong resemblance to the Defender.
However, The UK Intellectual Property Office had previously found the shapes of the Defender were not distinctive enough.
