Land Rover is not connected to MG Rover group insolvency

BRAMALEA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Apr. 19, 2005) - In view of some recent media and misunderstandings,
Land Rover would like to make it clear that it is an entirely separate company from MG Rover.

With the appointment of administrators at MG Rover in the UK, Land Rover wishes it to be made clear
that there is no connection between the two companies.

Ford Motor Company acquired Land Rover from BMW in 2000. After the recent successful launch of the
Land Rover LR3, as well the continued success of Freelander, Land Rover is looking forward to the
launch of two new vehicles, the Range Rover for 2006 and the all-new Range Rover Sport due in
retailers in June 2005.

Land Rover North America is part of Aston Martin Jaguar Land Rover with headquarters in Irvine,
California. Land Rover established operations in the U.S. in 1986, and now imports and distributes
Range Rover, LR3 and Freelander vehicles manufactured by Land Rover in Solihull, England. Land
Rover's worldwide operations are wholly owned by Ford Motor Company, Dearborn, Michigan. For
