British motoring world offers condolences after Queen’s death
The British motoring world has also offered its condolences following the death of Queen Elizabeth II. “We are deeply saddened by the passing of the Queen, who gave her life to the service of the nation. She was also a lifelong supporter of the British motor industry, with a keen interest and excellent knowledge of many of our products,” said umbrella organization SMMT, which was the first to send a message.

Jaguar Land Rover, which supplies the Royal Family with many Range Rovers which have also been regularly driven by the Queen herself, said in a Twitter post: “The passing of HM The Queen has left everyone here at Jaguar Land Rover deeply saddened. Our relationship and Malkia has been a source of pride for all of us at JLR.
The messages were followed by condolences from almost every car company operating in the UK, from Kia UK to McLaren and from Renault to Aston Martin. British business majors also expressed their grief. For example, Robert Forrester, CEO of Vertu Group, wrote: “He was one of the most loved and respected people in the world. The Vertu Group joins the world in mourning his death.”
