Land Rover, which has worn the "beleaguered" tag for too long, is getting more and more rays of light its way. The latest bit of sunshine comes in the form of a hiring flurry – according to Autocar, the company's Solihull factory is upping its 5,000-strong workforce by the not-insignificant number of 275 workers due to strong sales.

The 2010 model line has begun to show what Land Rover is really capable of – the LR4 and RR Sport especially – and March's sales numbers were the best in the company's history, with over 11,300 new keys handed over. Congrats to Land Rover and its 275 added employees...
