Morris Information
Founded 1919
Headquarters Longbridge, England, United Kingdom
Defunct 1984
Owner SAIC

Morris Motors Limited was a British motor vehicle manufacturer formed in 1919 to take over the assets of WRM Motors Ltd., which had been put into voluntary liquidation. Though merged into larger organisations, the Morris name remained in use until 1984 when British Leyland's Austin Rover Group decided to concentrate on the more popular Austin brand. The trademark is currently owned by the China-based automotive company SAIC after being transferred from bankrupt subsidiary Nanjing Automotive.

Today, the former Morris manufacturing complex at Cowley, Oxford survives as Plant Oxford, and is owned by the BMW Group as the headquarters of the MINI marque and associated family of vehicles.
