Commer The Commercial Car Company had started in London, but began production of truckls at Luton in 1907, and buses in 1909, gaining lots of orders for the British Army during WW1. Receivership forced Commer into the hands of Humber in 1926, and then into the Rootes Group in 1931. Following the Chrysler take over of Rootes the name 'Commer' was replaced by 'Dodge' and eventually by 'Renault'. Karrier had started business in Huddersfield as Clayton and Company 1904. The name was changed to 'Karrier' in 1920, and became famous for a three wheeler 'mechanical horse' (the Karrier Cob) in the 1930s, and the 4-wheeler Bantam that replaced the Cob. The Rootes Group purchased Karrier in 1934 and moved production to Luton. Karrier also vanished under the Dodge and Renault renaming.
The Commer name was replaced by the Dodge name during the 1970s following the takeover of Rootes by Chrysler Europe. After Peugeot purchased Chrysler Europe in 1978, the Commer factory was run in partnership with the truck division of Renault, Renault Trucks. It continued to produce the Dodge commercial truck range for some time, with Renault badges and a small amount of product development, eventually these were cancelled in favour of mainstream Renault models and switching production at the factory to production of Renault truck and bus engines in the early 1990s.
