Ogle Design
David Ogle founded Ogle Design in 1954 and started designing and producing cars from 1959. David Ogle was killed in a car crash in 1962, and the company was then managed by Tom Karen who became chief designer Ogle stopped manufacturing and produced designs for others make, the first of these being the Ogle SX250 designed for Daimler but taken up by Reliant instead. That started an association with Reliant that led to the Scimitar and the GTE, with the Reliant Robin and Bond Bug on the way. Tom Karen also did the Panorama Elite for Plaxton Coaches and then the Dominant for its rivals Duple. In 2000 the design operation was sold to a Swedish company to become Ogle Noor, whilst Ogle continued in the UK on Research and Development.

Launched in 1967 it was made by Reliant until 1974 when BTB Engineering took over manufacture until 1987 as the 'Ant'. Greek company Mebea made the TW9 from 1978
