The Lincoln Motor Company, popularly known as Lincoln, is a division of the renowned U.S. based Ford Motor Company. Lincoln Motor Company was founded in August 1917 in Dearborn, Michigan, U.S. by Henry M. Leland and his son Wilfred Leland. The company was named by Henry after the legendary U.S. President Abraham Lincoln. At that time, World War I was still on and the United States was also involved in it in a big way. Main income for Henry’s company was through military contracts at that time. The company also co-assembled aircraft engines using supplies from Ford Motor Company. Since 1922, the company is a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company. In 2014, the Lincoln brand was also introduced in China.
