JLR Best Ever Month

JLR Best Ever MonthJLR Best Ever Month

Jaguar Land Rover has reported its best ever sales in October, with a total of 41,553 cars sold in the month, an increase of 24% on October 2014.

In fact, in many markets, JLR is doing very well, with sales in the UK up by 40%, in the US by 74% and in Europe by 24%. There was even a jump of 9% in China, although the rest of the world sales did drop by 5%, blamed on problems in Brazil and Russia, according to Cars UK.

But it is still Land Rover that’s the big seller, with 34,000 cars sold – up by 21%–with the Range Rover Sport up by 40%, the Land Rover Discovery up by 41%, despite its age and the Range Rover up by 21%. The new Discovery Sport, which has no comparable number for 2014, sold 7,182. But no mention of Evoque.

Jaguar only delivered 18% of the total sales–7,476 in the month–but that was still 39% up on 2014, with the UK taking 150% more Jags than last year and Europe 64%, with the new Jaguar XE shifting 3,515 in the month.

But with XE sales about to start in China (and in the US in 2016), and the new F-Pace on the way, we should see Jaguar sales continue to grow strongly.
