Jaguar Land Rover sales scoot ahead

Strong first quarter performance from Jaguar – Land Rover.

Land Rover sales have climbed 3% this year.

They are as British as Winston Churchill and the Union Jack, well except for the fact that they are owned by the Indian auto giants TATA!

Never the less, Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles have never been so well-built, or popular.

Global sales data for the first quarter of the year shows the brands sold a combined 124,776 vehicles, 8% more than the same period in 2013.

As with Audi’s record first-quarter, much of the growth is on the back of increased demand in China, where Jaguar and Land Rover sales have jumped 36% this year.

Sales were also up 13% in North America and the Asia Pacific.

Jaguar has been the stronger performer of the two brands, sales for the big cat have climbed 19%, Land Rover sales are up 3% compared to the first three months of last year.

Andy Goss, Jaguar Land Rover Group Sales Operations Director has welcomed the steady increase in sales.

“This has been a strong start to the year for both brands thanks to continued global demand for our latest model offerings.

“The F-TYPE Coupe has just been launched to the world’s media to critical acclaim and Land Rover are set to reveal a Discovery Vision Concept car at the New York International Auto Show, to showcase Land Rover’s design vision for a new family of Discovery vehicles.”
