Jaguar registers 104 percent increase over August 2015.
Jaguar Land Rover has recorded its best-ever August in terms of sales. The British company has delivered a total of 36,926 vehicles last month - up by 26 percent compared to the same month a year ago.
JLR enjoys a solid performance on North American and European markets, registering increased sales by 45 percent and 37 percent respectively compared to the previous year. China is also a strong market with 36 percent more sales, while the United Kingdom is down by three percent.
“We continue to grow our sales, with impressive performances across both of our brands,” Andy Goss, Jaguar Land Rover Group sales operations director, commented.
“Sales in North America were particularly strong, where we sold over 10,000 vehicles in August alone.”
The automaker’s success is driven mainly by the strong results of the Land Rover Discovery Sport (7,053 sales), and the Jaguar XE and F-Pace. The Range Rover Evoque Convertible also helped, finding more than 1,200 new owners worldwide – “promising results since its start of sales,” as Jaguar Land Rover explains.
“The Evoque Convertible has performed well in its first few months of sales and will play a key role in continuing Range Rover's 45-year success story,” Goss added.
Jaguar is also on the rise with an incredible increase of sales by 104 percent over August 2015. Year-to-date sales are up by 72 percent with 85,726 deliveries to customers.
Last year, JLR sold a total of 487,065 cars worldwide, up by five percent over 2014. Of that, Jaguar accounts for 83,986 vehicles and Land Rover for 403,079. Over the past five years, UK’s biggest automotive manufacturer has doubled sales and employment, more than tripled turnover, and invested over $16 billion in new products. Over $4 billion will be invested in products and facilities in the current fiscal year.
