Jaguar Land Rover sells 210,190 vehicles globally in the first-half of 2013, up 14 per cent

Jaguar Land Rover has sold 210,190 vehicles during the first six months of 2013, an increase of 14 per cent versus the same period last year. This result was supported by a positive performance in June with sales up 7 per cent globally.

June year-to-date sales were up for
Jaguar Land Rover in every major region: Asia Pacific up 26 per cent, Overseas up 18 per cent, UK and China Region both up 16 per cent, North America up 13 per cent, and Europe up 6 per cent.

"It is very encouraging to see both our Jaguar and Land Rover brands delivering strong sales performances across our 178 markets. New model introductions have been incredibly well received with the all-new Range Rover retailing more than 22,000 units since launch," said Phil Popham, Jaguar Land Rover Group Sales Operations Director.

Jaguar sold 37,636 vehicles in the first six months of 2013, up 29 per cent. This reflects the impact of the all-new Jaguar F-Type which has sold almost 3,000 units since launch and sales of XF which, at 24,099 units reflects the positive impact of the 3.0 V6 and 2.0 4-cylinder petrol engines, AWD and Sportbrake derivatives. Jaguar demonstrated strong growth in all of the major regions - China Region up 85 per cent, UK up 22 per cent, North America up 23 per cent, Asia Pacific up 21 per cent, and Overseas up 20 per cent and Europe up 13 per cent.

In June, Jaguar sold 6,574 vehicles up 34 per cent with performances in each major region as follows - China up 102 per cent, North America up 64 per cent, Asia Pacific up 24 per cent, UK up 16 per cent, Overseas up 13 per cent and Europe down 5 per cent owing to the difficult economic trading conditions in some markets.

Land Rover sold 172,554 vehicles in the first six months of 2013, up 11 per cent with positive performances in all major regions: Asia Pacific up 28 per cent, Overseas up 18 per cent, UK up 15 per cent, North America up 10 per cent, China up 6 per cent, and Europe up 5 per cent. Freelander 2 continues to deliver a strong performance with retail sales for the period up 28 per cent.

In June, Land Rover sold 27,165 vehicles up 2 per cent despite the run out of Range Rover Sport. Freelander 2 was again a strong performer with retails up 13 per cent, and Discovery 4 continues to deliver, up 9 per cent. Regional performances are as follows - Asia Pacific up 36 per cent, UK up 10 per cent, China region was flat and both North American and Europe showed minor softening as a direct result of the Range Rover Sport run out.
