Jaguar Land Rover Reports November Sales Results

  November % change YOY Jan – Nov % increase YOY
Jaguar Land Rover 52,332 10.0% 565,412 7.1%
Jaguar 13,688 (6.3%) 163,522 23.5%
Land Rover 38,644 17.2% 401,890 1.6%

Jaguar Land Rover sold 52,332 vehicles in November, up 10.0% year on year, driven primarily by the introduction of the new Land Rover Discovery and the Range Rover Velar. Furthermore, retail sales of Jaguar’s all new compact SUV, the E-PACE, began in the UK and Europe during November.

In November Jaguar Land Rover retail sales were up in Overseas markets (19.7%), China (19.1%), the UK (8.6%) and in North America (7.8%) but down 2.1% in Europe.

Andy Goss, Jaguar Land Rover Group Sales Operations Director, said: "November has been a robust month for Land Rover, driving sales up globally across all of our key regions.

"Jaguar sales have been more hard won but the future performance of both brands will be boosted as the new E-PACE goes on sale across the world and the new 18 MY Range Rover and Range Rover Sport with plug-in hybrid capability go to market."

Jaguar retail sales were 13,688 vehicles in November, down 6.3% compared to the same month last year, as solid sales of the long wheel base XFL in China were more than offset by lower sales of XE.

Land Rover retailed 38,644 vehicles in November, up 17.2% compared to November of last year, primarily reflecting the sales ramp up of the all new Discovery and the introduction of the Range Rover Velar partially offset by softer sales of Range Rover Sport. Retail sales of the refreshed Range Rover and Range Rover Sport (including plug-in hybrid variants) are due in the New Year.
