US MODEL HIGHLIGHTS
The Land Rover brand reached a new September sales high of 6,966 units, an increase of 9 percent compared to 6,407 units in September 2017.
With sales of 1,878 units, the Range Rover Sport also set a new September sales record. Its sales in September were up 47 percent compared to 1,280 units, sold in September 2017.
With sales of 1,503 units, the Range Rover achieved the best ever September sales month too, which was up 28 percent compared to 1,178 units sold in September 2017.
In the U.S., the 2018 Land Rover model line-up features six models; two within the Discovery family, and four within the Range Rover Family.
The four vehicles within the Range Rover Family – Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Evoque – are distinguished by a sense of refinement and outright luxury. With its introduction in late 2017, the Range Rover Velar marked an evolved design direction for the family; offering new levels of refinement, elegance and technology to the premium mid-size segment, while simultaneously capturing the 2018 World Car Design of the Year honors.
The Discovery Family – Discovery and Discovery Sport – bridges the gap between utility and refinement, for absolute versatility. With variable five- and seven-passenger seating options in both the compact Discovery Sport and full-size Discovery, this family of vehicles features the latest connectivity technologies, innovative storage solutions and on-/off-road capability.
Across the Land Rover brand, there are a range of clean and efficient gas and diesel engines offered to owners, selectively available in 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder sizes depending on the model, and – for the first time in the U.S. – in 2019, a Plug-In Hybrid Electric (PHEV) option for both the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport.
The new ‘P400e’ PHEV derivative available in both the 2019 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport provides sustainable performance by combining a 296hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder Ingenium gasoline engine with a 141hp (105kW) electric motor. The 398hp total available power output4 is routed through the permanent four-wheel drive system – delivering 0-60mph in 6.3 seconds (0-100km/h in 6.8 seconds) and a maximum speed of 137mph (220km/h)3. With an impressive 472-lb. ft. of torque on tap, the new powertrain delivers dynamic performance with traditional Range Rover capability, comfort and refinement.
For the month of September, Jaguar sales were 2,040 units, a 38 percent decrease from 3,296 units in September 2017. The award winning Jaguar F-PACE continued to lead the brand’s performance with 904 units sold. The new Jaguar E-PACE achieved strong sales results for the month with 408 units sold.
With the introduction of the brand’s first-ever all-electric mid-size performance SUV, the I-PACE, this fall, Jaguar has now expanded its line-up to include eight vehicles across three families. Entries in the compact, mid-size and full-size segments are selectively available as SUVs, sedans and sports cars, priced from $38,600 – for the E-PACE compact crossover – to $125,850 – for the brand’s halo sports car, the F-TYPE SVR Convertible1.
The XE compact sport sedan, XF premium mid-size sedan, XF Sportbrake mid-size wagon and the brand’s luxury flagship – the full-size Jaguar XJ – each deliver segment leading driving dynamics, timeless design and the latest connected technologies and driver assistance features luxury owners expect.
For a brand most associated with sports cars and sedans, the introduction of a ‘-PACE’ family of SUVs and crossovers with the 2017 F-PACE was a huge departure. In the two years since its debut, the ‘-PACE’ family has expanded with two additional models — the entry point for the Jaguar brand, the compact crossover E-PACE, and the brand’s first-ever foray into the EV market, the I-PACE electric crossover. Reflecting today’s buying habits, the F-PACE has remained the Jaguar brand’s best-selling vehicle since it first went on sale.
The Jaguar F-TYPE enters its sixth year of production with the 2019 model. Since it was brought to market in 2014, the F-TYPE model line-up has expanded to include 20 different derivatives; selectively available in rear- and all-wheel drive, with a choice of 4-, 6- and 8-cylinder engines ranging from 300 to 575 horsepower.
Every new Jaguar vehicle comes with Jaguar EliteCare, a Best-in-Class ownership package2. This warranty is further expanded for Jaguar I-PACE customers covering the electric battery for 8-years / 100,000 miles and a 70 percent state of health5.
