Jaguar Land Rover has best sales EVER in March

Fri, 05 Apr 2013

Jaguar Land Rover has reported its best sales figures ever in March 2013, with Land Rover sales up by 12 per cent and Jaguar by 20.6 per cent.

We’ve got used to Jaguar Land Rover producing ever growing sales figures in the last year or two as their range of cars become ever more desirable. But March 2013 has topped all their results so far with an all-time record number of cars sold – a TOTAL OF 17,733, up by 20 per cent on March 2012.

Land Rover sales continued to drive forward, but it’s good to see that it wasn’t just the Range Rover Evoque (up 9 per cent) driving sales this time, but the 2013 Range Rover (sales up 43 per cent on 2012) and the Land Rover Freelander (up by 45 per cent), where the 2013 MY Freelander looks to have been lapped up by buyers.

What’s also good to see is that Jaguar sales performed even better (in percentage terms) than Land Rover’s, for a change, with Jaguar’s increase of 20.6 per cent for March driven to a¬†great¬†extend by the new Jaguar XF Sportbrake which accounted for 23 per cent of Jaguar’s UK sales in March.

JLR’s MD, Richard Hicks, said:

The demand for the all-new Range Rover has been extremely encouraging and customers across the country are now receiving their new cars. We have also been fully prepared for the extreme weather conditions, with the Freelander Black and White special edition selling out very quickly and contributing to the rise in registrations.

Jaguar UK sales are up 24% year to date and Land Rover UK up 17%. With the market launches of the all-new Range Rover Sport, Jaguar F-TYPE and Jaguar XJR still to come in 2013, Jaguar Land Rover UK is in a very strong position.

And he’s right to be chuffed, and with more new models from Jaguar and Land Rover on the way it seems likely there will be more record sales to report during the rest of 2013.
