Jaguar Land Rover August Sales Up 26% At 36,926 Units

New Delhi: Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover on Wednesday reported 26 per cent increase in retail sales with 36,926 units in August.

The month’s performance has been driven by strong sales of the Land Rover Discovery Sport, the Jaguar F-PACE and XE, Tata Motors said in a BSE filing.

The Jaguar brand sold 10,868 units in August, up 104 per cent from the year-ago month, reflecting the strong launch of the F-PACE as well as continued solid sales of the XE, it added.

Land Rover’s August sales were at 26,058 vehicles, up 9 per cent year-on-year driven mainly by the Discovery Sport, which retailed 7,053 units.

Last month, Jaguar Land Rover delivered particularly solid performances in North America and Europe with retail sales increasing by 45 per cent and 37 per cent respectively compared to the previous year.

Retail sales were 36 per cent up in China, down 3 per cent in the UK and 2 per cent in other overseas markets, the company added.
