Jaguar : UK sales up 50 per cent in November

Jaguar’s UK sales in November have risen by 50 per cent compared to the same month last year with a total of 1463 models sold.

This success has been led by both the XK and XF models – with sales increasing by 78.4 per cent and 149 per cent respectively for the month.

Geoff Cousins, Managing Director, Jaguar UK said: ‘The momentum for XF just keeps on going. We have now sold more XF models so far this year, in its second year in showrooms, than we did at the same point in 2008, when we launched. Selling 9128 XF so far this year compared to 8462 sales year to date in 2008 is a great result. This result highlights the demand we continue to see for XF in our showrooms following the introduction of the excellent new 3.0-litre diesel engine.

‘The success of both the new XF and XK models demonstrates excitement and interest in the new range of Jaguar cars. I am delighted these figures reflect a step forward for Jaguar UK within a challenging market and I expect it to continue when the new XJ joins the line-up in 2010.’

Clive claims that his interest in the BMC>MG story dates back to his childhood in the 1960s when the family’s garage premises were leased to a tenant with an Austin agency. However, back in the 1920s and 1930s, his grandmother was one of the country’s first female Garage Proprietors so cars probably run in his genes! Admits to affairs with Alfa Romeos, but has more recently owned an 06/06 MG TF 135 and then a 15/64 MG3 Style… Clive, who was AROnline’s News Editor for nearly four years, stood down from that role in order to devote more time to various Motor Racing projects but still contributes articles on as regular basis as his other commitments permit.
