Jaguar Land Rover has scored its best-yet November retail sales. It sold 46,547 vehicles, up 27 per cent on November 2014. The company has sold 437,512 vehicles in the first 11 months of 2015, which means this will probably be the company’s best year yet – much of this performance can be laid at the door of the recently-launched Jaguar XE and the continued growth of Land Rover.
Retail sales for the month of November were up 70 per cent in the UK, 68 per cent up in Europe, 52 per cent up in North America and 8 per cent up year-on-year in other overseas markets. Retail volumes in China were down 22 per cent for the month, reflecting a slowdown in that country’s economy. Marking its best November yet, Land Rover sold 38,555 vehicles in the month, up 26 per cent year-on-year. Calendar year-to-date sales reached 361,908 vehicles, 4 per cent up on the prior year. Best-sellers for the month included the Range Rover Sport, 13 per cent up year-on-year, the Land Rover Discovery, 7 per cent up, and the Range Rover, which was 15 per cent up on the previous year. The new Discovery Sport continues to grow in popularity, with sales of 9358 in the month.
Jaguar delivered 7992 vehicles in the month, up 33 per cent on November 2014. Calendar year-to-date sales were 75,604, up 1 per cent year-on-year.
