Jaguar Land Rover posts best ever November sales at 46,547 vehicles

Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover today reported its best ever November retail sales of 46,547 vehicles, up 27 per cent compared with November last year even as a slowdown in China, hit the world's auto market.

UK-based Jaguar Land Rover sold 437,512 vehicles in the first 11 months of 2015, 4 per cent up from sales in the comparable period in the previous year.

In the UK, retail sales for November rose 70 per cent, while in Europe the figures were up 68 per cent. Sales rose 52 per cent in North America and 8 per cent year-on-year in other overseas markets. Retail volumes in China slowed 22 per cent for the month, reflecting slowdown in the economy.

''We started the fourth quarter of 2015 with a record October and have followed this up with another historic month of sales, thanks in large part to the performance of the UK and European markets,'' JLR group sales operations director Andy Goss said.

''Jaguar has delivered a strong performance with solid growth in the UK and Europe thanks to the new XE. Land Rover has again seen record sales this month with continued strong global demand for the new and refreshed model line-up,'' he said.
