Jaguar Land Rover has announced an uptake of sales in the UK over the last year, with the firm seeing an 8.4 per cent rise in registrations.
Taking in March 2019 as the year-end, JLR sold 118,108 cars in that time – with both individual brands seeing an increase in customer interest.
Jaguar saw a year-on-year rise of 20.2 per cent with 38,604 units registered, while the Land Rover side of the business grew by 3.5 per cent compared to the year previous, selling 79,504 units.
In terms of best-sellers, the E-Pace led the way for Jaguar with 11,142 sales after its first full year on the market – while the Discovery Sport continued to be Land Rover’s most popular option with 19,569 units sold.
Rawdon Glover, Jaguar Land Rover managing director, said: “Despite the headwinds facing the automotive industry, I’m glad to see Jaguar Land Rover’s UK strategy is having the desired effect. Investment into the right products at the right time has seen us steadily grow our market share and our sales in what has been a declining market.
“We're excited for what's to come, too, with the return of our iconic Land Rover Defender, sales of the updated Jaguar XE and a number of other major product actions, especially the all-new Range Rover Evoque. Our retailers and customers have already been hugely enthusiastic about this new Range Rover."
