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."
