JLR is targeting 40 new dealerships in China by the end of the year, bringing the total up to 100
9 February 2011

Jaguar Land Rover plans to open 40 new dealerships in China.

According to a JLR executive, the luxury car maker will have 100 dealerships in China by the end of the year, up from today’s figure of 60.

When speaking to China Daily, Bob Grace, JLR's China president said that the country remained a key market for the firm but declined to comment on reports that JLR was looking for a Chinese partner to produce vehicles there.

In January this year JLR opened a flagship showroom in Beijing which is expected to sell 400 cars a year, with a newly opened unit in Tianjin expected to sell half that amount.

Jaguar sales last year rose by 50 per cent to 2700 units, while Land Rover sales doubled to 23,500 vehicles.
