Jaguar Land Rover has experienced a large rise in global sales during June, owner Tata Motors has said.

JLR sold 20,189 units last month – a 47 per cent increase year-on-year.

Land Rover sales increased by 41 per cent to 13,413 units while Jaguar sales for the month rose 59 per cent to 6,776 units.

This builds on the £38.7 million profit the group made in the final quarter of 2009 and the huge increase in sales year-on-year in 2010 since.

Tata said cumulative sales of JLR for the company’s fiscal year, which started April 1, are 57,153, up 59 per cent on the year before.

JLR is expected to more than double its dealerships in India this year, according to the Hindustan Times.

I don't think anyone is unhappy to hear good news about any British marque. The only unhappiness mentioned prior to your post was regarding the lack of robust analysis of the JLR press release. How significant is this improvement in real terms? What was their target? How does it compare to their opposition? You know, basic journalism stuff.

Brilliant news for JLR, Especially since other than the XF they are mostly relying on models that have been around for some time. Now with the XJ followed by the Evoque this should definitely improve. Considering that there were many who were licking their lips in anticipation that the company will bite dust in a couple of years, glad to know JLR is still fighting it out.
