JLR follows strong end to 2009 with further increase in sales
16 July 2010

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.

Good to hear that JLR are doing better, but i would prefer to see Autocar conduct an analysis of all brands' performance, rather than just printing a JLR press release. See Sutcliffe's blog on bias...

I am sure that there are a number of brands who are well up on 2009 sales, as it was such a horrible year. It's entirely possible that JLR was hit harder than others in 2009, so has bounced back better than those who didn't drop off as much.

As i have requested before when 2010 sales improvements have been bandied about, it would be good to have 2008 and even 2007 results provided as well, rather than just 2009. That would be more indicative of how a manufacturer is travelling.

Good performance. Now let's see if they can sustain it.

yeah more media spin .... 47 pc up sounds great, however in the context of 2007, seems like they have some way to go to get to were they were pre GFC.

Headlines from 2007 ... Jaguar sales drop 19%, down to 60,485 vehicles ... cough ...Autocar please bring back *real* balanced reporting instead of headlines that sell ..

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.

Not surprised by the unhappiness expressed on any sort of good news regarding British marques. Autocar you should really start thinking about a German edition.

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.

Congrats, JLR!
