A SURGE in sales in the Far East has helped Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) record a strong first half to the year.
JLR sales worldwide reached 210,190 in the first six months of 2013 – a rise of 14 per cent on the January-June 2012 total.
China sales for Jaguar so far this year have reached almost 8,000, surpassing the 2012 full-year total, while Asia Pacific sales for Jaguar and Land Rover combined are up 26 per cent in the first half of 2013.
In the first half, JLR sales in the UK are up 16 per cent, North America has risen 13 per cent and Europe has increased 6 per cent.
JLR group sales operations director Phil Popham said: “New model introductions have been incredibly well received with the all-new Range Rover retailing more than 22,000 units since launch.”
