Jaguar Land Rover has just recorded its best-ever May, with retail sales of 44,946 vehicles. That’s up 18% on May last year, and is thanks in part to the all-new Jaguar F-Pace.
This is the company’s fifth consecutive record-breaking month, with Jaguar Land Rover sold 245,100 vehicles in the first five months of 2016, 23% up on the same period in the prior year.
The Jaguar F-Pace, which is designed, engineered, and manufactured in the UK, has seen impressive results this month, with more than 3,000 vehicles sold worldwide. The new family sports car is the company’s fastest selling Jaguar ever, and if you watched BBC’s Top Gear last week, you won’t struggle to understand why. It’s a handsome beast to say the least, and backs this up with a superb drive; both on- and off-road.
Commenting on the performance, Andy Goss, Jaguar Land Rover Group Sales Operations Director said: “Following its UK and US launch this month, I am delighted to see that response to the new Jaguar F-PACE has been extremely positive – with over 3,000 global sales this month.
“We are committed to exceeding our customers’ expectations by delivering the highest standards of quality and technology and by producing exceptional premium vehicles.”
Land Rover strengthened its position as a world-leading manufacturer of all-terrain SUVs, with record May sales of 34,313 vehicles in the month, up 6% year-on-year. The best-seller for the month was the Discovery Sport, retailing an impressive 10,075 vehicles. Calendar year-to-date sales for Land Rover reached 196,620 vehicles, 16% up on the prior year.
