UK sales of Jaguar Land Rover products have grown by 8.4% over the past year, according to new figures released by the manufacturer.

With 118,108 units sold over the past twelve months, Jaguar Land Rover has massively outperformed a difficult UK new car market which has seen a 3.67% contraction in the same period.

Jaguar Land Rover also increased its market share by more than 3.5% thanks to strong interest in a number of important models.  Jaguar’s UK sales alone went up by over 20% during the past year, with the Jaguar E-PACE selling more than 11,000 units in its first full year on the market.

Meanwhile, sales of the Land Rover Discovery Sport topped 19,500 units, and with the all-new Range Rover Evoque shifting over 2,000 units despite only going on sale last month things are looking good for another year of rising sales.

The company has already announced measures to stay ahead of changing market trends, with over £1billion already invested in the Wolverhampton engine manufacturing centre where the latest Ingenium petrol and diesel engines are made, and with the commitment that from next year all new Jaguar Land Rover models will feature electrified powertrains.
