Jaguar Land Rover record another record breaking month

The new Jaguar F-PACE helped propel Jaguar Land Rover to its best ever May and its fifth consecutive record-breaking month.

The Jaguar F-PACE, which is designed, engineered and manufactured in the UK, has seen particularly impressive results this month with more than 3000 vehicles sold worldwide, making it the fastest selling Jaguar ever.

Retail sales in May were up year-on-year across all regions, including a 28% increase in China and a 24% increase in Europe.

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 also strengthened its position as a world-leading manufacturer of all-terrain SUVs, with record May sales up 6% year-on-year.

The best-seller for the month was the Discovery Sport, retailing an impressive 10,075 vehicles.

Jaguar recorded its best May in over a decade, delivering 10,633 vehicles, up 90% on the previous year, reflecting the strong launch of the F-PACE as well as continued solid sales of the XE and XF.

This month, Jaguar performed very strongly across all regions, notably in Europe, where sales were 281% up on the prior year.

Calendar year-to-date sales for Jaguar were 48,480 up 60% year-on-year.
