Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) today reported 11 percent increase in October retail sales of 46,325 units.


The month's performance has been driven by strong sales of the Land Rover Discovery Sport, Range Rover Evoque, Jaguar XF and the introduction of the Jaguar F-PACE, as well as strong year-on-year sales growth in China and Europe, JLR said in a statement.


JLR Group Sales Operations Director Andy Goss said: "With our most engaging product line up to date, we are continuing to see positive sales momentum. Impressive performances across Europe and China have boosted our year-to-date sales to over 4,80,000 vehicles."

In the first ten months of 2016, JLR sold 4,80,349 vehicles, 23 percent up on the same period in the prior year.


The Jaguar brand recorded retail sales of 14,402 units in October, up 93 percent on the previous year, reflecting the strong launch of the F-PACE and the introduction of the long- wheel base XFL in China, JLR said.


Sales of the Land Rover brand however were down 6 percent in October at 31,923 units. The company had ceased production of the Defender and Discovery in January 2016 and August 2016 respectively.
