Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) India has revealed their half yearly sales report recently. The automaker has reportedly registered a growth of 66 per cent, against what the company achieved during the same period last year. The British luxury automaker sold a total of 2,579 units this year during January- June 2018. The whole credit of achieving this growth has been given to JLR’s strong product portfolio, retail and after-sales service, and the various brand experience programmes conducted for its customers by the manufacturer.
Commenting on the company's performance, Rohit Suri- President & Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India said, "In 2018, JLR India has seen tremendous growth on the back of new launches like the Range Rover Velar, Evoque Convertible and Model Year 2018 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport. These, coupled with dedicated Retail and After Sales, initiatives have helped us register a solid growth and we once again thank our customers for their continued patronage and enthusiasm for the two iconic brands, Jaguar and Land Rover."
During the first six months of 2018, Jaguar launched the updated version of the XE and XF sedans with the new 2.0 Ingenium petrol engines in the Indian market, while Land Rover alone launched six new, facelifted, or special edition models in India. In January, the automaker launched the Range Rover Evoque Landmark Edition followed by the all-new Range Rover Convertible in March and later it launched the facelifted Range Rover Evoque and the Discovery Sport with its 2.0 Ingenium petrol engine in the country and at the end the carmaker launched its flagship SUVs, the 2018 Range Rover and the Range Rover Sport Facelift in India in June 2018.
