Whitley, UK, 11 November 2019 – Jaguar Land Rover retail sales in October 2019 were 41,866 vehicles, down 5.5% compared to October 2018.

Sales continued to recover in China (up 16.2% year-on-year), the fourth consecutive month of double-digit sales growth in the region. UK sales were down 18.7% for the month, bringing the year-to-date figure to 4.2% down, which is in line with industry trends. Sales were relatively flat (-0.3%) in North America and down in Europe (-7.9%) and Overseas (-10.8%).

Sales of our latest models continued to grow, with the new Range Rover Evoque up 31.4%, the Jaguar I-PACE up 9.1%, and the refreshed Land Rover Discovery Sport up 3.4% year-on-year. Sales of the Range Rover Sport also grew 7.2%.

Land Rover retail sales in October 2019 were 31,260 vehicles, up 2.4% year-on-year, and Jaguar retails were 10,606 vehicles, down 22.9% year-on-year.

The automotive trading environment remains challenging globally. Against this background, it is all the more encouraging to see our China turnaround strategy and work with the local retailer network generating positive results as sales have improved in China for the fourth consecutive month.

Land Rover year-on-year global growth continues, with the latest generation of our ever-popular luxury compact Range Rover Evoque now available in all regions. Sales of the comprehensively updated best-selling Land Rover Discovery Sport are ramping up well. The Range Rover Sport, which combines dynamic on-road handling, luxurious refinement and trademark Land Rover all-terrain capability, also remains a key performer, with particularly strong sales in North America and China.

For Jaguar, the recently-updated Jaguar XE continues to receive critical acclaim and we are seeing an ongoing strong response to our award-winning I-PACE, the all-electric performance SUV that puts Jaguar at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution.”
