Jaguar Land Rover reports 66 percent sales growth in H1 2018. JLR sold 2,579 units through Jan – June 2018. Sales growth is attributed to a wide product portfolio, retail network, service network, and brand experience programmes.
Mr. Rohit Suri, President and Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd. (JLRIL) 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.”
