Article by Anita Panait, on July 13, 2013

Jaguar Land Rover saw its global sales in June 2013 surge by 7 percent year-on-year to 33,739, thanks to growing demand for Jaguar cars in China. Jaguar Land Rover said that global sales for Jaguar grew 34 percent year-on-year in June 2013 to 6,574 cars, with figures in China gaining twice as much year-on-year in the month.

Global sales for Land Rover brand, on the other hand, soared 2 percent year-on-year in June 2013 to 27,165 cars. The still rising demand for premium vehicles in China as well as other emerging markets has been keeping the carmaker alive and profitable, unlike other European carmakers that had to succumb to site closures.

Jaguar Land Rover disclosed in April 2013 that it expect its sales in China to surge by 20 percent to 30 percent this year. The carmaker said the hike in global sales in June 2013 was booted by demand for the new Range Rover and the Jaguar F-Type, which sales commenced in China this month.

Phil Popham, Jaguar Land Rover's sales chief, said in a statement, that new model introductions have been "incredibly well received" with the new Range Rover posting over 22,000 sales since its launch. Jaguar Land Rover disclosed that sales in the first half of 2013 surged in every key market.

The carmaker's sales in the first six months of 2013 hiked 16 percent in China, 13 percent in North America, and 6 percent in Europe. The UK-based carmaker said that total sales for both brands jumped 14 percent year-on-year to 210,190 cars in the first six months of 2013. Jaguar Land Rover accounts for more than 75% of the parent Tata Motors' revenues.
