- 2,579 cars sold in H1 2018
- Tata Motors’ consolidated sales hit 1 lakh mark globally, including Tata, JLR and the CVs
Jaguar and Land Rover, the British subsidiaries of Tata Motors, have registered a staggering 66 per cent growth in sales in comparison to the half yearly sales in 2017. With the luxury car market growing much faster than the overall automotive sector, thanks to the positive economic outlook, almost all the luxury brands in India have shown robust growth.
With 2,579 cars sold in India in the first half of the calendar year 2018, this has been the best-ever half year for JLR. With four new Range Rovers launched this year, JLR is bringing all its latest global products to India including the off-beat ones like the Range Rover Evoque convertible. Jaguar is expected to launch the E-Pace, the middle-weight sporty SUV to go against the Q5 and the GLC and should be able to add numbers to the tally by the end of 2018.
Tata Motors has also reported combined global sales above 1 lakh units for the month of June. While the commercial vehicles sales are up, the passenger vehicle segment that includes Tata and JLR have shrunk. The dip is due to the global shadow on the future of diesels which make up the largest chunk of sales for JLR.
