Jaguar Land Rover Ireland has bucked the trend and achieved significant growth in 2012 with combined sales of over 800 vehicles up to the end of May, an increase of 39.7% versus the same period last year.
This growth is extremely encouraging given that new car sales for the industry as a whole are down by 8.7%.
The sales increase is mainly owed to the phenomenal response received from customers and media to the two award-winning models on offer from each brand, the Jaguar XF 2.2 Diesel and the all- new Range Rover Evoque.
Gerard O’Farrell, Managing Director of Jaguar Land Rover Ireland said: “The increased demand for both Jaguar and Land Rover demonstrates the unique desirability and strength of our products. And with pricing starting from just €39,000 for the Range Rover Evoque and €44,820 for the Jaguar XF, there has never been a better time to consider Jaguar and Land Rover.”
