Jaguar Land Rover announced record breaking sales performances in March. Phil Popham, Group Sales Operations Director said "despite a challenging business environment, Jaguar Land Rover is flourishing on a global scale with March sales reflecting the confidence consumers have in our brands and products." A 30% surge in sales for the Range Rover 2011 model year led to the UK beating its previous record set in 2010 with total sales of 11,400 for the month the highest monthly total in the company's 63 year history.
The Range Rover Evoque is already shaping up to be the most exciting car of 2011. It will go on sale this summer and prices will start from £30,000 in the UK. The Range Rover Evoque benefits from the same high-end innovative technologies as the larger Range Rovers. There is expected to be an electric/hybrid version of the Range Rover Evoque produced in 2012/2013.
Commenting on Jaguar's performance Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director said "Jaguar is continuing to make very positive headway in a number of emerging markets thanks to our strongest ever vehicle line up which was completed in 2010 with the new XJ. The Jaguar XJ has been named ‘Luxury Car of the Year 2010’ by Top Gear magazine, this now places the Jaguar XJ above rivals from BMW and Audi.
