New Delhi: Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover on Thursday reported 32% increase in sales at 2,393 units in 2012.
The company had sold 1,813 cars in 2011, JLR said in a statement.
“Despite difficult economic circumstances and a general slowdown in the Indian car market, we have continued to grow our sales,” Jaguar Land Rover India VP Rohit Suri said.
This year will see the introduction of further new and refreshed products and the company is confident of increasing its share of the Indian luxury car market, he added.
During 2012, Land Rover launched luxury sport utility vehicle (SUV), the Range Rover. The Jaguar F-Type, an all new two seater sports car, will be launched in India later this year, along with model year changes for the XF and XJ, the statement said.
In India, the Jaguar product range includes the XF, XFR, XKR, XKR-S and the XJ. For Land Rover, the product range includes the Freelander 2, which is assembled at Pune, Discovery 4, Range Rover Evoque, Range Rover Sport and the all-new Range Rover.
