Despite recent reports of a downturn in the UK automotive industry, Jaguar Land Rover is reporting a 20% increase in Jaguar sales and a 2% increase in Land Rover sales in 2017.
This is the seventh successive year that the company has achieved a growth in sales. Its success is being attributed to increased demand in China and the US, the introduction of new models and the development of clean diesel and petrol engines.
The company commented that growing sales in China and the US had actually helped to offset a slow down in sales within the European and UK markets.
It remains to be seen whether other UK car manufacturers can achieve a similar model, and offset difficult UK and EU market conditions with strong overseas sales figures.
