Jaguar Land Rover, the UK's leading manufacturer of premium luxury vehicles, today reported its best ever July retail sales of 44,486 vehicles, up 34% compared to July 2015. 
The month’s record performance has been driven by strong sales of the Land Rover Discovery Sport, the Jaguar XE and the F-PACE. Jaguar Land Rover sold 336,052 vehicles in the first seven months of 2016, up 23% on the same period in the prior year.
In July, Jaguar Land Rover has delivered a particularly solid performance in China and North America with retail sales increasing by 64% and 51% respectively compared to the previous year. Retail sales were up year-on-year across all other regions: 38% in the UK, 24% in Europe and 2% in other overseas markets.

Commenting on the performance, Andy Goss, Jaguar Land Rover Group Sales Operations Director said: "This has been another record month for Jaguar Land Rover with impressive sales across both of our brands. The Discovery Sport and the Jaguar XE have delivered record July sales performances and the Jaguar F-PACE is in popular demand with our customers, reflecting the global appeal of our strongest ever vehicle line up."
