British automotive company Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) recorded its best July in car sales last month.
The car manufacturer sold 31,611 vehicles resulting in an increase of 21% compared with the previous July.
JLR also improved figures for the seven-month period up to the end of July as vehicle sales for the year reached 241,801, a 15% increase on the same point in 2012.
Jaguar sold a total of 6,157 vehicles in July revealing a 65% rise, which was attributed to significant growth in China.
Land Rover broke its own July record selling 25,454 vehicles, up 14% on July 2012.
July sales were stronger outside the continent with only 8% of orders coming from the UK and flat growth in Europe. Sales in Asia Pacific were up 43%, the China Region rose 36%, North America up 31% and other overseas markets increased 29%.
Phil Popham, Jaguar Land Rover Group sales operations director, said:
“This has been another record month for Jaguar Land Rover driven by particularly strong performances in the US, China and Asia Pacific.
“Jaguar has delivered a very strong performance with solid growth in China and North America thanks to the refreshed XJ and XF models. Land Rover has again seen record sales this month with continued strong global demand for the new and refreshed model line-up.”
