Tata Motors' subsidiary Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) achieved its second highest February sales performance with strong sales of the new Range Rover Velar and Land Rover Discover and the new 18 model year Range Rover and Rover Sport as well as the new Jaguar E-PACE still ramping up, despite difficult trading conditions in key European markets, especially the UK.

Retail sales of 39,911 Jaguars and Land Rovers in February were 2.6% down on the previous year's all-time high. Solid demand in China (3.3% up) and other overseas markets (1.5% up) was offset by lower sales in the UK (15.2% down for the month) and Europe (6.9% down), where trading conditions remained challenging. Sales in North America were 2.2% down on the same month in the previous year. With the company's sales up 2.9% in January, year-to-date sales are level with a year ago.

Jaguar sales in February were down by 5.2% year-on-year with 11,565 units sold. The F-PACE SUV remained the brand's biggest seller, followed by the XF which saw sales up 15%, including the Sportbrake and, in China, the long-wheelbase XFL. The new E-PACE compact SUV is still ramping up after going on sale in the UK in late 2018 and in Europe and the USA in January.

Global Land Rover sales of 28,346 were down 1.5% compared with a record February in 2017. Sales of the new Velar and Discovery launched in 2017 were up significantly while the new 18 Model Year Range Rover and Range Rover Sport offering a plug in hybrid option for the first time are still ramping up.

Shares of the company declined Rs 4.55, or 1.31%, to trade at  Rs 343.45.  The total volume of shares traded  was  134,722 at the BSE (10.17 a.m., Thursday).
