Default Jaguar Land Rover post record sales in 2013. 425,000 cars!

JLR sold 425006 vehicles, a jump of 19%, in 2013.
The report also states that JLR claimed that Jaguar was the fastest growing brand in USA, China & India. That last one seems hard to believe - fastest growing in India?

I think we can agree that this is one of the fastest growing brand in India, We do come across many cars now on the roads. This is a clear reflection of their growth. They have made their presence felt in the market in a very little time.

Tata has a unique case, the Jaguar brand is turning out to be the fastest growing brand while their own passenger cars are turning out to be the fastest de-growing brand.

If you dig a little more into the details, one interesting nugget that emerges - JLR was the fastest growing in Germany with a increase of 30% over last year driven primarily by Range Rover. The big three German vendors all declined in their home market by between 1-6%. Talk about taking the fight to the opposition!!!

It probably is true that JLR is the fastest growing in India as the base sales volume is very small. Hence the % of growth must be large.

JLR has a long way to go in India, they have been proactive with the XF by launching more models however their pricing strategy needs to be looked at. Audi has crossed 10k units, JLR has a looong way to go before it reaches anywhere close to that mark.
