The growth has been primarily driven by an increase in Jaguar sales by 64 per cent for the first half of the year, Jaguar Land Rover said in a statement. With retails of almost 9,500 vehicles, the F-PACE is Jaguar's fastest selling model and the brand's growth is supported by continued strong sales of both the XE and XF, it added.
"During the first half of the year, Jaguar Land Rover has seen increased sales across all of its major regions with 35 per cent in Europe, 21 per cent in the UK, 21 per cent in North America, 19 per cent in China and 11 per cent in overseas markets," the company added.
The Jaguar brand has sold 61,651 vehicles during the period, up 64 per cent from a year ago. Land Rover, on the other hand sold 2,29,905 vehicles in the same period, up 14 per cent from the same period last year.

June retail sales were up year-on-year across all regions with 44 per cent in North America, 19 per cent in China, 14 per cent in Europe, 8 per cent in the UK and 7 per cent in overseas markets.
