Jaguar Land Rover sold over 25, 000 vehicles globally in October, 10 percent more than in the same month last year.

The exact number of JLR vehicles sold last month is 25,176, thanks to growth in all major markets apart from the U.S., which was impacted by the hurricane in the last week of the month and in anticipation of new 2013 Model Year products for Jaguar.

In the first ten months of 2012, Jaguar Land Rover retailed 294,291 vehicles, an increase of 35 percent compared to the same period a year ago. JLR has experienced strong sales growth across all major markets, with increased sales in North America (+15 percent), UK (+21 percent), Europe (+41 percent), China (+78 percent) and Asia Pacific (+38 percent).

The Land Rover brand sold 22,166 vehicles in October, 3,235 units more (+17 percent) from 2011. Sales of the Evoque, Range Rover Sport, Discovery, and Freelander were all up. Since the start of the year, Land Rover has sold 249,414 vehicles (+41 percent).

The Jaguar brand sold 3,010 vehicles last month, down 929 units (-24 percent) primarily due to the impact of the hurricane in the USA and in advance of the introduction of the 2013 Model Year XF and XJ model ranges across all major markets later this year. During the first 10 months of 2012 Jaguar delivered 44,877 vehicles, up 8 percent from a year ago.
