Record 2012 for Land Rover

It’s the best ever sales year for Land Rover. The manufacturer sold 54,480 vehicles over the course of the year, and managed to secure a 27 per cent share of its market segment.

A lot of credit goes to the Range Rover Evoque, which managed to sell 18,119 units in the UK, making it the biggest selling car in its segment over 2012.

The Land Rover Discovery also had an impressive year, with sales up by 7.4 per cent. The Range Rover – Land Rover’s flagship model – sold 4,000 units, which bodes well with the new version set to be delivered to customers this month.

The Range Rover Evoque was a critical success on launch, with the latest figures showing it had a powerful effect on consumers. Land Rover will be hoping the trend continues throughout 2013, and has high hopes for the all-new Range Rover which it unveiled in September.

The all-new Range Rover has a phenomenal amount of luxury options and is approximately 420kg lighter than previous generation models. It’s also more economical than ever before – the diesel hybrid version available later in 2013 is targeting CO2 emissions of 169g/km.

The all-new Range Rover is available from £71,295.

Jeremy Hicks, Jaguar Land Rover UK Managing Director said: “2012 was a successful year for Jaguar and Land Rover in the UK despite an increasingly competitive market.

“We look forward to building on this performance in 2013 with the introduction of more new products – including the All-New Range Rover and the Jaguar F-Type.”
