Strong February sales for Land Rover

Land Rover is gearing itself up for new releases in the near future, with positive figures regarding the number of new vehicles registered in the United Kingdom having been released.

The British car brand will no doubt be pleased with its sales numbers in the UK, as data released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show a marked improvement over the company’s sales and market share figures, on both a monthly and year to date basis.

In February 2013, a total of 1,106 new Land Rover vehicles were registered in dealerships throughout the UK, marking a huge 33.57 per cent improvement over the 828 models registered last February, in 2012.

Also improving was the company’s monthly market share, with Land Rover managing to obtain a 1.66 per cent share of the UK car market; again improving upon last year’s February market share figure of 1.34 per cent.

In the year to date, Land Rover has witnessed an increase of its new car sales from 4,320 units, at this point last year, to a significantly larger 5,771. This marks an improvement of 33.59 per cent, something which the manufacturer will no doubt be proud of.

Furthermore, as with the February figures, Land Rover has increased its market share percentage this year, when compared to the year to date figure at this point last year.

Land Rover has taken 2.74 per cent of the UK car market, in the year to date, with its strong sales volume. At the end of February 2012, Land Rover had achieved a smaller 2.27 per cent of the year to date UK car market.

2013 has already provided a platform for a huge Land Rover release and will do so again throughout the rest of the year.

Along with the recently launched new Range Rover, the company is expected to provide eager car enthusiasts and future customers with the first reveal of the new-generation Range Rover Sport, later on this month.

The new 2013 Range Rover was released to worldwide acclaim and Land Rover will expect the new-generation Range Rover Sport to generate a similarly large level of interest as its sister model.
