For June, overall per-vehicle Jaguar sales increased a seasonally adjusted 15.5% to hit 7,595. The luxury line saw its biggest boost in sales from China (up 68.3% to 2,363 from June 2013), which is now also its largest market. This time last year, North America was Jaguar's largest market, with the U.K. and China both scrambling for second place.
Land Rover managed to beat out Jaguar in both growth and numbers, soaring ahead a seasonally adjusted 17.8% to 31,999 vehicles for June 2014. China hasn't let Jaguar have all the fun, and has also increased its Land Rover purchases to 9,191, 58.3% more than last June. By comparison, North America sales have increased 18%, while United Kingdom sales have held steady with minimal 1.7% growth.
For the two luxury lines combined, total vehicles sold during June came to 39,594 – a 17.4% increase over June 2013.
