Much like most leading luxury carmakers operating in the country, JLR India – formerly Jaguar Land Rover India – has reported a stunning rise in sales in the first quarter of the financial year. Between April and June (Q1 FY2024), JLR India retailed 1,048 vehicles, which is more than twice the number of vehicles it sold during the same period in 2023. This is in line with what the rest of the luxury car industry has witnessed, with Mercedes-Benz and BMW also reporting their best quarterly sales in the first half of 2023.

The present orders will cover more than six months of sales, says JLR India.
