    Unhappy JLR smashes the 500,000 sales barrier in 2016

    JLR sold more than one vehicle a minute in 2016, great news for the company.

    Jaguar Cars sales - 148,730
    Land Rover sales - 434,583

    It's on BBC News this morning. Clearly the F-Pace has made a big difference to Jaguar. They now cover the market for up-market cars, whereas the previous absence of an SUV meant a large proportion of the market was closed to them.

    Still a long way to go in order to catch BMW who sold 251,577 cars in the UK alone last year. This makes the UK its fourth biggest market
    behind the USA,China and Germany. Great news for BREXIT.

    BMW sells 20 different model lines, Jaguar sells 5.

    It's a good start for Jaguar with the new model range and their best sales in a long time.

    Bit of figure massaging there ?? " Trust no one " I doubt JLR could produce that many in a year . Probably export stock , older stuff finally moved off old Airfield compounds > Still unbelieveable . Same as Brits bought 2.5 million new cars last year ?? Brollocks !! no they didn't .
    X 400 " 2.5 " Spirit " LE Auto . JR green 2005 .Petrol X type

    " Trust no One "

    Diesel fumes are detrimental to dogs , kids & old people .....So not that bad really , are they ?

    I see you have had the proverbial "thumbs up" from Jim though I am not offering any criticism but merely observing they have
    a long way to go. I suppose this will be aided by the Jaguar factory in China and the proposed one in Slovakia though the position
    is further complicated by Brexit which Tata reckon will cost Jaguar £1 billion per year, how long before they turn up at Downing Street
    with the begging bowl ?

    Like I said earlier, it won't be long before the BREXIT begging bowl is presented at Downing Street no matter how many cars they sell.
    I welcome manufacturing jobs in the UK and I salute the progress of JLR, TATA as a company is a different matter

    I'm more likely to believe small business than Big business ... MG sold 500 GS's in 176 days . Fastest selling car oin UK ! Best thing , it can do anything an X pace can do for £14---£18 .000 ...Why pay £40.000 for on a Car that wont fit in your garage or on a modern driveway ??
