Car sales were up nearly 32% in the UK in October, but that's NOTHING compared to Rover's numbers...
Land Rover sold 2855 vehicles in October, 2009, which marks an astounding 89% increase in sales overall from October 2008. Even if you're still not convinced that the economy is finally on an upswing, don't try and argue doom and gloom with a Rover salesperson.
ALL of the models saw a rise in sales with Defender up 25%, Freelander 2 up 55 %, Discovery up 112 %, Range Rover up 43% and the Range Rover Sport - wait for it - up 210%!
John Edwards, managing director, Land Rover UK, could not remain quiet: “It’s great to see the market up over 30 percent and we’re excited to achieve an 89 percent rise in October versus last year. It demonstrates what an outstanding success the new 2010 model year vehicles have been and proves the importance of having new products in an ever competitive market.”
Land Rover currently sells in over 170 markets around the world. The UK is currently Land Rover’s largest market, but now that they've been introduced into the lucrative Indian market, that may soon change... for the better. Looks like Tata Motor's little investment is starting to pay off, big time!
