Jaguar Land Rover has recorded its best ever April as the luxury car-maker’s global sales continue to grow.
The firm sold 28,503 vehicles representing an increase of 12 per cent over the same month in 2012.
Both brands performed equally well over the month, with Jaguar and Land Rover experiencing the same percentage increase.

April sales were up in every major region, with Asia Pacific seeing the biggest spike with an increase of 37 per cent.
Sales in the UK were up by 32 per cent, while in China they increased by 10 per cent.
Increases in North America and Europe were six per cent and two per cent respectively, while other overseas markets saw an 11 per cent increase.
The record month means the company has also enjoyed a highly successful first four months of 2013, with sales up 21 per cent in the Asia Pacific region, 20 per cent in the UK, 18 per cent in China, 13 per cent in North America, eight per cent in Europe and 22 per cent in other overseas markets.
Phil Popham, Jaguar Land Rover’s director of group sales operations said: “This is a positive start to our second quarter sales and continues the growth trend seen in the first three months of the year.
“Sales of the Jaguar XF remain buoyant across many of our key markets and we are seeing the positive impact of the all new Range Rover with approaching 15,000 cars sold in the first four months of this year.”
