In September, Jaguar sold 8,462 units, up 35 per cent reflecting strong demand for all XF derivatives, JLR said, adding Land Rover sold 34,719 units, up 13 per cent.

Commenting on the performance, Jaguar Land Rover Group Sales Operations Director Andy Goss said: "This has been another record month for Jaguar and Land Rover with significant sales growth across all major regions".

The XF has delivered a September sales record thanks to an enhanced engine line-up and the introduction of the Sportbrake and the XJ continues to do well, particularly in China and North America, he added.
