Looking at individual models, the Evoque continues its barnstorming run, with sales of 61,000 units already in 2013, while the Freelander 2 continues to deliver a strong performance with retail sales for the period up 28%.
With the first (UK and Euro) deliveries of the new Range Rover Sport set for this month, this heavily re-engineered and re-designed model should enjoy a strong second half to 2013.
In June, Land Rover sold 27,165 vehicles up 2% despite the run out of Range Rover Sport. Freelander 2 was again a strong performer with retails up 13%, and Discovery 4 continues to deliver, up 9%.
Regional performances for June are as follows: Asia Pacific up 36%, UK up 10%, China region was flat and both North American and Europe showed minor softening as a direct result of the Range Rover Sport run out.
