January 17, 2013 17:38 IST

JLRTata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover today reported 32 per cent increase in sales at 2,393 units in 2012.

The company had sold 1,813 cars in 2011, JLR said in a statement.

"Despite difficult economic circumstances and a general slowdown in the Indian car market, we have continued to grow our sales," Jaguar Land Rover India VP Rohit Suri said.

The coming year will see the introduction of further new and refreshed products and the company is confident of increasing its share of the Indian luxury car market, he added.

During 2012, Land Rover launched luxury SUV, the Range Rover.

The Jaguar F-Type, an all new two seater sports car, will be launched in India later this year, along with model year changes for the XF and XJ, the statement said.

In India, the Jaguar product range includes the XF, XFR, XKR, XKR-S and the XJ.

For Land Rover, the product range includes the Freelander 2, which is assembled at Pune, Discovery 4, Range Rover Evoque, Range Rover Sport and the all-new Range Rover.

Earlier this week the company had reported 30 per cent increase in global sales at 3,57,773 units across 177 markets worldwide led by China, UK and US.
