|Sales of JLR cars also rose 27 per cent year on year during the third
quarter of 2013, meaning the manufacturer sold a total of 112,172
The firm is currently headquartered in Whitley, Coventry. It also has four other facilities for research and development, manufacturing and vehicle assembly in the UK. This includes its branch at Wolverhampton. The firm announced just last month that it would be recruiting 1,400 workers to this branch over the next few years and this new announcement could signal even more jobs growth.
Talking about the positive performance of the brand, chief executive of the firm, Ralf Seph, attributed the rise to high car quality. He told liverpoolecho.co.uk: "Our financial performance for this and the preceding quarters is a testament to the quality of Jaguar Land Rover's award-winning product offerings which continue to meet the exacting standards demanded by our customers around the world."
Sales of the brand may have been fuelled by the Range Rover Sport, as well as the Jaguar XJ and XF, which both proved popular with car buyers last year.
