Evoque lifts JLR sales high

Sales of Range Rover's Evoque have underpinned an upsurge in Jaguar Land Rover sales last month, by 49 percent to 32,257 units.

The Evoque has been an unqualified success for the brand, to the point that the company is finding it difficult to meet demand. The Irish distributor says availability is the biggest problem.

Jaguar Land Rover is owned by India-based Tata Motors, and the boost in sales has helped to offset slower growth for Tata vehicles in its home country.
