However, Land Rover range sales declined 6.9 per cent in 2018 to 4,11,875 units, it added.


"The economic slowdown in China along with ongoing trade tensions are continuing to influence consumer confidence. The impact is being felt across several industries globally," JLR Chief Commercial Officer Felix Brautigam said.


Despite this, the company continues to work closely with retailers and is taking necessary actions to balance production with demand in order to rejuvenate sales as part of turnaround plan for the business, he added.


For December 2018, the total sales for JLR were at 52,160 units, a decline of 6.4 per cent as compared with December 2017, the company added.
