China was down 9.5 per cent as the reduction in import duties on passenger vehicles, starting 1 July, continued to result in deferred purchases as well as increased incentives in advance of that date.

Other luxury brands also did well with the market leader Mercedes-Benz clocking 12.4 per cent more volumes at 8,061 units and the number two player BMW selling 13 per cent more units at 5,171. "This was largely offset by increases in sales in the United Kingdom, the U.S. and our overseas region", Jaguar Land Rover Chief Commercial Officer Felix Brautigam said.

Land Rover range sales declined by 1.5 percent to 35,721 units in June 2018, it added. Jaguar wholesales for the month were 10,354 vehicles, while Land Rover wholesales for the month were 27,136 vehicles.
