XF sales boost for Jaguar
Jaguar had a successful first quarter of 2010, with improving sales for the XF exec and XK coupe.
For the first quarter, 3514 XF were sold in the UK, up 67.2 per cent from 2102 sales. XK sales improved 25.4 per cent with 509 cars sold compared to 406 in 2009.
2522 XF models were sold in March 2010, compared to 1294 the previous year; and increase of 94.6 per cent. Meanwhile sales for the XK improved by 36.3 per cent, with 383 cars sold compared with 281 last March.
Overall Jaguar performance in the UK is up 1.1 per cent, with total sales of 3056 compared with 3024 last March; impressive figures as the X-Type has been deleted from the range and the all-new XJ does not go on sale until May.
"With more than 22,000 XFs now on the road in the UK, the growing popularity of the XF speaks for itself," Geoff Cousins, Managing Director, Jaguar UK.
"The second half of 2009 saw consecutive sales growth for the XF and at the end of the year our order book was nearly full with customers wanting an XF."
The Jaguar XF Diesel S model now features some of the unique sporting character of the high performance XFR, while prices for the entry-level 3.0-litre V6 petrol now start at £29,900.
The XF 3.0-litre diesel model is available from £34,900, while the range-topping XFR is available from £62,055.
The XK range starts at £62,500 for the 5.0 V8 petrol and the XKR starts at £75,500.
