Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) India has achieved its highest-ever sales in the last five years. It reported selling 4,436 vehicles, representing a year-on-year (YoY) growth of 81 per cent in the last financial year, which ended March 31, 2024. JLR India says this is one of its best performances since its official entry into the Indian market in 2009. The company attributed this growth to the Land Rover Defender and the Range Rover, which saw a YoY increase of 120 and 160 per cent, respectively. Moreover, the Range Rover Evoque recorded a 55 per cent YoY growth, while the 2024 Discovery Sport witnessed a 50 per cent increase in the previous year. 

Speaking of the Discovery Sport, JLR launched the 2024 iteration of the luxury SUV in the Indian market in January, with prices starting at Rs 67.90 lakh (ex-showroom). The new SUV comes with two engine options: a 2.0-litre petrol engine and a 2.0-litre diesel engine. The former features a 48V mild-hybrid system and delivers 245hp and 365Nm of torque, while the latter makes 201bhp and 430Nm of peak torque. The power is sent to all wheels through a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
