  1. WineGeek Says:

    JLR and Volvo showing “mind blowing” increases are still based on such a small number of units it is almost irrelevant to the overall market. The other adjustment to sales volume are probably just normal changes based on the length of this phenomenal sales cycle. You can’t expect it to see numbers go up every month forever, there will always be adjustment periods before sales start to increase again, possibly at a more restrained rate.

  2. Chuck Grenci Says:

    Auto sales appear to be at a plateau, and being at a pretty good level that is certainly not a bad thing; a homeostasis of sales can give the industry a chance to get its breath (then move on from there).

    Attention: to the Autoline website admins.

    I couldn’t find todays show on the autoline website (directly); I had to use the re-direct from my email reminder.

  4. Buzzerd Says:

    Question- does a federal election have any effect on car sales?
    Left or right often think if their person doesn’t get in the world will come to an end. So does he not buy and retreat to the bunker or spend it all and enjoy the last few months.

  5. OMEGATALON Says:

    Jaguar had big gains because of CUV sales; thus, one has to expect the introduction of more CUVs in the next 12-18 months.

  6. Kit Gerhart Says:

    Historically, Land Rover was the truck division of JLR, and Jaguar was the car division. It looks like Jaguar adding a truck was good for total sales numbers, but maybe, or maybe not for company profits. Did the F-Pace take sales from pricier Land Rover/Range Rover models?

  7. Chuck Grenci Says:

    I could be wrong (probably am) but I don’t see many cross shoppers between Jaguar and Land Rover (even talking the new added Jaguar F-Pace). I believe, even though the companies are ‘allied’ that the buyers (for the most part) are loyal to their brand, and a Jaguar buyer would not automatically look to Land Rover (if in the market for a SUV/CUV). Maybe, more so, in Great Britain, but doubtful in the North American market. Just an opinion.

  8. Kit Gerhart Says:

    You could be right. The thing I see is the F-Pace, and the much worse, and only a little less expensive Evoque sitting next to each other at a dealer. As you indicate, though,Jaguar and LR have their own “images,” and buyers may not cross shop much.
