About 5,171 units of BMW were sold during the first half of 2018. While the remaining trinity, Audi, is yet to release its sales figures, VOLVO recorded a threefold increase in its sales volumes.

Both Jaguar and Land Rover contributed equally towards driving sales. However, volume drivers were Land Rover Discovery Sport, Jaguar XE, and Jaguar F-Pace.

The Brexit Clouds

Following Britain's surprise call to withdraw membership from the European Union, Automakers like Jaguar Land Rover are yet to evaluate the full impact of the move. In case of a possible increase in operational costs post, JLR may contemplate on shifting production centers to other countries.
