Over the last six months, we saw a marked improvement in China, where intensive work with our retailers, combined with significant process and product improvements are starting to gain traction,” JLR Chief Commercial Officer Felix Brautigam said.
Elsewhere, adverse market conditions continued to affect the industry but encouragingly in North America the company closed last year successfully with a new record year, he added.
In December, the company’s retail sales were boosted by China (up 26.3 percent year-on-year), a sixth successive month of double-digit growth, Brautigam said.
