Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar Land Rover
In between, Mercedes-Benz and Jaguar Land Rover also contributed to the sector with impressive numbers. Both companies performed well last month, posting sales numbers of 1,330 and 270 units respectively. When it comes to last year’s performance, Jaguar Land Rover managed only 221 units in January.
