By region, retail sales were marginally down in North America (-1 .5%) and also down in other markets including the UK (-6.7%), Europe (-9.6%), Overseas markets (-18.4%) and China (-26.4%) where market conditions remain challenging.

Felix Brautigam, Jaguar Land Rover Chief Commercial Officer, said: "May saw two important milestones for Land Rover with the debut of significant model updates. The brand's best-selling Discovery Sport premium compact SUV has been transformed from the ground up, making it almost a new car. Featuring the all-new Premium Transverse Architecture, it will be available with MHEV (mild hybrid electric) and PHEV (plug in hybrid electric) powertrains, which are important additions to our growing portfolio of electrified vehicles. The enhanced interior of the new Discovery Sport is highly versatile, available with seven seats and featuring the latest connectivity. The latest Range Rover, which was also revealed in May, comes with a range of upgrades. These include our new 3.0-litre straight six lngenium petrol engine with a mild hybrid electric system, as well as the innovative combination of supercharging and turbocharging technologies. Offering enhanced performance and quicker responses together with improved fuel economy, the newest Range Rover is available to order now.
"Although sales dipped at Jaguar this month, we were pleased to see the continued strong response to the award-winning I-PACE. We also launched the Jaguar E-PACE Chequered Flag edition, which generated a high level of interest with customers and commentators alike."
