British car manufacturing companies Rolls-Royce Motor Cars and Jaguar Land Rover have both seen an annual increase in sales in 2016. While the former said its 2016 sales were the second highest ever in its 113-year history, JLR said sales crossed the half-a-million benchmark for the very first time.
Roll-Royce, which is owned by German automaker BMW, said it had delivered a total of 4,011 cars to customers in more than 50 countries, which was up 6% from 2015. Barring the Middle East, Rolls-Royce said it achieved record sales in all global regions with the Americas retaining the top region.

Other highlights by the company, which has a global dealership network of 136, was that 2016 had successful new product launches such as its Dawn, Wraith Black Badge and Ghost Black Badge models. Also, while 2016 saw the creation of 100 new jobs at its headquarters, its Goodwood manufacturing plant is ready for new models amid major investment, Rolls-Royce said.
Speaking on the same, Torsten Müller-Ötvös, CEO at Rolls-Royce said in a statement, “This remarkable result emphatically affirms the global appeal of the very finest British luxury goods to the world’s most discerning patrons. Rolls-Royce is a true Great British manufacturing success story, one driven by the hard work and ingenuity of the men and women employed at our Centre of Luxury Excellence in Goodwood, West Sussex.”
Meanwhile, the other British car maker, JLR, saw sales jump 20% on-year to 583,313 in 2016. While this is equivalent to more than one JLR vehicle being sold in a minute, it follows JLR enjoying seven consecutive years of growth since being sold to Indian automaker Tata Motors in 2008.
While JLR sales have historically been dominated by its Range Rover and Land Rover divisions, 2016 saw Jaguar’s contribution grow higher than previous years and close to that of the other two divisions. This was amid the increased demand for the Jaguar F-Pace 4X4.
Sales of the SUV saw a 77% on-year increase to 148,730 vehicles. Meanwhile, sales from its Land Rover division increased just 8% to 434,583 cars. Region-wise, China was the top-performing market with sales up 31% in December alone, according to The Telegraph.
These improved sales figures come at a time when the UK is witnessing a lot of uncertainty amid the Brexit decision. It follows Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SSMT) warning recently that Britain’s car market has peaked and could be set for a decline in sales in 2017.
Range Rover SUV for a 2018 model, His Royal Highness will find a host of minor technology changes, new equipment, and tweaks to the exterior design—even if the big Range Rover’s water-wading, ” Up front, a new grille design, LED headlights, and a restyled hood effect a mild makeover with influences from the new Range Rover Velar. A revised lower bumper feeds more air to the front brakes, which allowed engineers to spec new hardware that produces less dust; that should keep the six new aluminum wheel designs looking cleaner for longer. Wide exhaust outlets and new LED taillights round out the exterior changes.
Squint, Pinch, and Zoom to Tell the Difference
Inside, the Range Rover gains a reconfigured 12.0-inch instrument cluster with more customizable displays, as well as the Velar’s Touch Pro Duo infotainment system that features two 10.0-inch touchscreens on the center stack, with the bottom screen controlling climate, seating, vehicle settings, and Terrain Response modes. The upper unit, which has a traditional home screen with navigation and audio controls, can be physically tilted to alleviate glare. Swiping a finger can even send information from one screen onto the other. A 10.0-inch-wide head-up display projects clearer, high-res images on the windshield. A couple of knobs remain, though most dashboard and steering-wheel buttons have been replaced by touch-capacitive sensors. Drivers can wave a hand by the rearview mirror to open and close the mesh sunroof shade. Based on how gimmicky hand motions get in the BMW 5- and 7-series sedans, we’re glad that this is the only gesture function available. You’ll need to place a finger on a screen to power-fold the rear seats when you’re away from the hatch area—either the one in the dash or the one on the InControl Remote phone app.
Speaking of seats, they’re even kinglier than before. A five-mode massage—including simulated hot stones—is baked into thicker, wider backrests. All armrests are heated, and on long-wheelbase models with Rear Executive Class Seating, so are the calf and footrests. The seat controls (with up to 24-way movement) shift to the door panels, which can be trimmed with one of four new veneers. Land Rover replaced the Autobiography’s four-seat configuration and fixed rear center console with a power-folding rear armrest that features a power-extended section for revealing the cupholders. LED ambient lighting divides the ceiling, doors, and footwells into three separate zones. 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity, larger cubbies, air ionization, and an improved refrigerator to “rapid cool” four 16.9-ounce bottles to 41 degrees Fahrenheit are also on board. Thicker window glass better insulates occupants from the world outside. All the expected safety technologies are here, too, along with some unexpected ones such as blind-spot alerts when rear passengers exit the vehicle.
