Luxury car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover has posted a 40 percent rise in sales growth across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) during the second quarter of 2013.

The company said the figures for April to June  represented a strong start to its fiscal year and included a record breaking month for sales in May.

Sales of Land Rover vehicles increased by 43 percent in the region, due mainly to the success of the All-New Range Rover. Other key sales performers were the Range Rover Evoque and the Land Rover LR4, which went up by 28 percent and 17 percent respectively.

Jaguar posted a 26 percent sales increase over the same period last year, with the MENA region its fifth largest market for the brand globally.

Sales of the Jaguar XF increased by 45 percent, along with the Jaguar F-TYPE, with both showing significant growth in the UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, the company said in a statement.

Robin Colgan, managing director for Jaguar Land Rover MENA said: "Our strong sales performance over the last quarter is a reflection of how significant this region is to the Jaguar Land Rover brand globally.

"We expect to see further growth moving forward into the year with the imminent start of sales for the All-New Range Rover Sport, our most dynamic Land Rover yet."
