VAG is rebounding massively post its WLTP debacle, in Europe, and most other parts of the world, and the e-tron is doing its bit, especially in Holland - Nov '19 registrations:
- 168 e-trons is not too shabby.
BMW doing very nicely too, thanks to the sales-smash 3-Series and 262 registered i3s:
Hyundai killing it with the Kona, many of which will be PHEV and BEV:
Jaguar, collapsed, due to the false high from the BiK cars this time last year:
- without those 88 I-Paces, Jaguar may as well pack up and go home in Holland.
Selling junk like the XE and XF against sublime stuff like the 3-Series is beyond even JLR's, the global media's and the UK state's brainwashing. Pack it in lads, you've been well and truly rumbled.
The Dutch don't even swallow the crap about 'Royal Range Rovers', and 'Best 4x4xfar Land Rovers' anymore:
- the Land Rover numbers should be jumping off the page, due to huge rises from the 'new' Evoque and DSport, compared to Nov '18, not this near 40% fall.
The Sport and the Full-fat were JLR's only true money spinners, and now they've been eaten alive by the new, excellent X5, Audi Q8, BMW X7, Urus, Cullinan, etc, etc, etc.
JLR are telling UK taxpayers to keep JLR and Tata afloat until the new cars, replacing these 2012/2013 geriatrics, both of course on the 2003 XJ platform, arrive in 2022. Yep, and the other one's got bells on it.
JLR's gone, guys. The I-Pace is a sideshow compared to the collapse of the main business - XE, XF, RR twins etc.
The I-Pace's job was to cover over all this - collapse since 2015/16 at JLR - and get the whole thing sold.
Will someone grown up and not a congenital liar in UK public life deal with this.
I will work for a 'Next gen JLR', a 'Next gen UK', but not until the current shower of sh!t is cleaned out and we start dealing with reality.
