'Icon', as successful as The Gamechanger, and every other 'stunning' JLR, besides possibly the Full-fat.

Haven't we been told/brainwashed in the past couple of weeks how stunningly successful The Icon is? First we had the Norman Wisdom creature at Carwow, in his mid forties but thinks he's still eighteen, telling the world how The Icon has a 1 year waiting time, then we had Mardell, JLR CFO, 'briefing' the media/analysts on the inability of JLR to keep up with Icon demand, then we had the 'independent' 'freelancer' Nick Gibbs verbatim passing on this 'news', and then we had all the other lickspittle, vermin 'global' media dutifully doing the same - relaying His Master's Voice's lies/fraud, with the likes of the execrable Carscoops just yesterday plastering it all over their front page:

JLR Can't Keep Up With Demand For Defender, Plug-In Hybrids | Carscoops


Two lies at least here. The first is that if it was chip shortages, JLR would be shut just like every other, real carmaker - Daimler, BMW, VAG etc laying off tens/hundreds of thousands, most/all of their plants affected.

JLR is still producing. The prioritising of Land Rover/Solihul, doesn't wash, Castle Brom was closed already - for the last 2/3/4 years - and Solihull was already representing at least two-thirds of JLR's production.

This 'can't keep up', 'waiting list/delivery time 1 year', is jst JLR-Media, again, up to their usual tricks - lies - fraud.

They did the same, without blushing, with The Gamechanger. Remember '25,000 orders', form the likes of Cropley, in summer 2018?

JLR still hasn't sold, legitimately, 25,000 I-Paces since - around 4,000 max in Holland, almost all right at the start, around 5,000 max in Norway, in total, over the last almost 3 years, and around 5,000 in the UK, to-date - non-self-register, non-NHS, non-Whitehall, etc.

Around 15,000 max in total, after almost 3 years, against the liar-for-hire Cropley's mid-2018 '25,000 confirmed orders'.

They're doing the exact same thing, MO, now, with the sunk without trace 'Icon'.

How can I be so sure, give the overwhelming 'evidence' to the contrary - see above?

Well, guess what. Yesterday evening, and this morning, I heard on Uncle Rupert's News International radio network thing - 'Talk Radio', 'Talk Sport', 'Times Radio' etc etc - an advert, er several - for 'The Icon' - the 'New' Defender - er, almost 2 years old, and just a reskin of the 2017 Disco5, itself a reskin of the 2013 RRSport, etc.

The ad goes along the lines of 'the open road... , the closed road, the offroad diversion', etc, etc - i.e., the Icon can go anywhere - yeah right, try that in the most camera-covered, surveilled Prison in the world - aka 'The United Kingdom'.

But, the point is, why would they, JLR and its media mates, co-conspirators, be advertising, having to advertise, 'The Icon', when as Mardell, Gibbs, the Norman Wisdom creature, the whole 'global' medai all as one, shout from the rooftops that it's sold-out, unavailable for '1 year waiting list'?

Why?

Are they happy to throw (UK taxpayer) money away, wasting it on completely unnecessarily, advertising and promoting the Icon?

Or... , is The Icon in the exact same situation as The Gamechanger around spring/summer 2019, i.e. 2 year ago, when it too was announced by JLR-Media as a 'stunning success', but... , no one other than JLR itself, and HM.Gov in several guises, were buying it - a complete, massive, biggest ever to-date for JLR, and possibly all-time British motor industry flop?

Er, yep. Uncle Rupert(Murdoch) is happy to receive the UK taxpayers' shekels, via JLR, to promote this turkey. Just like JLR has obviously given Rupert's News Corp., or whatever name it now goes under, other £millions/tens of millions, since around 2018, to have his announcers/'journalists', tell the world how 'they have bought x JLR product', and how 'awesomely fantastic it is' - latest, the gimp Giles Coren, on a massive bung with his cock and bull story about his nicked Gamechanger - plasteed all over Twitter - part of the JLR-New Corp promotion deal - we give Uncle Rupert tens of £millions of our money to have the multi-billinaire promote garbage Indian-owned products.

There is no '1 year waiting list' for the Icon.

You don't advertise, almost non-stop, the 'most successful thing evah!'.

Would Ford spend $millions/tens of millions promoting the new, er, genuinely massively sold-out, till Kingdom comes, Bronco? Or the new F-150 Lightning, which has taken more GENUINE orders in a couple of hours than the Gamechanger AND Icon have taken since 2018, by a factor of 2/3?

JLR-Media is/are desperate. They know their collars won't be felt by Dick's goons, or the SFO, so they just double-down on the only thing they know, have to hand - in yer face fraud - making Sanjeev Gupta, Dr Michael Lynch, Cameron, and so on, look like absolute smal-time amateurs. JLR's fraud runs into the tens of £billions, not tens/hundreds of £millions.

JLR is as miserable, depressing, and unending as the 'Globully Warmed' British weather - another monumental fraud, played on the 95%+ cretinous-level Brits, who swallow it wholesale.

'Icon', my ar$e. 'I con' - yes.

Wakey, wakey, fatboy Spaffer and emaciated Street - your Indian-UK Raj is brewing another corker - you might have to do some work:

The date gives the game away:

'24 DEC 2019 '


- long before the Plandemic was an official thing - so JLR/Indian oligarchs/Spaffer&Street/Media can't blame Cov Press's, sorry, 'Liberty Pressing Solutions''s collapse on the Scamdemic.

The boss, CovPress CEO Doulgas Dawson, almost spelt it out in black and white, for the cheap seats:

'He said issues in the automotive sector - including ongoing Brexit uncertainty and the difficulties facing Jaguar Land Rover (Liberty Pressing Solutions’ biggest customer)'

- got it?

CovPress's falling over, sorry, the genius tycoon's Sanjeev Gupta's Liberty Pressing Solution's crash into total bankruptcy, was caused direclty and ~99.99% completely by the crash into total bankruptcy of JLR, which started years before, in 2015/2016.

Gupta was sold a pup - when he/Greensill/Credit Suisse bought it in 2017.

JLR would have been telling CovPress, its MD, sales manager anf finance head honcho, that JLR was headed for 1 million+ sales by late 2018, 2020 at the latest, and they needed to invest big, up capacity, and generally just hang on to JLR's world-beating, stunning-success coattails.

Mugs/Mugs-cowards. JLR had already crashed, at least a year before Gupta bought CovPress.

They couldn't have been that thick. Maybe they could. But at least one of them would have spotted what Speth's JLR was up to, but kept shtum, and just rode the gravytrain, bonuses, inflated salaries, etc, knowing they would jump ship before the balloon finally went up - typical British management in other words - generally useless, not very bright, or venal and craven, thinking only of themselves, and the short-term.

Coventry manufacturer Liberty Pressing Solutions put up for sale


- shouldn't the real big story in the media be the threat to 'The UK's biggest automotive manufacturer', with the precarious predicament of a key supplier, which if it was to fall over, finds no buyer, creditors to Greensill demand it be liquidated, would mean absolute jeopardy for JLR?

Or am I missing something?

Isn't the obvious thing to do that Tata, JLR's owner of course, buys Liberty Pressing Solutions(LPS)?

I'm sure the Tatas know Gupta.

Why isn't Tata doing this, done it already?

Do they know something, that like JLR, LPS is a basket case, zero worth, as its predominant customer has reduced its deland schedules to LPS by 80-90% since 2016?

Or, is Tata(group) all mouth and no trousers. They actually haven't got two pennies to rub together - all the 'tens of $billions wealth' paper wealth, most of which is Tata itself buying, therefore pumping its own share prices, or having third parties/proxies do it for it, and the bought and paid analysts doing likewise with Buy, buy,, buy! recommendations every 5 minutes.

Let's face it. Tata Steel is bust. Tata's JLR is bust. Tata TCS is the only thing of any worth.

Tata is just an older and larger version of Gupta's/Liberty Group's ponzi/fraud scheme.

These Indian 'geniuses', like Lord Paul's Caparo group a decade or so ago, with their unmatched 'flair for business', are just chancers/low-level crooks, whose psycho greed drives them to 'acquire'/steal £billions/tens of billions, rather than knock off the corner shop.

They know they're 99.99999999999999% immune to the hand cuffs treatment, and that the UK is thee global oligarchs' playground - if you have 'money' - on paper - of over say £5 billion, you have a lifteime Stay out of Jail/Be ennobled card.

'Lessons will be learned' will be on UK's headstone - 'died circa 1979'.

If the ordinary pleb doesn't object, doesn't even notice/care, why should the looting stop?

Why isn't JLR throwing a lifeline to one of its key suppliers(Liberty Pressing Solutions), if Kwazy, Spaffer and the gang won't?:

Kwasi Kwarteng: Liberty Steel nationalisation lifeline ‘unlikely to happen’


Why isn't the media pointing out this obvious action?

Surely it would be chickenfeed for now £hundreds of millions/billions a quarter-earning JLR, swimming in cash - as Bollore. Mardell, Gibbs etc have just, in the last couple of weeks, been telling the media, top financial analysts, and ratings agencies?

What's the holdup? Surely the cheque should have been winging its way from Coventry/Gaydon to Gupta's Mayfair offices last week.

Also, it's likely Gupta's Liberty Aluminium Technologies company/division, of Coventry/Kidderminster, has business with JLR. Again, why isn't JLR stepping in and securing this?

What am I missing?

Come on you media scum, forget the 'Royal'/BBC bollox 'story' - got-up diversion for Spaffer's beheading by slaphead Cummings this week - and the standard 24/7/365 Corona Bollox for the theartre of the plebs, and report on something real - why is the 'biggest automotive maker/manufacturer in the UK' not smashing down the door of Gupta, to buy one of its key suppliers, to ensure its can have production continuity - unless... , JLR actually is making very, very little, and doesn't actually need LPS, or hardly any other supplier, as it is drowning in stock, of both parts and finished cars - whilst feeding the same media scum stories of 1 year waiting times, for their 'Stunners'.

Has Rupert of Haymarket given up the ghost on JLR, unlike Ruper of rags? Or has JLR only so much UK taxpayer money to fling to multi-millionaires/billionaires, and Rupert de Rags is now getting the lion's share, hence Autocar barely managing even the appearance of 'JLR Weekly' recently?:

It's amazing what misfortune is befalling this factory, with the world gagging for its 500k/yr production - not:

Staatsschutz ermittelt - Brandstiftung?: Armdicke Stromkabel brennen nahe Tesla-Werk

- a fat, mentally ill, rubber-faced man with a wig was seen running away.

In other news, VAG is launching one new EV, genuinely world-beating/-leading product, almost every day - maybe the two things are connected.

Tesla bilks/cons/commits criminal fraud on its half-wit cult customers - the Norway fine - almost crickets from the 'global' media, buried/memory-holed within 24 hours certainly, the genuine world-beating global EV maker, VAG, is still, over 5 years on, pilloried, almost daily, by the same w*nkstain 'global' media for this most heinous in all humnan history crime-of-crimes.

And still some plebs swallow what the media tells them - Dieselgate, Tesla/JLR bestest things evah", CAGW, Plandemic, Spaffer Our Dear Leader, 'Royals', etc, etc.

God help us.

well... , you'd have to be a retard to have chosen The Gamechanger in the first place. Zero spatial awareness, not knowing right/left reverses when, er, reversing:


Perhaps it's 'Chewy', demonstrating how awesome it is off-road.

Maybe it's Mat Halfcock, manoeuvring for a leadership bid.

'JLR' -see Fiction department.

What do you do, when you have a company whose products are 15-25 years old, your 'new' stuff, the Gamechanger(bodged 2016 F-Pace) and Icon(refrocked Disco5), are 5 years old, and your latest Gamechanger/Saviour/Killer product, the 'New' Range Rover, is disappearing into the distance faster than a Spaffer 'cast-iron' promise on realeasing the Plebs being from their permanent Lockdown?

You get 'His Master's Voice' on the case of course, 'independent' Nick Gibbs, and you repeat 'news', that's all a pack of lies anyway, with a straight face, regardless of the actuality of it.

Headline, front-page news on what has become the new JLR Weekly, now that Autocar has mostly given up the ghost, Automotive 'News':

May 20, 2021 12:02 AM

Land Rover Defender and Discovery to get separate platforms

The next Discovery will switch to Jaguar Land Rover's so-called 'battery-native' platform

Nick Gibbs

- I could have sworn we were almost going into June.

But then, in Our Dear Leader Spaffer's world and JLR as 'World-beating' for eternity, groundhog day is every day, for the plebs - 'just a few more weeks, and we'll release all the restrictions' - scout's honour, you credulous, moronic, jabbed, about to be culled, useless-eater Plebs. Signed S.Paffer, Aged 5 and 3/4, 'King of the World'.

There is absolutely ZERO news from JLR. That tends to be the case with dead things.

Not many people report on graveyards - except Gibbs, of course.

The media, lickspittle invertebrates like Gibbs and his colleagues, continue, though, because there are brats to be paid for at private school, and the one who wears the trousers, with their beta-male husbands, ready to dump said beta male, if her kids have to go to the local sink-estate comprehensive.

Britain is destroyed by the insane house prices, and insane school fees.

The average middle-class pleb will do anything - including selling their eternal soul - to keep paying the mortgage, and those £40k/yr/per brat school fees.

JLR is dead, but the pretence and appearance must be kept up = like a propped up corpse, because the house prices, and all that flows in UK life from going to a private school, must be maintained at all costs - the cost of global laughing-stock status - Spaffer, cuckolding Carrie, Halfcock, 'Royals', 'World-beating JLR', 'gobal-envy BBC', 'Global-beacon of Democracy and Freedom UK', etc, etc.

Gibbs knocking out sh!te, with a randomly generated date, as headline news, is just part of this total, national insanity - a people, country gone completely, barking mad.

As-fast, perhaps even a bit faster in the real world/non-JLR lying-fraud world, much more space inside, especially the back, and boot - especially the SUV version - fast-charges faster, real range up to 50% greater, likely rock-solid residuals for at least 18 months, as supply tries to catch up with demand, etc, etc, all for around £20k less, than 'The Gamechanger':


- game-changer on which planet, in which universe/dimension?

The ID.4(/Enyaq) has already pretty well destroyed, finished off Tesla - Model 3/Y - so the posh, 'EV It car' version, the Audi Q4 e-tron, will completely finish off what was left of the Gamechanger, and hence any pretence that JLR is relevant and not actually a completely dead thing.

The adverts for the I-Pace, and 'sold-out for a year' 'Icon', are literally non-stop on Uncle Rupert's News Corp outlets. How much has JLR bunged multi-billionaire Murdoch of our money - £50m? - before they know it all goes t!ts up?

Are the likes of JLR PR head honcho Hallett hoping they can jump from the sinking ship SS JLR to Murdoch's organisation, buying their way in with taxpayer-funded JLR?

Do bears crap in woods?

BMW is being literally throttled by Euro7('EU7'):

'Der Turbo-Vierzylinder mit 2,0 Liter Hubraum bietet statt 258 PS nur noch 245 PS, der Motor verliert also volle 10 kW oder 13 PS.

Die Ursachen für die Leistungsreduzierung finden sich wie so oft im Bereich der Abgasreinigung. Zwar war der BMW B48 in Europa schon seit Jahren mit einem Otto-Partikelfilter ausgerüstet, aber mit Einführung der Abgasnorm EU7 müssen in wenigen Jahren gerade im Bereich der Kohlenmonoxid-Emissionen noch wesentlich strengere Grenzwerte eingehalten werden.'


- if one of, if not thee best engine maker in the world is struggling... .

BMW can hold the loss, the damage, to around 5%.

JLR hasn't got a prayer - worst engine/engine-maker in the world(Ingenium), and one of, if not thee oldest production engine - the 1996 AJ-V8.

This is the real reason for the now ~12 months and counting no-show of the 'all-new' 'L460' 'New' Range Rover.

It was kicked off, around early 2016, with the 100% certainty of Speth's buddy relationship with Krueger delivering BMW's V8 to replace the ancient, no-hope of emissions compliancy AJ-V8.

Krueger's replacement, Zipse, pulled the plug on not just Project Jennifer, but the/a BMW V8 too - current, from 2009, and planned full, 4-litre replacement.

A six-cylinder, especially with hybrid boost, was powerful enough to consign the V8 to history.

This wrecked 'New Range Rover'.

JLR is left with the only option of launching a flagship, supposedly 'all-new' product, that will have at most 3 years of life - before it becomes illegal - Euro7 expected 2025 - at the latest.

They might get away with putting the 25 year old AJ-V8 in there, and making it supposedly Euro 6d or whatever compliant, but what's the point, why go to that effort, no doubt making its real power output even more pathetic - barely over 400hp in 'top spec' - with all that emissions throttling, only to have to tell the world and customers, that the car, your car, will be pulled from sale in max. 3 years. I doubt even the Home Counties Hardcore Headbangers would sign up for that - £150k+, to be worthless in a few years.

No wonder it's so quiet from JLR-Media. They're soiling their trousers, or, like Hallett, bunging millions at their next employer, before the ship fully sinks.

It all becomes clear... ..why Speth was so desperate... ...to dump Ingenium, and get BMW's engines in - especially the key/core 4-cylinder.

From the above article, what BMW's engineers have done, to meet Euro7 CO, carbon monoxide, emission level, is integrate the exhaust manifold into the head, and thus access to the engine's cooling circuit, which means the engine doesn't need overfuelling at high loads, to reduce temps., and thus produces less CO.

Yes, integrated exhaust manifold is not new, or revelatory, but doing it means at least a new head, and essentially not far short of a new engine.

This is what Speth saw and understood, around 2018-19.

He would have known, via Krueger, and probably from other former colleagues, what BMW was up to, and spotted that this would kill Ingenium stone dead.

Hence the almost out of nowhere push, in the Media, for the JLR-BMW 'Partnership', with supposed 'joint' electric motor/EDU development, engine supply - the prized 'B48' above all - and even common platforms - from around late 2019 well into last year.

What Speth dsperately needed was:

1. 'Jennifer'
2. the 'B48' - and a side dish of the diesel version.

The 'Partnership' talk was bollox, a smokescreen errected by JLR-Media to cover JLR's desperate need for engines - to stay bare minimum alive.

The EDU, common platform etc stuff, was for the birds.

Probably Bollore hadn't a clue about any of this.

Now he knows.

What's he gonna say? His illustrious predecessor laid a landmine under his chair?

He can't say anything. If he comes out and describes JLR's predicament, he gives the game away - JLR is worth pig iron - less than - a cowboy with boots, a 10 gallon hat, and no land or steers.

Hence the absolute silence from JLR, and Bollore, and Hallett, and even Cropley.

All there is is 24/7 adverts on Murdoch's networks for the 'New' I-Pace, and 'New', 'sold-out' Defender,

Wow.

Not even BL or the Phoenix Four's MG Rover went this low.

Speth is the man who should be in front of a parlaimentary select committee - if the firing squad is unavailable - not sideshow Cummings.

He hopped in just in time, before all the bombs went off, and the brown stuff went everywhere.

He could dish the dirt on the Tatas, like Cummings on Spaffer, and how he was the paid mercenary to bleed the UK taxpayer dry, via Ingenium, The Gamechanger and so on, all a vehicle for channelling tens of billions of pounds, over 13 years, to Bombay billionaires, including grand larceny of the pension scheme.

'At a guess I would say about 4 gallons of water trapped under the floor with associated dead electronics. Has been with dealer for the last 3 weeks and as far as I know they still have not identified the source (beyond 'rain')

On searching the internet I discovered there is a class action in the US as there seems to be a major issue with water ingress on the new Discovery.'


- er, same car.

Obviously slung out the door, as fast as possible, for Speth to glory in this 'triumph', bringing the 'Ur' product back to life, The Icon - before he pushed off/jumped ship.

I saw a '90' way back, in public, around April 2019 - some 'engineer' brought it home.

The 'Icon'('110') was obviously 'finished' probably around early 2017 - the intention all along to sell 'two' products, 'All-New' Disco5 and The Icon, but build up the hype, anticipation, prices etc, by delaying the sister car, 'Icon', till 18-24 months after the same-car Disco5 - thus pretending it was 'All-New', an entirely separate, unique, designed expressly for offroad, vehicle - when of course it was just another JLR bodge special, the same trick/fraud they pulled with the 'bespoke' '2018' Gamechanger, er, 2016 F-Pace - and so needed several years of 'development', to 'prove the concept' - refrocking a Disco5/RRSport/... etc.

'90', the short wheelbase thing, was obviously just a cut and shut, of the Disco5 - 2012/13 Full-fat/RR Sport.

Serves the clowns who have bought them, fallen for the JLR-Media Lies/Conspiracy to commit fraud right. It was one thing for a Welsh/Yorkshire farmer to spend £10-15k buying a Land Rover back in the 1980s, and have water p!ssing in - 'the interior is fully hosedownable' after all - but it's an entirely different matter to have your toy, your pride and joy, 21 plate, £70k or more 'Icon', sat outside incubating mushrooms, and 'SWMBO' on your back for being prize prat of the year/century - giving a sizeable chunk of your money to JLR, for not much more than a cow for some magic beans.

Compete with the G-Class, charge £100k+ pricing for the V8, build a brand on 'Defender', etc - yer having a larf.

It's the same garbage as BL, 40 years ago, and the Mini Metro repelling the VW Polo and other European superminis from the White Cliffs.

The British excel at PR, advertising, marketing etc - all basically telling lies - so 'The Icon' carries this on, 40 years on - The Icon repelling the G-Class, taking on the Land Cruiser, the Ford Bronco, etc.

The reality is partriotic mugs with sodden carpets, and a dealer who couldn't care less, now he's got your money, and doesn't know how to fix it anyway, as nor does the factory 'technical' department.

Nothing changes in UK - from Mini Metro to the Icon. Same BS, lies, fraud. Just the price, charge for the con, rip-off, mushrooms.

Go back another 40 years, and Castle Brom, the massively expensive shadow factory, paid by taxpayers, was turning out absolute rubbish - when the expensive materials, aluminium, bronze, copper etc, weren't going walkabout.

More tea brewing, scratching of ar$es, than Jerry-bashing war-winning - er, the war was won/lost/fought in Russia.

One man made the difference, Max Aitken - cracked the whip - probably literally over some obdurate Brummie heads. He was half-Canadian of course.

John Egan I suppose was a poor-man's Lord Beaverbrook - kind of knocked Jaguar into shape, and Anthony Gilroy did something similar for Land Rover, when it was semi-autonomous, prior to BAe buying Rover Group.

The point is, it needs a very strong character to lead British car factories/British industry.

Speth wasn't it.

Egan and Gilroy were Irish descent/Irish respectively - tough, 'outsider' characters.

Of course William Lyons himself was similar, an outsider, and part-Irish.

There's no one in charge at JLR, and hasn't been since Carl Peter Forster left, back in 2010.

Speth was just in it for the money, and the titles, and media/establishment fawning.

We're seeing the full 'glory' of the horrible results of that now.

Another day, another mortal blow to JLR:

'We’ll need more time to confirm BMW range claims. However, we did see the equivalent of 392 miles on the digital display of the prototype when running in Eco mode. If this can be replicated in real-world driving, it’s going to be among the best in class in this particular discipline.'

- Kable's pencant for massive understatement.


So in other words, real-world range of twice The Gamechanger's.

Will be hard for even Cropley, Clarkson, Andrew English and co. to spin that.

The Gamechanger, and JLR, are now officially jokes - not in the amusing way.

The Gamechanger is, or rather was, just, wholly, ultra cynically, a shopwindow, 'come and buy us', for Tata and its JLR millstone in the mid-2010s.

It's a bodged 2016 F-Pace, which itself is just a slightly shorter, slighly lower roof version of the 2012/13 Full-fat/RRSport, whose platform goes directly back to the 2003 XJ.

You can't compete with, let alone beat, be 'world-beating', the world's best, BMW, VAG, Daimler, Hyundai-Kia etc, by knocking up a near two decade old 'bespoke' thing, and getting the 'global' media to tell saps who awesome, er, gamechanging, it is.

That works for five minutes.

It works forever on cretins, retards, the insane - like Spaffer as loveable, cuddly 'Boris'. Some people are just irredeemable idiots, who will swallow any crap, literally.

But you can't run a global business on that - 'Ultras' - patriotic saps in the Home Counties, N.Yorkshire and S.Warks.

The big boys are here. Amateur hour is over, The joke, ludicrous, patent frauds - JLR, Tesla, possibly Lucid - need to go home.

Remember, as the Tesla disciples always say, that Teslas sell by the quarter. In the last month of every quarter, a large ship with Teslas arrive, and they sell like hotcakes during that month. I also find it strange, but it seems to be true. In March a lot of Teslas were sold after a slow January and February. Then April and May have been very quiet. Let's see what happens now in June.

Remember, as the Tesla disciples always say, that Teslas sell by the quarter. In the last month of every quarter, a large ship with Teslas arrive, and they sell like hotcakes during that month. I also find it strange, but it seems to be true. In March a lot of Teslas were sold after a slow January and February. Then April and May have been very quiet. Let's see what happens now in June.
- really? - as if we don't know, can't guess?

Tesla miraculously, always, jumps up quarter-end, especially half-year end.

Tesla is a rounding error in global car industry terms. Its real share is ~0.1% - i.e. irrelevant:


- it's pumped night and day by the 'global' media, and even, especially, by 'state' broadcasters like the BBC.

It has to be, because, like Communism, it is the opposite of the natural order, or reality, a total perversion - in every sense of the word - so has to be manufactured constantly, less the spell break or wear off.

JLR is just a slighly smaller version - same schtick/garbage, but without a figurehead/messiah, to capture the public's dumbed-down imagination.

'Tesla' is a psy op - look it up. So is 'JLR'. So is the 'Pandemic'. So is CAGW, So is 100% of everything told as incontrovertible/overwhelming consensus 'fact' to the now massively moronic general population of 'advanced' countries.

China is not fully onboard with the whole Tesla thing psy op. It can blow it up any time it likes. It's a cat playing with a mouse - choosing when to finish it off - enjoying itself perhaps too much - or, unable to believe how moronic the great West has become, that the people of the once-great USA, and Europe, so easily fall for this elementary psy op, con-job BS trick - which is now 10+ years old, and threadbare, and obvious to anyone with an IQ over 80 - as measured by real tests pre say 1990.

Europe's largest market is still a disaster zone - way down on 2019 - and JLR is the disaster of this disaster zone:

50727


50728


VW group meanwhile is on fire. 'Dieselgate' - what?

Merecedes btw, is probably hurt by the changeover to the new C-Class.

Herbert Diess is the real deal - approaching legendary car-boss status. That's why you never hear about him, and his positive exploits, just Dieselgate and Cheating forever, while The Loon, with his rug, is the Messiah - all according to the 'global' media - cough, Communism.

So Jaguar is back at around one percent of the UK new car market - pretty well where it was 30 years ago, when it was two-model brand.

Take away the self-registering/-selling, and 'selling' Gamechangers to the NHS, Whitehall, 'Royals' etc, and it's at 0.5% or less - worse than the 80s, and 70s under BL.

'World-beating' indeed - about £20bn at least down the drain over the last 13 years to halve your market share.

Only in La la-land Britain - where the natives only stir over football, and celebs, or Carrie's dress/dog.

Hyundai-Kia meanwhile, is zooming up, almost 10% of the UK market, ahead of Ford and Vauxhall - wow, massive! - entirely unreported by the JLR/Tesla 'global' media.

VW group - 26% of the UK market - how that must hurt the likes of Andrew English, Jonny (Lie)berman, Angus Mackenzie, Gavin Green, Ben Oliver, Clarkson, Massey(Daily Mail), Cropley, Fatboy Saunders, Nick Gibbs, etc, etc. - to see their great life's 'work' - paid oodles of shekels to smash the Germans - reduced to ash.
