Tata Motors-owned Jaguar Land Rover India today opened the bookings for the new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport models, which will be launched later in the year.

The company earlier this month had said it would ride in 10 new models to the country this fiscal year, riding high on a 83 per cent jump in sales in FY18.

"With the Model Year 2018 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport, we have refined and honed our flagship models with technologies and features that have raised the benchmark once again," Rohit Suri, president and managing director at Jaguar Land Rover India said in a statement.

These new models come with a host of features like the Pixel-laser LED headlights, a new Atlas mesh grille design and Touch Pro Duo infotainment.

The Land Rover range in the country includes the Discovery Sport which has starting price of Rs 43.80 lakh, the Range Rover Evoque (Rs 51.83 lakh), the All-New Discovery (Rs 71.38 lakh), the New Range Rover Velar (Rs 80.92 lakh), the Range Rover Sport (Rs 99.48 lakh) and the Range Rover (Rs 174.29 lakh).

JLR has 27 authorised outlets in the country, and had sold 83 per cent more units in FY18 at 4,609 units against 2,514 units in the previous fiscal year.

"Our sales, which jumped 83 per cent in FY18 were driven almost equally by the Jaguar and Land Rover brands," Suri had told PTI earlier this month.

The company's new products such as the fifth-generation all-new Land Rover Discovery and the New Range Rover Velar have been received very well in the market, he had said, adding besides, other models like Jaguar XE, XF and F-Pace and Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque have also done well.

Suri had said the company will have 10 new products lined up for FY19, though it is not looking at entering completely new segments.

The new products could be facelifts or model year changes, he had said without disclosing details.
