Jaguar Land Rover said quarterly revenue to Sept. 30 rose 30.3 percent to 2.9 billion pounds (3.4 billion euros), as booming demand in China continued to help drive sales of the company's models.
The UK-based carmaker, owned by India's Tata Motors, said on Monday pre-tax profits in the same period increased 9 percent to 287 million pounds.
The company said it benefited from strong sales of its new Range Rover Evoque with 7,700 models sold since its launch, and by demand for a version of the Jaguar XF with a 2.2-liter diesel engine.
Jaguar Land Rover said unit sales grew 13.8 percent to 130,090 in the first half.
Last week, the company said it would create 1,000 jobs at its factory in Solihull near Birmingham, England, to help increase production of the Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Discovery and Defender models.
Earlier this year, the carmaker said it will build a 355 million pound engine plant in Wolverhampton, England, that will potentially create thousands of jobs.
Tata Motors bought the company from Ford Motor Co. for £1.5 billion in June 2008.
Tata profit falls
JLR's parent company Tata Motors Ltd. posted a 15 percent drop in quarterly profit on Monday, missing analyst estimates, as sales of its cars in India fell and raw material costs surged.
Second-quarter net income declined to 18.8 billion rupees ($373 million) from 22.2 billion rupees a year earlier, Tata Motors said. Sales rose 27 percent to 359.4 billion rupees.
Tata Motors's passenger vehicle sales in India fell 22 percent in the last quarter as rising interest rates and fuel prices reduced demand.
