JLR has been one of the hardest hit car-makers in the semiconductor shortage and the production slowdown has hit sales.

In Australian figures from VFACTS, Jaguar sales are down 24.7 per cent to the end of May with 342 deliveries, while Land Rover saw 2197 sales, down 25.8 per cent compared with the same period in 2021.
