Lexus Australia: Strong sales driven by hybrid demand

Lexus has defied the downwards trend in the luxury market throughout 2019, and it's crediting its range of hybrid vehicles for the results. Toyota's luxury arm was up 5.9 per cent in May and has exactly matched 2018 sales year-to-date. That's in stark contrast with BMW (down 3.8 per cent year-to-date), Audi (down 29 per cent), and Mercedes-Benz cars (down 14 per cent).

Jaguar Land Rover suffers massive fourth-quarter loss

Jaguar Land Rover has posted a £3.4 billion ($6.2 billion) loss for the fourth quarter of 2018, on the back of low demand for diesel engines and sluggish sales in China. The result is the company's worst quarterly loss, driven in part by a £3.1 billion ($5.7 billion) write-down on the value of its investments.
