At a consolidated level, the company reported profits of Rs 12.14 billion against Rs 1.11 billion in the corresponding quarter of the previous year. Revenues during the quarter increased 4.3 per cent to £6.3 billion over the same period past year.

Tata Motors will put on display its new H5 5-7 seater SUV vehicle based on the Land Rover Discovery Sport model at the Auto Expo beginning in nearby Greater Noida on Wednesday.

Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO, said: "Despite headwinds and uncertainty in some markets, Jaguar Land Rover still delivered increased unit sales as we continued the launch schedule for new models including the significantly enhanced Range Rover family and all-new Jaguar E-PACE.we expect a stronger all-around performance in the Fourth Quarter driven by new models, seasonality, and improved profitability".

The "turnaround strategy" is delivering results, according to Tata Motors Chairman N Chandrasekaran. Its Ebitda margin stood at 9.0%.· Further, it made an investment of Rs 1,021 crore in products, platforms and technologies. The strategy was implemented in August past year to turn around its passenger vehicles business as well as to reclaim its position of market leader in the commercial vehicles segment in the country.
