Blame it on the weak dollar, and weak cars. Among the brands sucking wind in the U.S. market are Jaguar and Land Rover, whose X-Type and Freelander models are barely moving, down 18.9 and 56.4% in the last year, respectively. Both brands will cut numberd destined for the U.S., although specifics have not been announced. According to Sean Coughlin, partner in the NY-based Premier collection, "If you choose between making $10 a car in Europe or $5 in the U.S., it's an easy call." Volvo is also experiencing disappointing sales and the effects of currency instability, but they have no plans to cut U.S.-bound vehicles.
