According to Motortrend, sources within the Ford-owned luxury brand have stated the company plans to discontinue selling the car in the U.S. by year’s end.
The X-type is Jaguar’s smallest and least expensive car. Launched in 2000, it was designed to compete against other luxury brands’ entry vehicles such as the BMW 3-series. The company had hoped the X-type’s cachet but low price would appeal more to the average consumer in both in Europe and in the U.S. While global sales were as high as 130,330 units in 2002, projected sales for 2007 have dropped as low as 33,770.

Jaguar representatives, when asked about such news, stated, "the X-Type will continue to be available in the US."

If the information proves to be correct, it is not known if the X-Type will continued to be sold in Europe.
