The Jaguar X-Type Production History


The Jaguar X-Type was the company's entry into the premium compact segment. It seems to me Ford had too much influence in the design. Having said that, the car itself was a reasonable - if cautious - effort. It came as a saloon (sedan) and estate (wagon), plus a 4wd. It soon became a major contributor to Jaguar production. Below is a chart showing production figures (Units) and the percentage the X-Type achieved of Jaguar production (% Jag).


Year Units % Jag
2001 55,600 45.4%
2002 69,050 56.2%
2003 61,600 48.8%
2004 60,000 56.8%
2005 43,000 51.1%
2006 29,400 42.1%
2007 20,150 37.3%
2008 15,950 21.9%
2009 8,050 19.3%
Tot 362,800


It obviously needed replacing, but wasn't and production fell away. North America called time on the X-Type in 2007, and Jaguar decided to finish the model a little earlier than planned.
