Initially projected to surpass 100,000 annual sales, the X-TYPE peaked at 50,000 in 2003. Sales in the United States, its primary market, dropped from 21,542 in 2004 to 10,941 in 2005. BMW sold 106,950 3 Series cars in the U.S. in 2005, while Mercedes-Benz sold 60,658 C-Class cars and Audi sold 48,922 A4 and S4 models. For the 2006 model year, the front-wheel drive model was dropped for the North American market. Only the Lexus IS posted similarly disappointing sales. Despite these poor numbers, the X-TYPE is Jaguar's best-selling model, accounting for 36% of overall sales. Due to poor sales and the loss of profits resulting from the continued devaluation of the USD vs. the GBP in recent years, Ford (owner of the Jaguar brand) announced in October 2007, that it is stopping sales of the X-Type in the United States. Stock is expected to last through the first quarter of 2008. However, the new generation X-TYPE will go on sale in the UK in March 2008 and in other European markets in April 2008. In Canada, where it is Jaguar's best-selling vehicle, expect it to be sold there.Source: Wikipedia.
