Lack of Diesel Engine in Europe causes slowdown in X type sales and production


Jedi Trainee
Surprisingly..the X types production has been slowed down due to lack of european demand in relationship to what Jaguar originally anticipated..

Some say its the lack of the diesel engine?

Some say a wagon is needed?

What do you think?

Are U.S sales for this as strong as Jaguar had hoped ? Is it because its lease deals are not as competitive as others? Its lease deals aren't bad..but not as attractive as BMW or Lexus..

Is that old low residual biting them in the @ss?
