XK is Axed

Jaguar have announced their plans to discontinue production of the XK model this summer, in order to make way for newer models. The XK went on sale in 2006 and since its inception 54,000 models have been sold globally. Jaguar state the decision to cease production will support their strategic product planning cycle and following on from the triumph of the F-Type; Jaguar believe they fulfil their customers’ desire for luxury sports cars. Jaguar intend to use the additional capacity for their newer models. Due on sale in early 2015, the XE is to be produced at the Solihul plant with the production version of the C-X17 SUV to follow in 2016 and possible replacements for the XF and XJ afterwards. A replacement XK model has not been ruled out entirely at this stage; however it is not a priority for Jaguar. If a replacement is considered at a later date, it will need to be more elite and a rival to Aston Martin.
