The company said production will be temporarily interrupted due to an issue in the supply chain, but declined to offer more details. "As a temporary measure, Jaguar Land Rover has stopped the Jaguar XJ production line due to a supply chain issue. Production of the Jaguar XJ will resume at the end of next week,” a Jaguar spokesman told Autocar.

The Castle Bromwich facility manufactures XF, XK and F-Type models as well, but the automaker says production of these vehicles are not affected.

As a reminder, the Jaguar XJ will feature a number of technological upgrades and interior improvements for the 2014 model year, including 18-inch Manra lightweight forged alloy wheels, a new center armrest, soft closing door technology, a revised entertainment system with two high-resolution touchscreens, and an optional Meridian Reference Audio System featuring Conversation Assist.
