Car Models with Struggling Sales. Can be Discontinued in 2021

Passenger Car Market is ever revolving with an attempt done by Car Manufacturers for making Products based on changing Need and Demand

Consumers in India are eyeing on Cars 

» Which are Stylish and yet Safe

» Loaded with Features, Good Aesthetics, Design

and available at a Value Price Point. Gone are the days when only Mileage 'Deti Kitna Hai' used to be a differentiating Factor. Cars now part of Lifestyle and the holding Period for First Owner Cars is turning to be under 7 Years, with even most of the Owners now shift within 5 Years towards latest Feature Loaded Models.

 

Below is List of 10 Models which are Struggling with Low Sales in Indian Market

 

» Datsun Car Range (Go, Go Plus, Redi Go): Despite of Nissan Owned Datsun Car Range in Mass Market where

  • Redi Go - available from Rs 3.5 Lakh to 4.5 Lakh
  • Go & Go Plus - available from Rs 4 Lakh to 7 Lakh 

Look at the sales numbers which is what shocking. See last 6 month Sales Numbers - despite of over 100 Showroom of Nissan Pan India - combines average sales is less than 750 units a month of all 3 Cars. Thats shocking number for a brand to sustain on such low sales on long term basis.

 

» Hyundai Elantra - With a paradigm shift in SUV Segment - Executive Sedan Cars are facing the heat at the moment. Honda Civic is already discontinued, Skoda Octavia too discontinued and the only Executive Sedan is facing the hear from Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier, Mahindra XUV500 and top end model variants of Creta DCT, Seltos DCT and Duster Turbo - numbers speak for themselves - check out sales numbers

 

 

» Maruti Ignis - Maruti Suzuki sells over 1 Lakh Units and has high Volume products in car range.  Although Ignis an excellent product, but future not bright for Ignis considering the way sales been cannibalised with Wagon R and the fact upcoming Celerio Next Gen too likely to cannibalise in sales further - Ignis is definite facing the heat at the moment and that too from sibling car models

 

» Mahindra KUV100 - Mahindra new age products slowly been discontinued in Sub 4 Meter Segment. After Mahindra Nuvosport been disontinued, TUV300 been discontinued in Sub 4 Meter Segment - now is very challenging situation in front of  Mahindra KUV100 where despite of been most affordable product from Mahindra - sales slipped down to double digits

 

Volkswagen Vento: The kind of developments where VW Vento sales is much cannibalised by Sibling Skoda Rapid. Base Trims of Vento Trendline and Comfortline not available in Market. Skoda Auto Volkswagen India focus where they are all set for launch of SUV Cars like VW Taigun, Skoda Kushaq by Mid 2021 is all set to take away the charm of Vento.

Also, cant miss too that Mid Sedan Cars facing the hear from SUV Segment - Average sales of Volkswagen Vento for last 6 Months (July 2020 to December 2020) fallen below 250 Units - making historic lows of this product in Indian Market. A Very challenging situation for Vento

 

Other Car Models with Struggling Sales 

Even there are more Cars which are what facing the heat at the moment in terms of low sales 

  • Ford Figo (Average Sales of last 6 months is less than 250 Units)
  • Ford Aspire (Average Sales of last 6 months is less than 350 Units)
  • Toyota Yaris (Average Sales of last 6 months is less than 350 Units)
  • Ford Freestyle (Average Sales of last 6 months is less than 700 Units)
  • Honda Jazz (Average Sales of last 6 months is less than 750 Units) 
  • Tata Tigor (Average Sales of last 6 months is less than 1500 Units)

Keep an eye on Changing Trends. The way Competition been intensified in Passenger Car Segment with New Models been introduced, New Brands been introduced - it could just mean that we may witness 1 to 2 Manufacturers too even going out of business in India in next couple of years.

Yes, a number of cars running now are BS 4 compliant but from 2020 bs 6 compliant vehicle could be sold only. so either companies change engines and bodies or discontinue old models and launch new ones.
