End of Hyundai Accent in India. Production Stopped of Accent Car

Hyundai Accent after completing 14 yrs in India has come to an end. An Official Announcement from Hyundai India has Marked the End of Production of Accent

 

Hyundai Accent : A Sedan which when launched in 1999, became an instant hit and challenged the supremacy of Maruti Esteem. It was considered a model which was responsible for killing Daewoo Cielo Product and continued to do well for many years.  Accent Sedan was even awarded as most dependable compact Sedan in 2008 by JD Power, has led to an end in May 2013

With sales falling on month on month during last 2 yrs and a record low sales in April 2013 (in the first month of Financial year), slipping to double digits at just 98 units - the end was pretty much announced... Even unofficial reports states earlier that Dealers were not taking any fresh bookings since Mid May and were only clearing any existing pipeline stock

There have been many new Mid Sedan Models which has entered in last 2 yrs, either in terms of facelifts or all new model... Hyundai Accent has not got any facelift and further tragic was lack of diesel model in it

 

Fall of Hyundai Accent

- In 2007, Hyundai Accent Crdi was discontinued as to focus the diesel engine in Verna

- Even the top End Variant of Hyundai Accent were discontinued as was feared of Cannibalisation to Verna base Model

- No Major Facelift done in body design and shape. A Minor Facelift of Accent was done in March 2011 with some minor cosmetic changes done in Grille and Chrome Package Added

- The Launch of Toyota Etios, Swift Dzire in Facelift Model, Chevrolet Sail Sedan, Honda Amaze - and availability of both Petrol and Diesel Fuel has killed the Accent Brand which only used to come in Petrol and Dealer Fitted CNG

- Fighting all alone in a single variant of Petrol and CNG, Accent recorded sales of 2930 units in FY '12 - '13 which was considerably low and April 2013 confirmed the death of Accent brand with paltry 98 unit of Sales

 

Replacement of Hyundai Accent

Hyundai India however expects to launch its New Car as replacement of Accent, following the Fluidic Philosophy in both Petrol and Diesel Version in 3 to 4 months from now. There are 2 Models which are estimated to emerge as replacement of Accent :->

- Hyundai I10 BA Hatchback - Hyundai I10 BA on the other hand will emerge as hatchback aggressively priced and will be in between Hyundai I10 and I20. The Length expected to be similar to Maruti Swift

- Hyundai I20 Based Compact Sedan - I20 Sedan is to take on challenge posted by Swift Dzire, Amaze, Sail Sedan and Etios. Been the Compact Sedan Segment is on a roll in India - expect I20 Sedan to be loaded with Features so as to create its own USP along with agressive pricing

Below is Pic of Hyundai HB20 S which was launched offlate in Brazil, however we expect a compact version of Sub 4 Meter Sedan on similar platform to be launched in India from Hyundai India.
