Car companies constantly update the list of their variants based on the demand. This list of variants is decided keeping in mind the higher profit and margin in terms of better use. Working on this strategy, the country’s second largest car company Hyundai (Hyundai) has made a big decision. The company has decided to stop the production of a total of many variants of the car. The company has asked the dealers to stop new bookings of these models and also insist on removing the vehicles which are left in stock.
Hyundai Company is the second largest selling company in India after Maruti Suzuki. But the company has announced to stop production of all 10 variants of Santro, i10 Nios hatchback and some models of Aura sedan in view of profit and margins. According to the latest update, now Hyundai will only produce the CNG variant of the Santro. While the i10 Nios and Aura will be available only in the petrol engine.
Variants of Nios and Aura
Hyundai has reduced the variants of the Grand i10 Nios. These include models like Era, Magna, Sportz, Turbo and Asta. With all this, the company has decided to discontinue the Sportz and Sportz AMT variants of diesel. This means that the company has now stopped making all diesel variants of the Grand i10 Nios. This car will now be available in petrol. Same is the case with Aura. Now Aura will be available for customers only in CNG and petrol variants.
These variants of Aura will be discontinued
The Aura is available in E, S, SX, SX(+) and SX(O) models but the company has decided to discontinue the diesel variants of the Aura. This list includes S and SX+AMT. Like the Nios, the Aura will now be available for customers in CNG and petrol variants only. The company has taken this decision in view of the decreasing demand for diesel engines. The Nios and Aura are available in similar powertrain options.
Hyundai will bring new variants
In view of the demand, Hyundai has decided to discontinue all but the CNG variants of the Santro. Only the sports CNG model of the Santro will be available to the customers. The company has also decided that it is deciding to launch some more variants soon. The company has taken this decision in view of the rising prices of petrol and diesel. Due to this, the attention of the people has increased towards CNG, but in terms of production, how much it is able to provide the car to the customers on time, it will be a big challenge.
