As per a report on Autocar Professional, Nissan India has ceased the production of the Evalia MPV, and has viably suspended the model in India. Propelled in the nation in September 2012, Nissan India have sold a negligible 2,412 units of the MPV since its dispatch, while the Toyota Innova, its main competitor sells about 5,250 units a month.
The Evalia shared its platform with the Ashok Leyland Stile, which had a similar destiny. Subsequent to offering just 1,154 units since its launch in October 2013, the Stile was taken off the showrooms in India a month ago.
Both models were sold in the nation with a 1.5-liter dCi diesel motor mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, and a front-wheel drive. On the Evalia, this motor created 84.8 bhp and 200 Nm of torque, and was equipped for an ARAI-evaluated proficiency of 19.3 km/l. The same motor on the Stile was tuned to churn out 75 bhp and 185 Nm of torque, with a fuel proficiency of 19.5 km/l.
Nissan is planning on taking the Indian automobile market in a better equipped manner with newer products and halting Evalia’s production may be just one of those steps.
