The Nissan Teana, a premium sedan from the leading car manufacturer of Japan is being offered in the Indian market at an excellent discounted pricing of Rs.17.99 lakh on the base variant at a dealership of Nissan in Pune. Is it the low sales that forced the dealer to announce such a lucrative cash discount? Or is this basically a part of year- end sales like other car manufacturers that the Nissan dealership has doled out? There is literally a difference of Rs 4 lakh between the two prices and here’s a brief review on Nissan Teana which could help us understand why this massive cash discount.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with the car as such. The car fares pretty high on safety aspects. All necessary safety measures including airbags, ABD, EBD and the likes have been provided to the car. The car is unmatched in terms of its looks. This premium sedan is powered by a 2.5L diesel engine under its hood, which helps it to register impressive torque and power figures. It generates a maximum power of 182KW and a peak torque of 228Nm, which makes it the leader in its class of D-segment sedans. If one can point out to, then it is the price alone that seems to pull the sales down. However, Nissan India too cannot pretty much do anything about this.
The Nissan Teana is imported as a completely built unit and this causes the premium sedan to attract the higher price attached with it. But, this is not a factor bothering Nissan at this moment as low sales of the vehicle is paining it more. As low as 18 units were sold during the month of November. So, this certainly calls for a straight cash discount especially now that the year-end has approached. Hopefully, this will push the sales of Nissan Teana to atleast some extent, if not any miraculous change.
