Nissan To Halt Production Of The Terrano — Kicks SUV To Be The Replacement

Nissan is expected to stop production of their Duster-based SUV, the Terrano in India. The Nissan Terrano was first launched in India, during the early part of 2013 and will now be replaced by the upcoming premium Kicks SUV.

According to Team-BHP, the Japanese car manufacturer has already stopped dispatching the Terrano SUV to their dealerships across the country. The Terrano, based on the more popular Duster from Renault, was expected to bring in good sales for the brand. However, the SUV failed to bring in sales and was never able to achieve the success, similar to the Duster.

Sales of the Nissan Terrano has been seeing just two-figure sales in the last couple of months, with 65 and 71 units in July and August 2018, respectively.
