Nissan has been known in the country as an upmarket brand in the automotive sector that offers vehicle at a premium price tag. Due to this, popular cars like X-Trail SUV and Teana sedan had been facing the brunt with poor sales figures. The X-Trail took an exit last year, whereas this time around its the Teana sedan that shall take a silent exit from the country. Speaking more on the occasion, a Nissan spokesperson confirmed, “Teana will be phased out in India and we do not have any plans to launch the next generation. Nissan has a strong global model line-up... we are evaluating the right products that delivers more value to the Indian customer.”
The Nissan Teana sedan that stood in straight line of competition with Honda Accord is powered by 2.5-litre V6 petrol engine that is capable generating a maximum power output of about 182 bhp at 6000 rpm with a peak torque output of about 228 Nm at 4400 rpm. The powerful engine came mated to CVT automatic transmission. The sedan had been up for grabs in two engine variants namely – XL and XV. Catching a glimpse of previous year's sales report, Nissan India reported sales of about only 15 Teana units in India as compared to 1336 units of Superb sedan sold by Skoda India.
