It’s Goodbye Time For Hyundai Eon

0

Chennai: Yet another entry-level car faces the axe with Hyundai deciding to discontinue the Eon.

According to a report published in MyCarHelpline, the company has stopped the production of its cheapest car and dealers are currently clearing stock at discounts of around Rs 1 lakh. This is also evident from the sales numbers published in Team-BHP that indicates Hyundai has shipped just 1 and 5 units of Eon in November and October respectively this year.

The 814cc car was launched back in 2011 and hadn’t received a mechanical update since.

The re-introduction of the Santro has dwindled the sales of Eon, which is closely priced starting under 4 lakh rupees.
