PSNews- Nissan Teana, one of Toyota Camry's biggest rivals, is likely to be discontinued in Australia, as the cost of upgrading the car model has exceeded the capabilities of the Japanese automaker.
This information has been revealed by representatives of Nissan in Australia at a time when the Japanese car maker is planning to stop all production of this car model in Australia.
A high cost needed to upgrade the wheel drive system to meet the Euro 5 emission standards, amid a decline in sales, is the reason why Nissan has decided to halt the production of Teana.
Since the beginning of 2017, Nissan has only sold nearly 160 vehicles in Australia, while the upgrading cost to meet the high emission standards to export the car model to environmentally-sensitive markets is more likely to outpace the expected sales of the upgraded product.
Representatives of Nissan in Australia said that vehicles in inventory will be sold in the near future, and its plants in the country will step up production of SUVs to make up for the stop of Teana production.
