Hyundai Elantra discontinued from India?, Details removed from company website
Hyundai India has silently removed the details of Elantra on its website. The sedan has been removed from the automaker’s official India website to buy new cars. This hints that the company has discontinued the sedan in the country. However, the company has not officially announced about the discontinuation of Elantra.
Multiple Hyundai dealer sources revealed that they are not accepting bookings of Elantra. Hyundai Elantra was one of the few remaining executive sedans in the country,
Reports have suggested that the Elantra has been discontinued temporarily due to parts shortage or the company is likely planning to launch the new gen Elantra in India. This was assumed as the carmaker has already introduced a new-gen model of Elantra in several international markets.
