With Phase II of BS6 Norms set to kick in from April 2023, car makers are prepping their popular models to comply with the updated emission norms. Those that aren’t very popular and aren’t economically viable to make them comply, will be axed. There are 17 cars in total that are being discontinued from Indian car market from April 2023.

Speaking about Hyundai, Grand i10 NIOS is their entry-level car, as the Santro was discontinued in 2022. It delivers decent sales. In fact, i10 NIOS is regularly featured in India’s top 10 selling cars list. Grand i10 NIOS hatchback and Aura sub 4m sedan are currently generating around 10,000 units per month in sales for Hyundai. And thus, these two have been deemed worthy by Hyundai to meet RDE (Real Driving Emission) norms and live on.
