May I add the Zen AX and WagonR AX. Seen only one Zen AX and one WagonR AX till now. But Santro AX seems to be doing slightly better. Have seen few of them. Not sure whether it will qualify here.

Also the Getz CRDi. But I guess it might be too early to say so.

San Storm???? I didn't even HEAR of this car. When was it launched? Just checked out San Motors' website. The car seems okay. Why did it flop?

I think Ford Fusion can also be added to the list now, as the diesels also havent made an impact!

What about Getz CRDi? Is it selling well? Havent had a glimpse of it, even in showrooms here!

fusion cannot be considered a failure because for that price they are selling far more than expected compared to SRV
there are a lot of these you can spot in bangalore

now you cannot expect them to sell as much as getz or aveo

because of the price the car targets a totally different market,so failure is a wrong word,also lets face it that entire segment is a failure

and its great that fusion is selling at that very high price even with the ford badge on it which is not as special as skoda in india

Well, my neighbour bought one for Rs 6.4 lacs OTR. I have seen a few on the roads too. But I guess most customers must be getting swayed away to the Swift Vdi that is around 50K cheaper, or the Verna diesel that is 2 lacs costlier.

are you talking only about the diesel fusion or fusion in general?

I have researched a bit and 30 fusions roll out each month in Hyderabad - not a bad number!
