Default But the S10 was sell`g at upto 2 lacs disc

I do`nt think anybody paid 7 lacs for an S10 as the car was sell`g at a heavy discount of 2 lacs to its sticker price and the dealers were desparate too push this car from their stocks.

I saw a report to this end in the Business Standard, also in Autocar mag. Its true that Sachins magic did not hold on the road. The S10 (not the man, but the machine-as a car) is an excellent proposition but somehow it never clicked with Indian car buyers.

the car was sold for 4 lakhs when it was being disposed just before the contract between the little master and fiat was going to expire as after that the sompany would have to sell all the cars as used cars .

@Vulken , If thats what he meant , its a STEAL.
However I doubt , that a brand new (read 0 kms) would be available that cheap.
Waiting for shahmotors to throw some ROSHNI on this.
