Rumour: Mahindra's 1.2L diesel to be discontinued

According to a media report, Mahindra is likely to discontinue its 1.2-litre diesel engine ahead of the BS-VI deadline of April 1, 2020.

The 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder diesel engine produces 77 BHP @ 3,750 rpm and 190 Nm @ 1,750-2,250 rpm. Mahindra offers this engine on the KUV100 NXT. 

Diesel engines of capacity larger than 1.5-litre are expected to be upgraded to meet the stringent BS-VI emission regulations.

Earlier, Tata Motors had announced that it would axe the 1.05-litre, 3-cylinder diesel engine that powers the Tiago and Tigor. Fiat has no plans to upgrade its 1.3-litre Multijet diesel to meet BS-VI norms, while Volkswagen will also discontinue the 1.5-litre diesel from its line up altogether.
