Rumour: Nissan Terrano production to be stopped

With the launch of the Nissan Kicks just around the corner, the carmaker has reportedly halted production of the Terrano. Dealers have reported to us that no new cars are being sent from the factory.

However, we don't know if this is a temporary or permanent move. Going by the paltry sales figures though, we won't be surprised if the production is being permanently stopped. In the last couple of months, Terrano sales have dropped to 2-digit figures. In the month of July and August, Nissan sold 65 and 71 units respectively. In fact, in the current financial year, Nissan has sold just 585 units of the Terrano.

The Nissan Terrano is based on the Renault Duster. It is available with petrol and diesel engine options. The 1.6-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine produces 103 BHP @ 5,750 rpm and 148 Nm of torque @ 3,750 rpm. The 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel unit comes in two states of tune - 84 BHP / 200 Nm and 109 BHP / 245 Nm. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic.
