Japanese carmaker Nissan today made an official statement- that it will discontinue the sales of its X-Trail SUV and 370Z coupe in India. Both models were brought into Indian market through the Complete Built Unit (CBU) route and hence couldn't be competitively priced. However, Nissan will continue to sell its luxury sedan Teana, which is likely to get an update soon.

The move comes in the wake of Nissan’s decision to focus more on its locally manufactured models. And with Datsun on the way, Nissan plans to concentrate on products tailored for India and fetching more sales to its kitty. In 2012, 156 units of X-Trails were sold in the country, while dismal seven of that were delivered last year. And condition for 370Z coupe was even worse, as the car wasn't able to find a single buyer last year.

"In India, Nissan has been constantly expanding its innovative and exciting product range, and will continue to deliver cutting-edge technology, distinctive design and a rewarding experience to all its customers. Terrano, Nissan’s latest offering marks its entry in the growing compact SUV segment," said the company.

Currently, Nissan's only manufacturing facility in Oragadam Chennai, produces the complete line-up (except CBUs) including Micra Active, Micra, Sunny, Evalia and Terrano.
