Hyundai India discontinues Accent
Hyundai introduced the Indians to the Hyundai Accent way back in 1999. Back then, the Accent competed with the Ford Ikon, Honda City, Fiat Siena and also took to the Opel Corsa and the Maruti Baleno.
The Accent is one of Hyundai India’s success stories but it’s getting long in the tooth now. 14 years later, Hyundai has finally pulled the plug on the Accent.
Hyundai’s Chennai plant is expected to continue making the Accent however, as the export demand for the Accent is pretty strong. A key export market is Algeria, where the Made-in-India Accent hopes to sell about 3000 units a month!
In India, Hyundai managed to sell 2,931 units of the Accent in the last fiscal year. Which is actually not all that bad for a 14 year old model. Hyundai India discontinues Accent
