A rumour doing rounds for the past few days, it has now been confirmed that Hyundai Motor has discontinued production of the i10 hatchback.

According to reports, the last i10 produced at HMIL’s factory was recently rolled out, marking the end of its nine-year production run. Factors behind it discontinuation could include low sales numbers have reduced to an average of 2000 per month. These are really low sales figures compared to the Grand i10 that sells over 11,000 units a month.

The i10's discontinuation would also free up production capacity for other models. The all-new Santro is reportedly on its way.

It used to come with a 1.2L four cylinder Kappa engine, and a more refined and powerful option to the 1.1L 4-cyl iRDE petrol engine. But since the Grand i10 was launched, the i10 was only sold with the second option, which produced 66 PS.

The Chennai plant was the global sourcing hub for the i10, but with the arrival of the second-gen i10 in 2013, European production shifted to Turkey. HMIL continued making the first gen i10 for India and few export markets.

Back in its glory days, the i10 averaged a sales figure of 8,000-9,000 units per month, and was serious threat to Maruti Suzuki’s top selling products Wagon R and Ritz.
