Once its final orders are fulfilled, Nissan will no longer sell the Pixo
A replacement for the current Suzuki Alto is being readied for 2015
Nissan has ended production of its Pixo city car.
The company confirmed to Autocar that no new models of the Pixo will be produced, and that after current orders are fulfilled it will no longer be selling the car.
A spokesman told the firm that Nissan would be concentrating on its other small car models, "The Pixo was a good competitor for cars in that class. We've got a strong lineup in the small car sector with the Micra, the new Note and the Juke. That's where we're going to focus for the time being".
The Pixo was made in the same Indian factory as the Suzuki Alto, and shares the majority of its underpinnings with that car.
However, Suzuki has confirmed that the Alto will continue to be made and sold. While a replacement is being readied for the model, Suzuki says that won't be ready until at least 2015.
Prices for the Alto have increased to £6499 for the entry-level model, up from £5995 under Suzuki's VAT-free offer which began last year. That offer will continue to run on the outgoing SX4, the Splash and certain models of the Swift.
