The Ignis has been a bit of a slow-seller for the manufacturer, with the diesel car attracting few buyers. The company, according to reports, has stopped production of the diesel variant but continues to sell the petrol variant with both gearbox options.
There is no official comment from Maruti yet but some dealers in Mumbai, Delhi, Ludhiana and Chennai confirmed that they are not accepting fresh bookings for the Ignis diesel. They are also offering a discount of Rs 65,000 to clear unsold stock.
Dealers also said that the Ignis diesel production "could be on hold for the time being".
