The world’s cheapest car, i.e, Tata Nano will also face the axe as dwindling sales number has forced the homegrown automaker to call it quits. Along with Nano, Mahindra e2o and Fiat Punto are also up for the chop.
More surprisingly though the well-known brands like Hyundai Eon and Honda Brio will also be taken off the shelf as their respective companies have already stopped the production of these models.

The list of models which could also possibly face extinction includes the likes of Volkswagen Ameo, Nissan Terrano, and Fiat Linea unless their manufacturers decide to resurrect them in a brand new avatar.
