The Toyota Avensis is no longer available to order.
The production, which takes place in the Toyota plant, Burnaston, in Derbyshire, will cease in the next few weeks as the last orders are met. After this, the only Avensis models left dealer stock. The Burnaston factory has been the subject of a £240 million investment last year to upgrade the production of cars with the Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform.
The Avensis makes way for the Camry hybrid, the Camry’s name to return to the UK, after 14 years of absence. The sales of the Avensis has been slow, given the decline of the D-segment saloons buyers opt for an Suv. Toyota sold 3473 examples of Avensis in 2017, compared 3921 RAV4s.
News of the Avensis death following Toyota’s confirmation that the MPV has been taken off sale. The two models were the last to be offered with diesel engines in the UNITED kingdom over the Land Cruiser, which is considered by the company as a product specialist.
The RAV4 diesel has been cut from the range at the beginning of this year. Toyota confirmed last year that not launch more diesel in Europe, as well as the industry turns for the electrification and demand plummets in the midst of the ongoing diesel debate.
