It’s a story that has gotten repetitive in recent years: a major automaker confirms it is discontinuing one of its sedans, particularly of the larger kind, in face of reality. Reality being tanking sales, the demise of V6 engine, the advent of EVs and government emissions regulations, and so on.
The latest four-door to bite the dust is Nissan’s Maxima, which the automaker has just confirmed via a short statement that it is going to stop producing as of mid-2023.
“Maxima is one of the most storied nameplates for Nissan in North America. Today we announced to our employees, suppliers and dealers that the current-generation Maxima will end production in the middle of 2023.”
