Sept. 4, 2019—These models might not be destined for an upcoming Tech Spec feature in NOLN, as automakers announced that they will be discontinued.
USA Today compiled nine outgoing models after poor sales marked them for death. The article notes that it takes a while for production to fully cease, so this serves as a warning in case any of these cars sits on your wish list.
The list includes the Volkswagen Touareg, the smaller Prius C, Buick LaCrosse, Chevrolet Volt and more.
One of the most notable models discontinued this year is Volkwagen's Beetle, which was in production for decades. Another notable end is near for the Ford Taurus, once a best-selling car for the automaker. But USA Today notes that this isn't the first time the Taurus badge has been marked for discontinuation.
