Nissan plans to temporarily suspend production of the Evalia - a passenger carrying variant of the NV200 - in India, owing to excess stock.

"The Evalia's design and styling is unconventional and, unfortunately, it has not met our sales expectations with Indian customers. We continue to promote the vehicle with our target customers," said a company spokesperson.

Nissan has sold about 200 units of the MPV in the country in the last six months, Business Standard reported. Since the launch of the vehicle in September 2012, the company has sold 2,455 units.
