Nissan Maxima to be Discontinued mid-2023  

Nissan has announced that it will discontinue the Maxima in mid-2023, just six years after the automaker introduced the current generation of the flagship sedan. This move appears strategic, as the company is expected to bring an all-electric Maxima to market shortly.

The original Maxima was a groundbreaking car when it was first released in the 1980s. It was the first Japanese sedan to offer a V6 engine, and it quickly became a favorite among luxury car buyers. The Maxima has undergone several redesigns over the years but has always retained its status as a top-of-the-line sedan.

The Possibility of an Electric Maxima in the Future

Nissan is making a big push for electric vehicles as part of its Ambition 2030 plan. The company aims to have 40% of its sales come from electric cars by 2030. It also wants more to be electrified in the future. This year, Nissan announced two new, all-electric vehicles that the automaker will build at the Canton assembly plant in Mississippi.

Nissan introduced the current generation of the Maxima in late 2015, which has been a big success for Nissan. The Maxima is now the best-selling car in the company's lineup. Unsurprisingly, Nissan plans to bring an all-electric version of the Maxima to market shortly.

The all-electric Maxima is expected to be based on the 2019 IMs concept. The Nissan 2019 IMs concept is a futuristic electric car that offers a luxurious driving experience. The vehicle has a sleek design and features an all-electric powertrain. It also has a spacious interior with plenty of room for passengers and cargo. Therefore, the Nissan IMs is an excellent choice for drivers who want a luxurious and eco-friendly car.

Sales for Maxima have been dropping every year since 2017. That year, the company sold 67,627 units in the United States. Sales dropped to 42,337 units in 2018 and plummeted to 35,076 in 2019. In 2021, sales fell to 16,386 units. The reasons for the decline are unknown.
