Maruti Suzuki is planning to discontinue the sale of its low-priced Maruti 800 model in 13 cities, the automaker’s chairman R C Bhargava announced recently.

He also denied plans to upgrade the Maruti 800, the company’s oldest model, to meet Euro IV emissions standards. Sales of the M 800 have been declining since the company announced plans to phase out its older models.

Sales of the M 800 model went down 55.2 per cent to 2,494 units in January 2010 against 5,571 sold in January 2009, figures released by the company showed.
