Discontinued Cars for 2022

According to Car and Driver, last year brought the end to more than 20 vehicles. Like humans, cars have a limited life span.

“Inevitably the market turns against certain car models and they are taken from us,” says Ellsworth Buck, Vice President of GreatFlorida Insurance, Florida’s top independent auto insurance company.

Here are the cars and SUVs that have hit their demise in 2021.

  • BMW i3, M2 and 2 Series convertible
  • Dodge Durango SRT Hellcat
  • Ford EcoSport and F-150 Diesel- The F-150 hybrid with 570 pound-feet of torque will take the place of the F-150 diesel. However, highway travelers might be disappointed as the diesel was more efficient on the highway with 27 miles per gallon compared to 24 for the hybrid.
  • Honda Clarity
  • Hyundai Ioniq Electric and Veloster
  • Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT and Trackhawk
  • Kia Sedona
  • Lotus Evora GT
  • Mazda CX-3 and 6
  • McLaren Elva
  • Mercedes AMG A35, AMG CLS 53, and AMG GT Coupe and Roadster along with other V8s. The problem is the supply chain, so the issue could be resolved by the end of the year. The S-Class will not be affected.
  • Nissan NV and NV200
  • Polestar 1
  • Porsche Macan Turbo
  • Rolls-Royce Dawn and Wraith
  • Subaru WRX STI
  • Toyota Land Cruiser -This is a notable departure, having been around for 70 years. Once news got out that the Land Cruiser was being discontinued in the U.S., reports, January 2021, saw the highest number of sales in the last decade.
  • Volvo V60 and V90
  • Volkswagen Passat and Golf

“Some of these models could experience resurrection in electric form in the future,” says Ellsworth Buck, Vice President of GreatFlorida Insurance, Florida’s largest independent car insurance company.
