At the end
I tried to summarize the models that will be discontinued in 2021,Discontinued sales of famous cars that have been on sale for over 20 yearsAs a result, “Odyssey” will leave a strong impression on many people.In particular, there are many minivans, and the historical background is clearly visible..Although it has been abolished, there is a possibility that it will be revived in the future as it is a model that has undergone a full model change overseas and continues to be sold.As an example, the “Odyssey”, which will also be discontinued this time, continues to be sold in the US specification, and the “Allion” is still being sold by FAW Toyota, a joint venture manufacturer with the China FAW Group, and the name remains. continuing.
