Daihatsu will terminate its vehicle sales business in Greece as of Feb. 1, 2013 after the Japanese car manufacturer announced it will terminate activities in the entire European market by January 2013.

Daihatsu will terminate its vehicle sales business in Greece as of Feb. 1, 2013 after the Japanese car manufacturer announced it will terminate activities in the entire European market by January 2013.

Following the decision, Agripan, a local importer and the Daihatsu representative in Greece for more than two decades, said it will continue offering maintenance and after-sales services to 60,000 Daihatsu vehicle owners.

Daihatsu Industries said the main reason behind its decision to exit the European market is increasingly high model development costs (related to the euro/yen currency rate), anticipated burdens from CO2 emissions ceilings in the EU and dropping sales.
