Swedish term or phrase: ...På några få år...
[division of a car company] står också inför ytterligare en stor utmaning. På några få år ska stora delar av produktsortimentet bytas ut.

Is 'bytas ut' in this context 'phased out' rather than 'exchanged'?

...be replaced.
Explanation:
I think I would write be replaced here. "Within just a few years... will be replaced." Or something similar. For me, phasing something out doesn't automatically imply a replacement product, whereas bytas ut does.
