Nissan has announced an all-new compact electric vehicle coming to European markets. The new car will succeed the iconic Nissan Micra as the entry-level vehicle in the Nissan line-up.
It will be manufactured in the Renault ElectriCity centre in France, and based on the Alliance CMF B-EV platform.
The future compact EV was announced as part of Alliance 2030, a common roadmap announced by Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors that focuses on EVs and connected mobility activities.
Nissan Chief Operating Officer, Ashwani Gupta, says “This all-new model will be designed by Nissan and engineered and manufactured by Renault using our new common platform, maximizing the use of our Alliance assets while maintaining its Nissan-ness. This is a great example of the Alliance’s ‘smart differentiation’ approach. Succeeding our iconic Micra, I am sure this new model will provide further excitement to our customers in Europe.”
The new EV adds to the portfolio of Nissan vehicles manufactured by Renault in France, which include Nissan’s portfolio of LCVs, notably the new Nissan Townstar, which is succeeding the trailblazing e-NV200 as Nissan’s small electric van.
