The Next-Generation Nissan Micra which will be a replacement to the V-platform based current generation Nissan Micra hatchback could be expected to be launched in 2016. The Next-Gen Nissan Micra for Europe will be manufactured at the Renault’s Flins plant in France while the left-hand-drive version of this compact car would be produced in Europe. The right hand drive version of Micra for India would be manufactured at the Renault-Nissan Alliance plant in Chennai (RNAIPL).
Nissan’s EVP and Chairman of the Management Committee, Africa, Middle East, India and Europe reported that “We can confirm that the Renault-Nissan Alliance plant in Chennai (RNAIPL) will continue to produce both the current-generation Micra and the next-generation Micra from 2016 in RHD and also LHD versions for some markets. Additionally, consistent with Nissan’s plans to introduce 10 new models in India during its mid- term business plan period, and plans beyond that, Chennai will continue ramping up to run at full production capacity as previously stated. There is therefore no impact on Nissan’s current and future India”.
For now Nissan India will launch a facelift version of the current generation Micra for the Indian car market. The Japanese car maker has already facelifted the Thai-spec Micra a couple of months ago and the Indian version of the facelifted Micra is expected to be similar to the Thai version with a few changes (also spied). The company will also launch a low-cost variant of the Micra and a CVT Automatic gearbox equipped version of the Micra in the coming months.
