Nissan all set for big model changes

NISSAN will change every one of its UK models in the next 30 months and launch into a new sector of the market. The programme of model renewal and development will be funded by massive savings in the debt-ridden business from Nissan's collaboration with Renault.

Full details of the cost-cutting plans and model development programme were announced at a series of press conferences at the Tokyo Motor Show which coincided with the London Motor Show show.

Nissan fleet director Simon Carr said: 'The massive cost savings identified in the business means we can invest in new products and develop the brand and that is good news for fleet customers in the short, medium and long term.'

The heavily facelifted Primera, which made its world debut at the Fleet Show in May has just gone on sale and all-new Almera, which made its world debut at last month's Frankfurt Motor Show and goes on sale in March, was seen in the UK for the first time at the London show. Also new next year will be the next generation Skyline, the facelifted Terrano which goes on sale on January 1 and also debuted at the show, the Almera Tino mini-MPV a facelifted Micra and the replacement QX as well as a small 4x4 in the next two years which will see Nissan enter the burgeoning sector for the first time.
