Nissan is planning to manufacture an all-new compact electric vehicle at the Renault ElectriCity centre in France. The new car will replace the Nissan Micra as the entry-level vehicle.
The new electric compact car will be based on the Nissan/Renault Alliance CMF B-EV platform.
“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,” said Nissan Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta.
“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.”
