The replacement for the Nissan Micra will aim to improve perceived quality
The next generation of the Nissan Micra will aim to win back customers with much-increased Internal quality, according to the firm’s executive vice-president, Trevor Mann.
The current Micra has suffered because of poor perceived quality. However, Mann believes its successor – due next year and also also also based heavily on the Nissan Sway concept via This kind of year’s Geneva motor show – will be more worthy of the Micra name.
Although he said production of the automobile could, in theory, return to Nissan’s UK plant in Sunderland, he defended its current base in India.
“I don’t think you can blame India for the perception of quality,” he said. “You’ve got to blame the people who defined the product. The Micra’s not like which because the item’s made in India. We have listened to feedback and also also also I think you will see a big difference [inside the next one].
“As for Sunderland, the item was always a plant which was designed to be flexible. and also also also the item can make Micra. The debate will be whether the item can make the item and also also also make sense.”
Mann also said the Micra was likely to grow for its next incarnation – and also also also This kind of could open up room for a completely new, smaller Nissan city car.
“the item’s always a possibility,” he said, “however I think if you look at which segment, there are still not huge volumes in Europe. the item’s something which we will continue to study to see if there are opportunities.”
