Nissan Note To Be Phased Out Of Production — 2017 Micra To Replace Note

Written By:

The Japanese automaker Nissan has stated that it will be discontinuing the Note model and it will be replaced by the 2017 Micra model.

The Nissan Note will be phased out of production when the 2017 Nissan Micra will go on sale in the UK in March 2017. Micra will be replacing both the outgoing Micra and Note models.

The Japanese firm sees no need for two B-segment cars competing for buyers in the same class.

A spokesperson from Nissan said, "The Note will continue for the time being, but it will be phased out as the new Micra comes on stream. There is no timescale for this at present."

It is speculated that the Note model will be dropped from the product portfolio of Nissan by next summer. The sales of the current Micra has not been great in Europe.

The sales figures dropped from 1,53,000 units in 2005 to 66,000 units in 2015. However, Nissan expects a rise in these figures when the new Micra arrives.

Jim Wright, Nissan GB Managing Director said that even though the Micra was priced higher than an A-segment car, it would be inefficient to continue three models.

The Juke model will continue as the Nissan's small crossover alongside Micra. The next generation Juke will be produced at Nissan's Sunderland plant.
