Changes To Be Expected At Nissan

Nissan is currently having a hard time and some models are expected to disappear because of that. We shed some light on the situation.

The last few months have been rather bizarre for Nissan. After the arrest of the Japanese automaker’s president and CEO Carlo Ghosn by the Japanese authorities for unpaid taxes, the financial results of recent months have done nothing to help the manufacturer’s image. Nissan has also announced over the last few days some measures to put the brand on the right path for profitability, including reducing overall production. In addition, Nissan plans to reduce the extent of its alignment by the end of fiscal year 2022.

However, the redesign of six major models could pay off for Nissan given the signs of aging shown by the current product range. Indeed, the Sentra sedan is due for a complete overhaul, and the same comment can be applied to the Rogue, Pathfinder and Qashqai SUVs. As for the Frontier, its redesign certainly would not be a bad thing, especially in North America where mid-size pickups are popular these days.

We can also expect a refresh of the Nissan Leaf, the electric car that was completely overhauled last year, in addition to receiving help recently with the arrival of the more powerful Leaf Plus. Nissan also confirmed that by 2021, a fully electric SUV would come help the Leaf, a model that could boost Nissan’s electric vehicle sales.

Only the future will tell, but the full-size sedan Maxima is probably one of the cars targeted by this wave of cuts, unless Nissan keeps the name for an all-electric livery in the distant future. The same sad statement could apply to the two sports car of the group, the 370Z which has been in service since 2009, while the GT-R, despite the many improvements over time, is also 10 years old.

The next few months will be crucial for Nissan, the manufacturer has to return to profitability.
