Nissan Dropping Versa, Altima: Report

Nissan the latest to run from small sedans

  • Nissan to end its most affordable model

  • Expect electric crossovers to replace it

Nissan’s lineup is about to get a lot less versatile. That’s because the automaker is joining the unfortunate trend across the industry of ditching its cars.

The long-running and once-heralded Nissan Maxima left the market last summer. Now, according to Automotive News, the Versa will join it.

The report says that the subcompact Nissan Versa will end production in April of 2025, with no replacement model planned. The mid-sized Nissan Altima will end production after model year 2026, a year longer than originally planned, but the report said that it’s still not decided if Nissan will build a next-generation model or let the name die.

At least Nissan will still be building the Sentra. The report said that the Sentra, the brand’s second-best-selling model, will live on. AN said that data suggests nearly two-thirds of Sentra buyers are first-time buyers, which is a very important segment for any brand.

Expect more crossovers and EVs to help fill the showroom. Nissan and its luxury Infiniti brand are expected to build two sedans and three electric crossovers at their plant in Canton, Miss.
