Nissan Z Arrival Pushed Back to Summer in the US

The eagerly-anticipated new Nissan Z will require a little more patience and behalf of buyers


  • It was initially planned for this spring.

  • Canada’s launch window is/was June.

  • Supply chain issues are the cause behind the delay.


Disappointing though this may be, the revelation that the hot new 2023 Nissan Z will be delayed is not entirely surprising. Global parts and supply issues continue to haunt the industry and it is the cause behind the now pushed-back launch of the car.

Here are the 2023 Nissan Z’s Fuel Economy Numbers in Canada

Up until recently, the new 2023 Nissan Z was slated for market this spring in both Japan and the US. As for Canada, it was planned for June. Now, the news is that the new Z will go on sale only this summer in both markets.

A Nissan representative told Car and Driver that “due to unforeseen supply chain issues that are affecting the entire industry, there has been a slight delay to the summer of 2022.”

Pricing was supposed to be announced closer to the scheduled spring launch however this information may also be withheld a little longer. It is presumed that pricing will be set at around $40,000 for the base model in the US. Japanese pricing for the Z starts at ¥5,241,500 or about $41,000 US.

As for Canada, we’re guessing that market introduction will also be delayed by a few months. And we believe pricing will start somewhere around $45,000.
