Nissan sketches future compact car plansFri, 02 Oct 2009
Nissan has unveiled a sketch of a compact car that it plans to sell around the world.
The carmaker released few specifics, but the vehicle will be sold in more than 150 countries and is set to launch first in Thailand in March 2010.
The car will qualify as Thailand's first “eco-car,” which is a government policy to help promote energy-efficient vehicles.
The sketch shows a catchy design with a prominent lower grille, wheel arches and snazzy headlights. A Nissan spokesman declined to say whether the car is coming to the U.S. market and did not want to reveal other details.
The car reportedly is the next generation of the March/Micra small car, but Nissan would not comment on that.
