The Nissan Be-1 is a retro-style automobile manufactured by Nissan Motors. The Be-1 was the first of four such retro spin-offs of the K10 Micra; the S-Cargo, Figaro and Pao being the other three.
Like the Figaro, the Be-1 was sold without a Nissan name.
It was designed to be a fashionable city car, requiring just 4.4 meters (14.4 ft) to turn around, and delivering up to 48 mpg (4.9 L/100 km) in the city and 74 mpg (3.2 L/100 km) at a steady 60 km/h (37 mph). In Japan, it was exclusive to the Japanese Nissan dealership network called the Nissan Cherry Store.
The engine was the 1.0L (987 cc) MA10S, and a 3-speed automatic transmission or 5-speed manual transmission. This engine produced 52 PS (51 hp/38 kW) at 6000 rpm and 76 N·m (56 ft·lbf) at 3600 rpm.
The chassis included rack and pinion steering, independent suspension with struts in front, as well as 4-links and coil springs in back. Disc brakes were used in the front and Drum Brakes were used in the rear.
