According to a recent report, Nissan will continue to offer new Nismo models in the next years.
Nismo’s globally head, Brit Darren Cox, told CAR magazine that sportier vehicles are the way to make Nissan’s road cars more exciting. “Most people know Nismo through gaming and our Nismo GT Academy,” he said. “Nismo is an authentic brand that’s been involved in motorsport and road cars for a long time in Japan, so when we wanted to respond to the rise in more bespoke cars created by rivals such as the MINI and the DS sub-brand, Nismo was an ideal way for us to do this.”
Cox also confirmed new Nismo models in Europe are planned. “But we won’t just stick a load of stickers on a Micra and bring that over,” he added. “We are not about to rush headlong into extra models unless they feel right for our market.” No confirmation for Micra Nismo or Pulsar Nismo was given.
