Nissan India discontinues X-Trail and 370Z models

Nissan India discontinues X-Trail and 370Z models

Nissan India has discontinued the X-Trail premium SUV and 370Z sports coupe from the market. The announcement comes in the wake of rather miserable sales figures of the two models in question. Both these cars were imported into the country via CBU route which meant they attracted heavy government taxes.

Thus, by the time the Nissan X-Trail arrived at the showroom floor, the SUV cost approximately INR 27 lakh for the automatic variant, which is a lot compared to its direct rivals. Same has been the case with the Nissan Teana, however the company has not discontinued the sedan. Surprising, when most of the Teanas you see on the road are usually hotel fleet cars.

Despite a mid-life facelift, Nissan sold just 163 units in the last two years. As far as the 370Z is concerned, not a single unit of the sports coupe was sold last year as most of the buyers chose the German brands instead.

Next generation Z to be lighter and smaller

Next generation Z to be lighter and smaller

Nissan has confirmed that their next Z car will be lighter and more efficient than the current 370Z. According to the manufacturer the next Z car which is expected to be launched in 2016 will use for the first time a 4 cylinder engine unlike the 370Z which uses a V6 and the car will be a successor to the 240Z. Speaking to Autoweek UK magazine, Andy Palmer said, “We will always produce a Z-car, but to make the next model more relevant in the current economic and environmental climate, it will need to use a four-cylinder engine.”

We expect the 4 cylinder engine to be turbocharged and according to reports in the international media the engine could come from the current Nissan range. It could also be though thatNissan develops an all new engine along with an all new gearbox which could be developed along with Daimler. The styling is expected to take inspiration from the current 370Z and we expect the next Z to have a sloping roofline along with a strong and dynamic front end. Nissan’s design boss Shiro Nakamura has said the work has already started and a concept version could be shown by 2014 which would retain the “excitement, substance and agility,” that the Z series of Nissan cars are known for.

Nissan had launched the first Z in 1969 in Japan and the latest generation Z which is the 370Z has been in the market since 2009. So far Nissan has launched the 240Z, 260Z, 280Z, 280ZX, 300ZX, 350Z and the 370Z. Nissan sells the 370Z in India and the sportscar accelerates to 100kmph in just 5.1 seconds.
