Nissan aired a video at the ongoing Auto Show in US, giving hints of its future plans.
Nissan has big plans for the American market, where it plans to launch five models by the end of next year. The company teased five new models at the ongoing New York Auto Show (NYIAS); all under wraps – but not hard to recognise even under those white sheets.
The one standing in the center is the new 2013 Altima that has already been unveiled at the New York Auto Show. This is probably the most important car for Nissan in the American market, and will be available by this July. On the extreme left is the Versa hatchback that looks a slightly different from the sedan version (Nissan Versa is rebadged as Sunny in India). The next in line is the Pathfinder - the concept form of this huge crossover was displayed recently. Second from right is most probably the next generation Rogue, while the last one standing at the far right is the new Sentra which looks quite similar to the Altima - but with more aggressive styling that is visible even under the wraps.
The above cars are not relevant to us in India at this moment, but then Nissan has reiterated it time and again that India is a strategic market for them; and they plan to launch many more models here in the coming years. So, there is a dim possibility that one of the above might be brought here in a while.
