The new Nissan Micra will retain its name, autocar.co.uk has learned.
The car is still officially being referred to by Nissan as the "all-new Global Compact Car", but company sources have told autocar.co.uk that it will continue to be called the Nissan Micra or Nissan March according to which market it is sold in.
In addition, the company has confirmed that the Nissan Juke, Nissan Leaf, updated Nissan Qashqai, refreshed Nissan Pathfinder and Navara and the Nissan 370Z Roadster will be on display.
The first versions of the new 'Micra' supermini are likely to hit the road in May in India, where the car is being built at all-new factory based in Chenai.
A year later a saloon version is set to be launched, although it’s unlikely to make it to the UK. In addition, a mini-MPV sharing many of the same mechanicals and built on the new V (versatile) platform will appear in 2012.
More controversially company insiders have indicated to Autocar that the next generation Renault Clio, also set to be based on the V-platform, could end up being built in India too.
This is a move that’s set to upset fiercely patriotic French buyers.
