Nissan drops 240SX revival in favor of a Sentra Coupe

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 22, 2010

Although many of you folks wanted to see a new 240SX from Nissan, it appears that we have bad news, as this car will not be produced. According to Nissan’s chief product planner Larry Dominique, the decision to drop the modern 240SX was taken because an estimated annual volume of 30,000 units simply wouldn’t do the trick for Nissan.

Still, there is some good news though. Nissan is considering a Sentra Coupe, rather than introducing a new nameplate to its lineup.

Furthermore, in the same interview with Wars’s Auto, Dominique also said that the Versa, Sentra and Altima models are set to receive a redesign in the next two years.

The next-generation Versa will receive the new V-platform, currently used by the new Micra (which is not coming to the United States).

Regarding the next-generation Sentra, it appears that this new version will be similar to the one sold in China. Finally, the Altima, which was introduced back in 2006, will also receive a redesign, but Dominique didn’t want to reveal any details.

“(It’s) “a great successful car, a beautiful car. How much do you need to evolve or radically change it?” said Dominique. [source Autoblog via Ward's Auto]
