Nissan Motor Co. Australia Statement Regarding Product Line-Up Changes

MELBOURNE, Australia (22 April 2016) – Nissan has today announced changes to its product line-up in the Australian market.

As a result of a regular review of its passenger car line-up, Nissan has decided that there is no longer an adequate business case for offering Micra for sale in the Australian market.

Nissan will also rationalise its Pulsar offering, concentrating on its Pulsar sedan models and removing the hatch grades from the Pulsar range.

The Patrol wagon (Y61) and Patrol cab chassis (UY61) have also now entered ‘run out’ phase, succeeded by the Patrol V8 (Y62) that launched in the Australian market in February 2013.

Affected models remain on sale in Nissan dealerships across Australia, with the expectation that remaining stock will sell out in the latter part of the 2016 calendar year.

All three decisions are only relevant for the Australian market and do not affect any other Nissan markets globally.

“These decisions are in line with our commitment to running a robust business in Australia, led by strong products including QASHQAI, X-TRAIL and Navara,” said Nissan Motor Co. (Australia) Managing Director and CEO Richard Emery.

“Complete after-sales service and technical support for the affected models will continue to be available from our Australian authorised dealer network.

“Nissan is committed to maintaining a strong and healthy business in Australia, which includes our national sales company, Nissan Financial Services, Nissan Casting Australia plant, field quality centre and motorsport activities.”
