Nissan Micra diesel for launch within 6 months, during Christmas in India

After the roaring success of Micra petrol, Nissan Motor India Private Limited is gearing to launch Micra with a new diesel motor in India. Nissan is overwhelmed by the way Micra is received in the country and within a period of six months the automaker is confident to bring the diesel version if the Micra into the country.


Nissan Micra diesel is set to hit the showrooms this Christmas in India, says Nissan. With Micra diesel launch, the company is confident that it would fulfill the discerning needs of Indian customers and add another variant to its product kitty.


Nissan Micra diesel has a three cylinder 1.5 L CDRI engine that produces power of 65-70 bhp and torque of 150-160 Nm. The new diesel motor greatly improves the car’s drivability with a fuel efficiency figure of 18.06 kmpl approved by ARAI. This is the same engine that powers Nissan’s Logan and has proved its mettle there too but given the fact that Micra is a hatchback and lot lighter than Logan, we can expect better performance with the same power train.


The other features of Nissan Micra that we expect in the diesel variant as well will be a Start-stop technology that comes for the first time in a hatch together with a keyless entry and driver airbag. Micra which is first made in India global compact car by Nissan is based on Versatile ‘V’ platform and is produced at the Oragadam facility in Chennai.


The automaker aims to make it big this time with the Micra diesel engine and wants to see a replay of success the way it experienced for the Micra petrol when it was launched in July, 2010. Nissan has sold around 4500 units of the Micra since its launch. The car will be pitted against the rival diesel models such as VW Vento, Maruti Swift and Hyundai i10.


The company is still tight lipped about Nissan Micra diesel price tag but auto analysts believe that the Nissan Micra car will be priced around Rs. 4.50-6 lac in the country.
