Nissan confirms new full-electric Micra

27 Jan 2022

Nissan is to launch a new electric version of its Micra supermini after the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance announced a £19 billion investment in electrification over the next five years, with the promise of 35 new EVs by 2030. 

Nissan revealed that the new Micra would use the same CMF-BEV as the upcoming Renault 5, and will be built alongside the new French supermini at its Renault ElectriCity, in Northern France. 

Alliance also stated that it will ramp up its use of common platforms over the next few years from 60% today to more than 80% of its combined 90 models by 2026.

The new CMF-BEV platform is set to launch in 2024 and will have enough onboard batteries to achieve a 250-mile range, with the Alliance adding that the platform ‘will be the base for 250,000 vehicles a year’. 

Alongside the CMF-BEV, the Alliance will manufacture four other platforms, including the CMF-EV which will be used in the upcoming Nissan Ariya and Renault Megane E-Tech Electric. 

“This all-new model will be designed by Nissan and engineered and manufactured by Renault using our new common platform, maximizing the use of our Alliance assets while maintaining its Nissan-ness,” said Nissan Chief Operating Officer Ashwani Gupta.

“Succeeding our iconic Micra, I am sure this new model will provide further excitement to our customers in Europe.”

Alliance chairman, Jean-Dominique Senard added, “The three member-companies have defined a common roadmap towards 2030, sharing investments in future electrification and connectivity projects. 

“Together, we are making the difference for a new and global sustainable future; the Alliance becoming carbon neutral by 2050.”
