Nissan pegs eight model releases in the coming year including the Nissan Leaf and Nissan Juke
Suffice to say, Nissan is gearing up for a busy 2010.
After spending the better part of last year trying to regain its footing in the auto industry following the inescapable effects of the global financial crisis, Nissan has finally decided to direct its attention and resources on making 2010 the year of the comeback.
In a recent round-table discussion held at the Detroit Auto Show, Nissan America chairman Carlos Tavares laid out the Japanese brand’s bold plans for 2010, including the upcoming release of eight new models for this year.
Among the models Tavares singled out as primed and ready for the production line include the Infiniti M37 six-cylinder and M56- V-8, the Infiniti QX56 SUV, the 40th anniversary model of the Nissan 370Z, the Nissan Juke, the Nissan NV 2500, the Nissan Leaf, the Nissan Quest Minivan, and a still to-be-named Infiniti model, which, according to Tavares is an “all-new derivative model that will feature different powertrain, features and equipment than currently found in whatever model from which it will be derived.”
From the looks of things, the release of these new models in a year’s time gives us an inkling that Nissan just might be ready to get back into the automotive game.
