2020 Nissan IMx
Having launched the Leaf back in 2010, Nissan is one of the pioneers of the all-electric industry. While not as efficient as the recently launched Tesla Model 3 and Chevrolet Bolt, the Leaf remains the best-selling EV ever build as of early 2018. However, Nissan has yet to expand its all-electric lineup beyond this hatchback, and it is now falling behind the competition. This could change by the end of 2018, with Nissan likely to debut a battery-powered crossover based on the IMx concept.
Introduced at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, the IMx is described as "an all-electric crossover concept vehicle offering fully autonomous operation and a driving range of more than 600 km." Nissan also says that the vehicle provides "a glimpse into the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, Nissan’s approach to changing how cars are powered, driven and integrated with society." The IMx also previews the company’s new design language, so it could change quite a few things for the Japanese automaker. If put into production, it could go against the Tesla Model X, currently the quickest, most efficient, and most popular electric crossover out there.
While Nissan didn’t officially confirm a production version of the IMx, an all-electric crossover is the next logical step now that the second-generation Leaf is on its way to dealerships. Let’s find out what it may bring to the table in the speculative review below.

2017 Nissan Micra
The Nissan Micra started life in the Japanese market in October of 1982 with the purpose of Competing against the Honda City and the Toyota Starlet. It was also a replacement for the ever-growing Nissan Cherry which has officially outgrown the supermini segment at the time. Over four generations, the Micra hadn’t changed much – it maintained a bubbly-like, somewhat boring appearance. But, for the 2016 Model year, Nissan ushered in a new generation. Debuting at the Paris Auto Show, the new Micra shared absolutely nothing with the previous models, except for its name. It comes complete with a new, modernized exterior and interior design, a handful of advanced safety technologies, and the option of two, 90-horsepower engines with a 73-horsepower gasoline engine available shortly after launch.
When Nissan pulled the covers off of the Micra in Paris, we here at TopSpeed were quite shocked at what Nissan had done to this bubbly little car. The days of round headlights and boring, lackluster design are long gone. Originally unable to compete with a lot of other vehicles in its segment, the Micra is now able to take on the likes of the Ford Fiesta and the Honda Jazz with pride, and it looks damn good doing it too. So, with that said, let’s take a look at Nissan’s revamped Micra and the newest threat to the supermini segment.
Updated 10/04/2016: We added all the official details and specs on the new generation Nissan Micra.
