The Nissan Micra will be replaced from 2024 by a new electric vehicle based on the future Renault 5. Both models will be manufactured in Douai.
Nissan takes advantage of the strategic presentation of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance to unveil the first elements concerning the future of its Micra. The city car, which currently shares the production lines of the Flins plant (Yvelines) with the Renault Zoé, will be discontinued in 2024 during the transformation of the factory into a place for reconditioning used vehicles. Thus, the Micra as we know it will be replaced by a new model, based on the future Renault 5.
A common base with the electric Renault 5
The replacement for the Nissan Micra will indeed share its undersides with the electric R5. The two models will be produced jointly in the Douai plant (in the north of France), with a common CMF-BEV base. This new platform, derived from the current CMF-B which notably equips the Clio and Captur, will be dedicated to 100% electric models. The model that will replace the Micra from 2024 will therefore be electric, with a battery of around 50 kWh, to offer a range of 400 km.
As we see on the first teaser published by the brand, the next Micra (which could also change its name) will have a very different style from the Renault 5. It will leave the square theme for curves, especially on the part before with a unique light signature in the shape of a circle. This luminous ring overflows from the bonnet, and is somewhat reminiscent in its execution of the recent electric Fiat 500.
