Nissan has been reported to focus more on China with their partner there as their plan goes, I think Sylphy may not come back to South East Asia anytime  soon.

The plan for South East Asia, it may only be MPV, SUV, pick up, hybrid and Electric

Kick should comes in Malaysia after new Almera , that is more certain.

New Xtrail could be the most probable next entry after that but time line is very very very uncertain

Until the TCM is still there controling Nissan Malaysia, better buy other brand.

Famous case of CVT warranty claim on X-Trail by many user. Btw their cvt also not so reliable vs others from overseas markets

unfortunately it's another way round, there's no Nissan Malaysia here
it's Nissan Japan "controlling" TCM here
They are the one who decided what model & what spec that TCM can sell locally

If the Kicks are going to launch in M'sia, it's not because TCM decided to bring them in, but it's the old farts sitting in Yokohama HQ that decided M'sia should get it

Nissan launches ‘Daring’ Brand Campaign for Asia, Oceania
Ruben Manahan IV
September 11, 2020, 8:00 am

Nissan Asia and Oceania is warning those who are expecting a conventional marketing approach to not see their latest brand campaign.

The latest campaign, themed under "Dare the impossible", can now be viewed on their new brand websites for Australia, Thailand and Philippines. The said program is launched first in the aforementioned countries, together with Indonesia, and will continue across other markets.

Such measure would boost the strategy that Nissan in the Philippines launched earlier in the digital landscape, the first Nissan virtual showroom in the Asia and Oceania region. Nissan Philippines President and Managing Director Atsushi Najima said that the latest initiative is to show the brand’s efforts to meet the ever-changing demands of its customers.


The brand reveals its bolder digital-first direction, which has surpassed 93 million views for their first brand-led video in the region.

Nirmal Nair, Vice President of Marketing, Nissan Asia and Oceania, claimed that the latest campaign is far from the strategy that they have put into play.


“Do not expect the Nissan you think you know,” he said. “Today we have a new attitude, new look, new swag, new services, new cars. Brands need to be genuine to themselves. That’s why Nissan has taken this bold step. Daring to be different is in Nissan’s DNA. Our rich history of invention and ‘world-firsts’ defines our innovative present and, now, our promise of a bold future. This campaign is aligned to this direction.”

“We warn those who want traditional approaches to please not watch our new Nissan Brand campaign or they will be disappointed,” Nair added.

Described as a “disruptive” approach, Nissan Asia and Oceania’s Dare the Impossible campaign is a multi-platform strategy that targets to “excite prospects and drive them to the newly structured website, “where they can explore the real Nissan and its proven heritage of game-changing innovations, pioneering technology and its consumer relevance across the region.”

“Building a thriving brand is our top priority, backed by our strategy to be the innovative challenger – supported by electrifying one in four vehicles in Asia and Oceania under our mid-term plan,” Nair explained.

“This campaign aims to ignite the Nissan Brand in the region and paves the way for how Nissan will evolve in the region and our vision for the immediate future which will encompass marketing, sales, consumer touchpoints, dealer network, after sales and communications. All coming campaigns will embody the same Nissan spirit of daring. We are proud to be boldly shaping an innovative and human-centric future for Nissan in Asia and Oceania,” he added.

Nissan is expanding its production in Thailand for popular models like the Kicks e-Power SUV.

Nissan is ramping up production at its manufacturing facilities in Samut Prakan because of increased demand for vehicles produced in Thailand.

The company aims to hire over 2,000 people at its production hub in Asean.

"The increased production comes on the heels of growing exports, in particular for the Nissan Kicks e-Power and Nissan Navara," said Ramesh Narasimhan, president of Nissan in Thailand. "Within Thailand, we also see strong demand for the all-new Nissan Almera, the urban sedan, and the Kicks e-Power."


The rise in production comes after the company had to halt operations at one of its plants in April and May during the nationwide lockdown when demand for cars plummeted.

The Nissan plants near Bangkok export to more than 100 countries.

Nissan recently made a multi-billion-baht investment to enable production of e-Power technology in Thailand, the first location outside Japan.

Kicks e-Power is Nissan's proprietary tech that gives customers the electric vehicle driving experience without the need to charge.

The Thailand facilities produce the Kicks e-Power for the domestic market, as well as for customers in Japan, Singapore and Indonesia.

"The increased demand for Thailand-made vehicles demonstrates the quality of our team and our products," Mr Narasimhan said. "Nissan's investment and additional job creation will positively contribute towards the automotive supply chain and the Thai economy."

I believe is either Toyota Supra or the Lexus LF series. But price/value wise, Nissan is the one to go.

The new Supra cannot challenge the R35, not even close. It's more the level of Fairlady and even that the new Fairlady 400 might still beat it. Lexus LFA is no longer produced so not a competition anymore, anyway price wise is also in a much higher level altogether. Value wise though is the opposite, R35 value has been rather poor, maybe due to the very expensive maintenance and gearbox issues.

Nissan pledges Thai EV hub
PUBLISHED : 5 FEB 2021 AT 04:06

Japanese automaker Nissan believes its E-Power technology will encourage people to buy more electric vehicles.


Nissan Asean has invested billions of baht as part of its plan to help make Thailand an electric vehicle (EV) hub for export worldwide, expecting up to 250 million EVs will hit the streets in Asean.

In a virtual conference on Thursday, Nissan Asean did not unveil the amount of the outlay, saying only it will gradually allocate budget for the plan.

The company also did not specify when the number of EVs will reach 250 million, but cited the latest opinion survey by Frost & Sullivan Co that said 66% of 3,000 people interviewed in six Asean countries, including Thailand, said they expect EVs to eventually dominate the market.

"EV is becoming a mainstream technology to help protect the world environment," said Isao Sekiguchi, regional vice-president of Nissan Asean.

Mr Sekiguchi said Thailand is the first country in Asean that attracted Nissan to invest in the EV business.

The company already developed a domestic supply chain here after relocating its production facilities from Indonesia.

The Yokohama-based car manufacturer aims to use its "E-Power" technology to generate sales.

The technology has a built-in generator that operates while the car is running, keeping electricity in the battery so drivers do not have to charge their vehicles.

Some 76% of Thais interviewed said a lack of EV charging outlets in residential areas is a major hindrance to EV purchases, while 47% said they are worried about the availability of charging facilities in public, said Vivek Vaidya, senior vice-president for intelligent mobility at Frost & Sullivan Asia-Pacific.

His company conducted a survey in Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines, and interviewed 500 people in Hong Kong.

It found younger people in the countries surveyed are interested in buying EVs in the next three years.

The Thai government set a target to have EVs comprise 30% of total car production by 2030 in a bid to reduce air pollutants, notably PM2.5 dust.

"The government knows it needs to do more to reach this goal, using such measures as excise tax reduction," said Dusit Anantarak, senior expert at the Office of Industrial Economics.

***Editor's Note: We should point out that the video incorrectly states that the Ariya has an air-cooled battery pack. It does not. The Ariya is liquid-cooled.

Famed Designer Of Nissan GT-R, Juke, 350Z And Qashqai Now Leads Design Studios In Tokyo And California

BY SEBASTIEN BELL | FEBRUARY 28, 2021

Nearly all of Nissan’s most successful designs of the last two decades can be traced back to one man. Everything from the GT-R to the Juke has had Shiro Nakamura’s influence on it. Since retiring in 2017, though, he hasn’t been quietly doing crossword puzzles by the pool.

The 70-year-old auto industry veteran has been designing at his two studios in Tokyo and Hollywood, named SN Design Platform and Hollywood Hills Design Platfrom, respectively. There, he focuses on new projects that excite him. And that doesn’t just mean cars, and it certainly doesn’t mean Nissans.

“I don’t have to be Nissan’s Nakamura,” he told Automotive News in a rare interview. “I want to be more independent as an individual.”

The small studios handle projects that run the gamut from electric cars to heavy trucks to an electric motorcycle for clients that he is not yet willing to reveal. Nakamura will say, though, that the studios will focus up to 90% of their work on electric vehicles.

But the projects won’t be exclusively automotive. His studios will dabble in all kinds of products, including audio speakers and wristwatches.

“We even do our own programs without a client,” Nakamura said. “You have to explore by yourself. You never know; some company may be interested. I don’t want to be restricted.”

Even during his time at Nissan, Nakamura’s career was not defined by restriction. In fact, it was marked by his relationship with Carlos Ghosn and the freedom that entailed.

Retiring as the Senior Vice President of Nissan Motor Corp in 2017, he left shortly before Ghosn’s fall from grace. The controversial ex-CEO is the one who poached Nakamura from Isuzu (where he created the VehiCROSS) to lead Nissan’s revival. There the designer was given latitude to create innovative vehicles like the Cube, the GT-R, the Juke, and the LEAF.

As to what he thinks of Nissan since he’s left, Nakamura has nothing but praise. In fact, he’s waiting to buy himself an Ariya later this year

Nissan no more new model compared to Toyota, Honda. While Mazda heading premium on prices. If only Mazda keep pricing low and attractive, obviously the sales no rise above Nissan and on par with Toyota, Honda. The US sales for mazda also not kinda great and they also get blamed for rising up their prices.
