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.

Actually Mazda is not heading premium, they are returning to premium. Look at what they did in the 60's, 70's, their work are full of excitement.

But oil crisis, building fun cars don't make money, dark time under Ford (Ford screw up Volvo as well).

Now, they are going back to where they belongs, excited with the upcoming Inline-6 FR Mazda 6.

Mazda and Subaru are the 2 with true Japanese spirit, they build what they want to build, insist on their philosophy. Sales figures only come next.
Toyota/Honda are all about capitalism, top the sales and make more money.

Nissan is a bit unsure on their own directions. GTR project sure spawn excitements, but don't really help the sales, and it is 13 years old platform already.
They also struggles and slow to integrate Mistubishi to their ecosystem. They are not like tech company, within few months if acquisition, all systems, B2C, ERP, Oracle, suppliers etc are standardized. Old systems gone.

IMO, they just got stabilized last year. New models will come at higher pace.

Also they need better marketing, more bombastic name of tech from sport cars to be added to their consumers car, even they are completely different thing. Like VTEC, now so many things Honda just use the VTEC name even they are unrelated to original VTEC. Toyota is the best, a lot of tech are licensed from their partners, they just integrate the tech. Their DOHC and VVT-i are from Yamaha, they just put their marketing name. Yamaha have different variants of VVT, VVA, VVT-L(lift) and license them to different customers.

I think Nissan glory days are coming to an end. They look rather generic and bland and suck-ish engine choices in Malaysia. One thing I do like is their interior and their zero-gravity seat. Kudos to them for that. BUt overall, I'm not leaning towards them so much.

Perhaps this will be the game changer

My spouse family use exclusively nissan cars.

Nissan Latio almera cefiro teana x trail

IMHO
Fuel saving yes
No power also yes
Expensive parts yes. Easily broke down parts also yes.
Appearance not appealing also yes

If you are a standard day to day or family man driver Nissan is for you. If u are a spirited driver then this car is not for you

I have a Honda city myself. I liked it more than their sedan.

Overall its a no to Nissan for now.

But u should paultan the image of up and coming nissan that is gonna replace almera sylphy and American teana. Those look really beautiful interior and exterior. I will definitely test drive and consider trade in my Latio if its on par or better than Honda

No complains about Nissan. Xtrail is a good car, looks wise maybe not too appealing but totally functional and good fuel consumption. As with all cars, as long as maintenance is carried out as scheduled, it should serve you well without burning holes in your pocket.

Nissan drivers here go electric and defy... Nissan
But despite findings that suggest otherwise, Nissan buyers in Singapore are taking to its electrified cars with gusto.
FRI, FEB 05, 2021 - 5:50 AM
LEOW [email protected]

Tan Chong Motor Sales will launch a new Note E-Power here early next month, in line with Nissan's aim to get drivers to try electric drive without giving up on petrol.

DRIVERS in Singapore are less certain about switching to electrified cars than their counterparts in countries around the region, a new survey commissioned by Nissan Asean has found.

"The Philippines, Thailand and Indonesia are three countries that are showing maximum positive predisposition towards electric vehicles," said Vivek Vaidya from Frost and Sullivan. The research consultancy polled 3,000 people in six countries, following up on a similar survey conducted in 2018.

Thirty per cent of respondents in Singapore said they would "certainly" consider an electrified car for their next purchase in the next three years, fewer than the 37 per cent who said they would do so on average across the countries surveyed. Thirty five per cent of Malaysians polled said they would do so. Only 23 per cent of Vietnamese respondents gave the same answer.

Mr Vaidya presented the survey results at Nissan Futures, an electromobility conference that took place in virtual form yesterday.


The Japanese carmaker is on a push to electrify its product range. It launched the world's first mass-market electric car, the Leaf, in 2010, and took technical lessons from that car to develop E-Power, a system that uses an electric motor and small battery to propel its cars.

E-Power models drive like electric vehicles but cannot be charged externally. Instead, they have a petrol engine to generate electricity.

Nissan is adding eight pure electric vehicles to its lineup by 2022, and says it wants to sell one million electric or E-Power cars a year by then. Isao Sekiguchi, regional vice president, Nissan Asean, said at the conference that such cars would make life more pleasant, especially in an urban environment. "They are cleaner and produce much less noise than traditional vehicles," he noted. "They help make our cities a better place to live."

But attitudes seem to be shifting away from electrified cars in the countries that Frost and Sullivan surveyed. Although more than a third of respondents in 2020 said they would consider buying an electrified vehicle, half of them said the same in 2018.

The percentage of people who said they wouldn't consider making the jump actually more than doubled over the same time, from 3 per cent to 8 per cent.

Mr Vaidya blamed the ongoing pandemic for nudging consumer tastes back towards fossil fuels. Oil prices fell sharply, he said, which tends to favour traditional combustion engined cars.

Also, declining incomes could have put respondents off the idea of electrified vehicles, which tend to be more expensive than combustion equivalents. Mr Vaidya said interest in electrified cars should still be considered high. "If you adjust the entire thing to the Covid-19 impact, you see one-out-of-three customers is great," he added.

Pandemic or not, Ron Lim, the head of sales and marketing at Nissan distributor Tan Chong Motor Sales, said a tax incentive in the form of the Electric Vehicle Early Adoption Incentive (EEAI) has caused interest in the Leaf to skyrocket.

"Just as a reference, for the whole of 2020, we only managed to sell five units of Leaf but in the month of January alone, we already sold the same number, which is a very significant improvement," he told The Business Times. "Enquiries and test drives of the Leaf have also jumped by more than three-fold compared to the same period last year."

He said the EEAI has helped electric cars reach a more "palatable" price. A growing public charging network and widening choice of electric models are other factors that make him bullish on battery-powered cars. "I believe battery electric vehicle (BEV) sales should see much-stronger growth going forward," he said.

Tan Chong will launch a new Note E-Power here early next month, in line with Nissan's aim to get drivers to try electric drive without giving up on petrol.

The goal is "to really get more people to buy into the performance and benefits of electric motor-driven vehicles first, so that it will be easier for them to switch to full BEVs in the future," Mr Lim said.

Despite the downbeat findings of Nissan's own survey, Tan Chong has seen Singaporean drivers take to E-Power cars with gusto.

E-Power models accounted for 761 out of 1,578 Nissan registrations, nearly half the brand's 2020 sales. Take that, Indonesia, Thailand and The Philippines.

Japanese automobile giant Nissan plans to sell 250 million units of its electric vehicle (EV) across Southeast Asia (SEA) this year, according to a top official.

“We’re excited to bring [the EV] to customers in Indonesia and also to [the] Philippines within the coming months,” Isao Sekiguchi, Nissan Asean (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) regional vice president, said during a company webinar on Thursday.

He was referring to the Nissan Leaf, its mass-market EV launched in December 2010 that is currently available in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong.

Nissan Ariya Shows Its True, Environmentally Friendly Colors For Everyone To See

BY CRISTIAN GNATICOV | MARCH 11, 2021

Nissan has prepped a special color palette for the Ariya, complete with technological innovations in the production line that significantly trim down carbon dioxide output.

Thanks to the water-based paint that allows the shades to be applied at a lower temperature, the CO2 output for the entire paint application process has been reduced by 25 percent, Nissan claims.

As for the finishes available for its electric SUV, they include two new options, named Akatsuki Copper and Aurora Green. The former takes its name from the Japanese phrase for ‘dawn’ and honors the model’s EV tech with its enhanced metallic sparkle that highlights the conductivity of copper wires. The latter is named after the Northern Lights and appears either green or purple, depending on the viewing angle.

Video: The All-Electric Ariya SUV Is Exactly What Nissan Needs




“The ingenuity the Nissan Ariya represents inspired us to adopt an entirely new mindset for color design”, said the color manager at Nissan Design Europe, Lesley Busby. “Ariya is the culmination of Nissan’s electric mobility expertise and a strong statement of intent for the future of EV design. We therefore worked hard to introduce a truly futuristic and technology-driven design language for the colors, analyzing them in detail to create the perfect match for Ariya’s innovative personality.”

Since white and black are the most popular new car colors globally, Nissan has prepped two such shades for the Ariya. The Pearl White is said to offer “more brilliance and clarity than ever before on a Nissan vehicle”, and is complemented by the contrasting black roof. Pearl Black, on the other hand, features an all-new pigment that “elevates the depth of the paint and creates a rich, captivating experience”.

The entire color palette comprises of four monotone and six two-tone options and also includes Pearl Blue, Gun Metallic, Tinted Red, Warm Silver, Burgundy and Ceramic Grey.
