Nis­san culls Mi­cra and Pul­sar hatch

Wheels (Australia) - - Red Line -

Nis­san Aus­tralia has axed the Mi­cra, Pul­sar hatch and diesel Pa­trol due to slow sales and tight­en­ing emis­sions stan­dards. The Mi­cra’s demise is sur­pris­ing given Nis­san launched a new ver­sion in April last year and it has since en­joyed strong sales. Yet Nis­san says the Mi­cra is not prof­itable. Slow sales were the fi­nal nail in the cof­fin for the Pul­sar hatch, with Nis­san ditch­ing the vari­ant to con­cen­trate on the more pop­u­lar sedan. Also, the Novem­ber in­tro­duc­tion of Euro 5 emis­sions has killed off the age­ing Y61 Pa­trol, which first went on sale in 1997.
