Nissan Would possibly Kill Altima, Versa Sedans After 2025: Report

The demise of cheap-ish sedans and small automobiles continues. Perhaps. If hypothesis from Motor 1 primarily based off a future timeline from Automotive Information is to believed, Nissan’s Altima and Versa sedans are gone after 2025.

 Automotive Information has its ears near the business — shut sufficient that it has a fairly good concept of what fashions are coming and what’s going away for future years primarily based off information and inside sources. Its future product timeline for Nissan exhibits an finish for the Altima and Versa in 2025. These two going away could possibly be making means for a new EV sedan that’s supposed to come back in 2026, in line with Auto Information.

After all Nissan wouldn’t touch upon future product information.

The axing of the Versa would, it doesn’t matter what you consider the automobile itself, be unlucky. It will be the demise of yet one more low-cost small automobile for the market. At one time the Versa was the most cost effective new automobile in America at $9,995. Positive it was a penalty field, however it was low-cost. Because the years went on, it grew right into a bland, nondescript automobile that folks with low credit score scores might get into with low down funds. A redesign in 2019 made the automobile far more interesting than it ever was. Sadly, although, it’s a sedan, and Nissan would slightly you purchase a Kicks crossover as an alternative.

If the guillotine comes for the Altima, that’ll be a head scratcher. The demise of the sedan is basically over exaggerated; Ford offered over 110,000 Fusions a yr earlier than it went away for example. And the Altima nonetheless sells effectively, all issues thought of. In truth, it was Nissan’s second-best promoting automobile in 2022 after the Rogue with 139,955 offered. Almost 79,000 Altimas have been offered up to now this yr; thats sufficient for it to maintain its second place gross sales place. So it’s not as if this factor went from promoting over 100,000 items to simply 50,000. It’s nonetheless promoting.

The Versa’s gross sales are a distinct story. Whereas gross sales have been up 115 % in Q3 2023, Nissan has nonetheless solely moved simply 11,014 this yr.

Regardless of the future holds for these two fashions, recognize them… I can’t even convey myself to say recognize them whilst you can. Who’s going to understand an Altima or Versa? In some way, no matter occurs, we’ll both be stunned by it or by no means.
