It has become clear that Nissan will release Juke’s successor model “Kicks”. According to some newspaper reports, it is will manufactured in Thailand and imported in Japan. This model will be released in Japan in spring 2020.

Currently, the new Juke is produced only in Europe. The Powertrian is a combination of a 1-liter gasoline direct injection turbo engine and DCT, which is not used in models for Japan.

The global model Nissan Kicks is equipped with a 1.5 to 1.6 liter gasoline engine, but it is said that the Japanese version will also introduce a model with Nissan’s own hybrid system “e-Power”.

e-Power uses a 1.2 liter engine exclusively for power generation, and runs by driving motor with the power stored in the lithium- ion battery. It has a smooth acceleration feeling like EV and excellent fuel efficiency. Nissan has announced that it will expand this e-POWER globally in the future, and Kix e-POWER is likely to be one of them.

If the US dollar is calculated at 109 yen per dollar, it will approximately 1.96 million yen to 2.21 million yen. Although it is not something that can be simply compared due to differences in standard equipment settings and consumption tax, in Japan there is an impact if the starting price is below 2 million yen. Here, with high expectations, Nissan wants to predict boldly that the price of the Japanese specification will be from 1.99 million yen.
