Nissan Nismo Variant Of New Pulsar Euro Hatch


Nissan NISMO Variant of new Pulsar Euro HatchThere's a good chance that Nissan will be making a NISMO version of their recently revealed Pulsar hatch. They’re entering a market they’ve been absent from for a long time (nobody remembers the pre 2005 Almera…) and it’s a sector where all manufacturers also have a believable hot version of their car – even Kia has one now…

That’s why Autocar’s brief talk with Nissan’s Andy Palmer was quite revealing. Palmer said, in regards to a Pulsar NISMO, “It’s not something I’d like to confirm now, but would a C-segment hatch be the great place to have a Nismo? You might say so.”

Moreover, he went on to say that “Wherever you could imagine an S or GT grade in a passenger car line-up, we’ll have a NISMO. Generally speaking, we’ll have two levels of NISMO, this is very important because that was the original concept of NISMO, this democratisation of performance.”
