Nissan Pulsar Nismo A Chance For New European - Market Hatch


New Nissan Pulsar marks brand's return to the European C-segmentThe all-new European-market Nissan Pulsar could spawn a high-performance Nismo hot-hatch, according to one of the brand’s top executives.

Nissan general manager and chief marketing manager for C-segment and crossover vehicles Ponz Pandikuthira told Dutch publication Autovisie the Japanese car maker was weighing the business case for the Pulsar Nismo.

Pandikuthira said Nissan wouldn’t bother with making a ‘warm-hatch’, however, insisting that a Pulsar Nismo would need to be competitive with the best hot-hatches in the world.

“With 200PS (147kW) you are simply no match for the competition,” he said. “You have to come up with at least 250PS (184kW) to seriously come across.”
