New Nissan Pulsar
20th December, 2010
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today unveiled an all-new sedan
model at the 8th China (Guangzhou) International Automobile Exhibition. Using the famed ‘Sunny’ name in
China, this new model will go on sale in China in January 2011 and then progressively across 170
countries worldwide including Australia under different vehicle brand names.
Ever since the introduction of the Nissan Tiida, local Nissan dealers have been calling for the
return of the highly regarded "Pulsar" name. This car, the new Sunny, is likely to be it!
The Nissan Sunny was first introduced in China in 2003 and was significant as the first locally built
model from the new Dongfeng Nissan partnership. The Sunny quickly helped establish the Nissan brand in
the passenger vehicle market in China.
A projected class leader in fuel economy, the all-new Sunny is expected to appeal to young families
in their 30s looking for a medium sized sedan that combines a dynamic upscale design with the space,
quality and features associated with the Sunny and Nissan brand.
Combining the proven Nissan 1.5-litre HR15DE engine with dual injectors and a new-generation Xtronic
CVT with an auxiliary transmission, Sunny delivers ease in handling for city driving.
MacPherson struts are used for the front suspension and a torsion beam for the rear suspension,
making for sporty and agile driving at low speeds,and steady and stable driving at higher speeds.
The new Sunny will be produced in Dongfeng Nissan’sHuadu Plant in Guangzhou for the Chinese market.
