Production of the all-new Nissan Micra has begun at the Renault plant at Flins, France, on the same line as the Renault Clio and Renault ZOE.
This cross-production of vehicles on the same production line is creating significant manufacturing synergies for the Renault-Nissan Alliance, and related benefits for our customers. Following production of the Nissan Rogue at the Renault Samsung Motors Busan plant in South Korea, this latest example illustrates how the Alliance strategy benefits both Renault and Nissan.
The Flins plant presented a great opportunity to bring Micra production back to the home of the B-segment hatchback. Micra is now manufactured in Europe for European customers. The move ensures faster delivery and improved access to the small car for European customers, and allows Nissan to capitalize on the plant’s expertise in building high quality B-segment hatchbacks.
New Micra is built on a revised and updated V-Platform with powertrains being shared by Micra and Clio*
