Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. has revealed the sketch of its global compact car. This model will be initially launched in Thailand in March 2010 and will be available in more than 150 countries. At the same time, Nissan Motor (Thailand) Co., Ltd. announced that the model will qualify as Thailand’s first “Eco-car.” Thai Eco-car government policy is effective today and will help promote the development of energy efficient vehicles. The renderings somehow reminds me of an Aygo suffering from 'shock' and hence swollen to the size of the Micra (Anyone sees some hint of the previous gen Ford Ka?). The change at the back is quite subtle for a 'next generation vehicle' while the front doesn't really look exciting either. I foresee this Micra/ March to be another boring run about which is quite disappointing actually given the fact I was smitten by the current generation when it first debut many years back.
