Nissan Micra: What we know about its new electric generation

The popular Nissan Micra, a city car, will transition to electric power in its sixth generation. This move is part of Nissan’s alliance with Renault, similar to the fifth generation of the Micra, which shared many components with the Renault Clio.

The upcoming Nissan Micra is expected to use the CMF-B electric platform, shared with the new Renault 5. Both electric city cars will feature the same electric motors and batteries. The Micra will utilize the ePT-100 kW electric motor from the R5 E-Tech, available in two power outputs, 120 and 150 horsepower. Initially, the Japanese version of the car may come with the less powerful of the two options.

In terms of range, the new Micra is expected to achieve a range of around 400 kilometers (about 248 miles) on a full charge, particularly with the larger battery option.

While the Renault 5 has design cues reminiscent of its legendary predecessor, the new Micra is expected to have a more distinctive design, setting it apart from its French sibling.

Both the Renault 5 and the Nissan Micra will be produced at the Douai factory, which has been adapted for the CMF-B platform and is already manufacturing the Renault Megane E-Tech. Pricing for the new electric Nissan Micra in Europe is expected to start at around €28,000, not accounting for any country-specific incentives or subsidies.
