Nissan releases first sketches of next-gen Micra ahead of 2010 launch in South-East Asia

In the Top Gear Guide to Unlikely Automotive World Powerhouses, Thailand ranks somewhere around number 72. Fact.

But that hasn't stopped Nissan throwing the spotlight on the home of ladyboys, using it as launchpad for the new Micra. And by lucky happenstance, it will also qualify as Thailand's first ‘Eco-car'. Which is also a fact.
 
So far all we have are this sketches. And by the time the conceptiness has been squeezed out of them, we reckon the car will look almost exactly like a, erm, Micra.
 
Details are scarce at the moment, but we expect to hear more when the Tokyo show opens in a few weeks from now.
 
However, we do know that Nissan will launch the car in more than 150 countries, one of which will be ours, from March next year. That's 78 per cent of the world. Which again, is a FACT.
 
Who says Top Gear isn't educational, eh?

Now share it...
