Japan Quake delays Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet production: Report image

You never know when your luck will turn into bitter fact. Same thing happened with the Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet where an earthquake and tsunami in Japan (March 11) has turned the success board towards delay in production.

The disaster has resulted into disruptions of supply chain and so did hit the brand new vehicle to reach up to its destinations on time. Eventually, the automaker was only able to ship 40-50 vehicles to its customers.

This is certainly a bad news for not only the manufacturer of Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet, but for every automaker, when a disaster gulps down their long awaited efforts. As far as this vehicle is concerned the loss is considered more since it was the fresh launch of the vehicle. Nissan would barely be able to push up the volume of productions until fall or later and this will result into drop of convertible sales further.

Along with a delay, this ultra-niche vehicle will become a bit risky as far as its functionality and price are concerned. However, there are not many Nissan models that commence its price at $47,190 and also there is no crossover coupes can be found with a stowable top. Yet the good news is that Nissan can grab the ropes to climb ahead before it gets too late for the production.
