New Nissan Almera launched in Thailand

Nissan Motor Thailand Co. Ltd. (NMT), the subsidiary of Nissan Motor Co., has celebrated the launch of the new Almera generation on the local auto market.

After the success of the March model as the first hatchback eco-car, Nissan has introduced the first sedan into the Thai government’s eco-car program, in the form of the new generation of the Almera, which has just been launched locally.

“The ASEAN region is one of the keys to Nissan’s future success. In particular, Thailand is a very important market and strategic base for the region. Our commitment to Thailand is further demonstrated by the launch of our innovative and exciting Nissan Almera today (Friday, October 7)”, said Toshiyuki Shiga, the chief operating officer of Nissan Motor Co. Ltd., at the launch event.

The new generation of the Almera is powered by a smaller 1.2 liter three-cylinder engine which is delivering a maximum of 79 horsepower and a peak torque of 106 Nm, mated to a five-speed manual transmission, while the Nissan unique continuous variable, the XTRONIC-CVT, is available as an option. Nissan says that its new Almera is emitting just 120g / km of CO2 with a very good fuel consumption: 20 km/l.

With a more stylish exterior and spacious interior, the new generation of the Nissan Almera can be bought from 429.000 to 599.000 baht and it goes on sale across Thailand from October 7, 2011. The new Almera is being produced at the NMT plant in Samutprakarn, Thailand.
