After 18 years, three models and more than 2.3 million vehicles,today marks the end of production for the Micra at Nissan’s Sunderland plant.


The Nissan Micra commenced production in 1992 and won the European car of the year the following year, the first Japanese vehicle to do so. The first model, the K11, was produced until 2002 and replaced by the K12. In its first year of sales, the K12 sold over 180,000 units and later spawned the coupé convertible model, the C+C. The coupé was designed at the London-based Nissan Design Europe studio and developed at the Nissan Technical Centre Europe at Cranfield, Bedfordshire.


Production of the next generation of Micra will be shifted to India while the Sunderland plant will assume responsibility for the manufacture of the new Nissan Juke crossover vehicle.


The last Micra will roll off the factory floor late Friday night and the factory will shutdown for two weeks from July 23. Sunderland is currently undertaking the second stage of its Juke production trial which will shift in to full operation in August.

i always found that shifting production was a bad thing, fords were never the same after they did it ,i know that from personal experiance ,my first focus was british and i loved it then got a new one that was built abroad and the workmanship was diabolicle a real discrace,the welding looked like my daughter had had a go ,i had a tow bar fitted and the fitter commented on how bad the repair hd been done ,i said it aint been repaired thats how it came and he was astounded ,thats when i moved to nissan and been really happy i made the move,i currently own a 2010 qq but my wife is going for a juke when financial situation improves ,BUT she wants a pink one ??? so respray will be in order as im sure thats not on nissans pallet lolEdited by: NISSAN FAN
