Nissan PH: No sales target for all-new Almera

Nissan Almera

As with its electric vehicle stablemate the Leaf, Nissan Philippines Inc. (NPI) will also not put pressure on the all-new Almera in terms of sales output.

During a press briefing following the virtual launch, NPI President and Managing Director Atsushi Najima said that the company will not concentrate on specific volumes as it is now “focused on customer satisfaction.”

We believe that this will be one of the Japanese automaker’s volume drivers in the country as it is the entry level for their lineup locally. Back in October 2019, the Almera nameplate already had rolled out 20,542 units.

In contrast to its predecessor (which has 1.5-liter engine), the newest edition of the nameplate (introduced in the Philippines in 2013) has a smaller 1.0-liter turbocharged engine across the lineup. The latest powertrain offers 99hp and up to 160Nm of pulling power and is expected to provide a fuel efficiency rating of 23.3 kilometers per liter (based on UNR101 test, extra-urban conditions for the MT variant).   

Here are the four Almera variants and their respective prices: 

In Thailand where it will be coming from, the all-new Nissan Almera is offered in six options, but with no manual transmission option. The said models' price tags start at 509,000 baht (P772,094) up to 659,000 baht (P999,626).

Further, the vehicle is anticipated to drive more vehicle purchases here for Nissan now that it sports a more aggressive look compared to the outgoing model, thanks to its redesigned exterior dimensions, the V-motion grille, boomerang-shaped headlamps and tail lamps, kick-up C-pillars, and a floating roof design.

The all-new vehicle offering now gives its customers the Nissan Intelligent Mobility advantage with features such as the following:

  • Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection
  • Intelligent Forward Collision Warning (IFCW)
  • Intelligent Emergency Braking (IEB)
  • Hill Start Assist
  • Blind Spot Warning (variant-exclusive)
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) (variant-exclusive)

The aforementioned vehicle will be competing in the subcompact sedan market where the Toyota Motor Philippines’ best-seller Vios currently dominates. The segment leader, to note, brought the refreshed model a year earlier than Nissan.
