The 2014 Nissan X-Trail will be launched on the China car market in March next year. Price will start around 220.000 yuan. The Nissan X-Trail will be made in China by the Dongfeng-Nissan joint venture, manufactured in a new factory in Huadu City in Guangdong Province.
The current Nissan X-Trail, made by Dongfeng-Nissan as well. Price starts at 207.800 yuan and ends at 269.800 yuan. Power comes from a 144hp 2.0 and a 184hp 2.5. The 2014 Nissan X-Trail will be powered by the same 2.0 and by a slightly more powerful version of the 2.5.
Nissan X-Trail is the largest SUV that Nissan produces in China. The Nissan Qashqai is also produced by the joint ventue, but the giant Nissan Patrol is imported.
Looks like the production location is changing from Zhengzhou to Huadu.
Will Dongfeng sell the Zhengzhou plant?
By the way, it’s said this big new Huadu plant is very environment- friendly, using water-based paint and recycling 100% of the water it uses.
I believe that DongFeng Nissan wholly owns and controls Zhengzhou Nissan, Dragin. The Zhengzhou plant will continue to operate.
X-trail ? Looks more like the Qashqai, known as the Nissan Dualis in Japan and Australia
