The all-new Nissan Terra frame-based SUV will be the first vehicle from Nissan’s frame and LCV division to launch under the company’s midterm plan, Nissan M.O.V.E to 2022, when the vehicle premieres in China this spring.
Nissan sees its frame and LCV business unit, made up of frame SUVs, pickups, vans, light-duty trucks,as critical to achieving the company’s midterm plan objectives. One in every six Nissan vehicles sold globally is a frame-based vehicle or an LCV, and the company is focused on capturing this division’s full potential.
The business unit’s objectives under the midterm plan include increasing sales by more than 40% by 2022 and becoming a global leader in pickups and frame-based SUVs.
The Nissan Terra goes on sale this spring, first in China, with other Asian markets soon to follow.
In 2017, Nissan’s global frame and LCV sales reached 907,929 vehicles—about a 7% increase from the prior year.
