Nissan to enter Formula E

Wonder whether this has any effect on their Supercar spend in Australia?

It'll be interesting to see what happens. Its just a rebranding of the Renault Formula E effort so it should cost Nissan less as they don't have to set up a team.

I think the question is-if Nissan commit to a new car will they stick with the Kellys?

Formula E has no rounds in Australia, so Nissan Australia can't rely on Formula E to promote their brand.

Not sure Supercars has been the monster leverage tool they'd hoped for either, truth be known.

Would have been better selling most of the range as fertiliser.

Obviously impossible to prove and if so, by how much, but I reckon you'd be right.

Supercars technical department have been slacking by not brewing up some special fuel for the Nissans, for "parity"... Don't they know that sharing the wins is the best way to please manufacturers?

Considering Nissan dont sell any "sedans" in australia its hard to see what leverage they are getting. Maybe a navara or something in the new look utes category?

Holy SUV batman! Not being a Nissan fan, I didn't know the current range, so didn't believe you. More fool me.

The complete range from their website: 370Z Coupe; 370Z Roadster; GT-R; JUKE; QASHQAI; X-TRAIL; Pathfinder; Patrol; Navara;

Doesn't exactly scream Supercar entrant does it.

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

It's a very strange range isn't it. 3 sports cars, 3 soft roaders, 3 off roaders.

No sedans, no wagons, no hatches, no city cars, no Leaf

12 months ago they had the Altima, Pulsar and Leaf.

The Pulsar is a hateful little sack of crap in a heavily competitive market full of excellent cars.

The Altima is an odd-looking thing on a category where you are Camry or nobody.

The Leaf only makes sense to the people who sniff their own farts on the North Shore of Sydney.
