Shanghai, August 05,2008 Sold in China as imported cars for many years, the Nissan X-Trail, one of the purest Nissan SUVs, will be locally produced in China in October, and the Chinese-made X-Trail SUV will go on sale by the end of this year priced at 200,000 yuan ($29,300) to 250,000 yuan, reported China Business News today.

The Nissan X-Trail to be built in China is the second-generation X-Trail model which debuted at the 2007 Geneva Motor Show. It is a new slightly bigger edition, now 4630 mm long, introduced to global markets in 2007 based on the new Nissan/Renault Alliance C-platform platform, with the much improved dimensions, chassis, and engine technology. Exterior and interior decorations will take on a new look as well.


The China-made Nissan X-Trail SUV is likely to have three variants: the standard, luxury and Navigation versions. All of them will be equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine as the 2008 Nissan X-Trail made and sold in other countries.

In the Chinese market, the locally-made Nissan X-Trail SUV will have Honda CRV as its main rival, especially in the pricing. The dynamic, muscular sporty features are expected to win Nissan X-Trail many male customers in China.:thumb:

China-made Nissan X-Trail to roll off line soon.

September 9, 2008 - Nissan's SVU model X-Trail will roll off line on September 19 in the Dongfeng Nissan joint venture and will go on sale in China in October, said xinhuanet.com today. The Dongfeng Nissan 4S stores in Beijing can receive orderings now, with a small deposit, for this Chinese-made Nissan X-Trail SUV.

The Nissan X-Trail car locally built in China will not enter Dongfenmg Nissan 4S stores until next month when it is launched. Sales staff of the stores said that customers who have paid an upfront fee of 10,000 yuan to 20,000 yuan can pick up the SUV by early November. The China-made Nissan X-Trail is likely to be priced at 250,000 yuan or so.

As the locally-made Nissan X-Trail is on the way, the Nissan 4S stores in China have begun to reduce the selling prices (310,000 yuan-330,000 yuan) of the imported Nissan X-Trail cars by 20,000-30,000 yuan. The Nissan X-Trail has been sold in China as imported Nissan cars for many years.

The China-made Nissan X-Trail SUV, based on the second-generation X-Trail model, is likely to have three variants: the standard, luxury and Navigation versions. They will be equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine like the 2008 Nissan X-Trail made and sold in other countries.

In the Chinese market, the locally-made Nissan X-Trail SUV will have Honda CRV as its main rival, especially in the pricing. The dynamic, muscular sporty features are expected to win Nissan X-Trail many male customers in China.

November 3, 2008 - Dongfeng-Nissan launch X-Trail.

The all-new Nissan X-Trail SUV made in China goes on sale in Beijing today, said the Beijing News. The locally made X-Trail will come to the Chinese market in 2.0L and 2.5L versions, priced from 220,000 yuan ($32,200) to 260,000 yuan, cheaper than the imported model by 40,000 to 80,000 yuan.

Dongfeng Nissan, a joint venture between Dongfeng Motor Corp and Japan's Nissan Motor Co, celebrated the rolling-off-line of the X-Trail as the venture’s 1 millionth car on September 19 in its passenger vehicle factory in Guangzhou. The Chinese-made Nissan X-Trail SUV will have Dongfeng Honda CR-V as its main rival, especially in the pricing.

Up to now in the China market, the imported X-trail is only available in a 2.5L version, priced between 300,000 yuan and 400,000 yuan. The X-Trail now is a good seller in Japan, even better than Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV-4. The dynamic, muscular sporty features are expected to win Nissan X-Trail many male customers in China.

The latest-generation Nissan X-trail measures 4590mm x 1785 mm x 685mm. The wheelbase reaches 2630mm, 15mm longer than the previous model. The Chinese made X-trail features some changes in the interior, which is quiet similar to that of Qashqai, a compact crossover SUV produced by Dongfeng Nissan since 2007.

It might be logical for Dongfeng Nissan's X-Trail and Qashqaito to beat Honda CR-V if they highlight the X-Trail's sedan features and maintain its crossover quality.
Dongfeng-Nissan have launched the latest generation X-Trail SUV as a domestically made car, rather than an imported model. The pricing of the new X-Trail shows the difference between a domestically made model, and the imported model which was subjected to healthy import tariffs.

Pricing is now as follows:
2.0L XE Standard MT 4WD: 200,780 RMB
2.0L XE Standard CVT 4WD: 210,780 RMB
2.5L XL Luxury MT 4WD: 220,980 RMB
2.5L XL Luxury CVT 4WD: 230,980 RMB
2.5L XV Flagship CVT 4WD: 250,880 RMB

The launch of the X-Trail in China gives Dongfeng-Nissan an interesting array of vehicles, basically a car in every segment except for the supermini segment, which is expected to be corrected next year with the launch of the Nissan Micra, or Nissan March.

Dongfeng-Nissan’s X-Trail appears to be slightly different from both the first, and second generation X-Trails that were offered in overseas markets.

Dongfeng-Nissans current line up is currently as follows:

Compact MPV: Nissan Livina (5 seats), and Grand Livina (7 seats)

MPV: Yumsun (Made by Dongfeng subsidery, Zhengzhou)

SUV’s: Paladin - (X-Terra in the USA, also made by Zhengzhou), X-Trail, and Qashqai

Compacts: Nissan Tiida hatchback and sedan (Versa in the USA) and the Sylphy Bluebird sedan

Full size sedan: Nissan Teana

Dongfeng Nissan can only go from strength to strengh now it has an offering in every segement, 2009 onwards is going to be very interesting for Dongfeng and Nissan.

Re: 2008 Nissan X-Trail

Nissan sells 2,600 units of X-Trail in November.

December 22, 2008 - The Nissan SUV model X-Trail made by the Japanese auto maker's Chinese joint venture Dongfeng Motor and launched to market on Nov. 3, achieved remarkable sales of 2,600 units last month, said sina.com today. The 2.0L and 2.5L versions of the new SUV sell in China for 220,000 yuan ($32,200) to 260,000 yuan.

The successful sales performance indicate that the robust look, dynamic character and superb functions of the locally made Nissan X-Trail SUV have been well received in the Chinese market. This is another success that testifies to Dongfeng Nissan's excellent brand, product and marketing appeals after its Qashqaito entered China’s Crossover segment triumphantly.

The launch of the new SUV model marks Dongfeng Motor's entry into the top-tier passenger car manufacturers' group in China as it has now become a full-line auto maker with products covering all passenger car models, including MPVs, SUVs, sedans and crossovers. The Chinese-made Nissan X-Trail SUV has Dongfeng Honda CR-V as its main rival, especially in the pricing.

Currently, the joint venture is capable of producing 2,500 units of the X-Trail each month, and it is expected to exceed its sales target of 5,000 units by the end of the year, according to a company executive. The dynamic, muscular sporty features can win Nissan X-Trail many male customers in China.

In November, Dongfeng Nissan achieved sales of 33,417 passenger vehicles (PV), up 60% year on year (against the industry average drop of 16%) and become one of the top three automakers in China by PV sales in the month.

Nissan's X-Trail was launched in 2000 and since then has been sold in 167 countries, with sales of over 800,000 units.
