Nissan will unveil the successor of Nissan Teana, named Intima at Beijing Motor Show. The sedan will be locally produced in China. The company has already released first teaser picture:


The car will inherit basic shapes from 2007 Intima concept:




The Nissan Intima concept that was unveiled during last year's Tokyo Motor Show looked very complete. Now we know why. Spy photos suggest that a production version of the Intima will make its world debut next month at the Beijing Motor Show. As you can see from the above photos, the covered car's side glass and taillamp design definitely seem to mimic those of the Intima show car. As part of the transformation, however, the production ride appears to have lost the smooth trunk-to-bumper transition that the concept displayed, instead wearing a posterior that protrudes a little more and features traditional exhaust outlets. Assuming this all comes to pass, the Intima should be Nissan's flagship sedan in China. More next month when things get underway in Beijing.
Nissan's presence at the Beijing Motor Show (or 2008 Auto China, if you're kicking it new school) will apparently be marked with the unveiling of the production version of the Intima sedan, originally shown in concept form at last year's Tokyo Motor Show. The teaser above lends credence to spy photos procured by Autoblog Chinese that showed the coupe-ish sedan partially uncovered on its way to or from a photo shoot. The Intima will be positioned as a new flagship model for Nissan in China, but surprisingly, it doesn't carry the same forked headlamp arrangement that originally made its debut on the 2009 Maxima and is expected to infect the rest of Nissan's lineup in years to come.

New Nissan Teana to go on sale in mid-June.

May 8, 2008 - Sources from Dongfeng Nissan, a joint venture by China Dongfeng Motor Company and Nissan, said that its Xiangfan plant has stopped producing the old Teana but turned to the new Teana.

The old Teana was the first Teana model by Nissan. Introduced by Dongfeng Nissan in 2005, Teana went on sale in September of the same year. Yang Song, marketing director of Dongfeng Nissan, said that production of old Teana has all stopped. Nationwide dealerships of Dongfeng Nissan are expected to sell out the rest Teana vehicles -- now less than 4000 units – with one month.

The all-new Teana lineup, designed according to Chinese standards and China consumer needs, comprises the Teana and Teana XV models. New Teana is equipped with CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) and the fourth-generation VQ engine available in 2.0L, 2.5L or 3.5 L emissions. Powering the Teana XV is either 2.5 or 3.5 liter engine. On April 20, the all-new Teana was unveiled by Carlos Ghosn, president of Nissan-Renault, for its global premiere at the Beijing auto show. Top executives of Dongfeng Nissan hope this model could make the top three among mid-luxury sedans, namely selling 7,000-8,000 units per month. The Xiangfan plant of Dongfeng Nissan, covering 450,000 square kilometers and boasting an annual capacity of100,000 units, has undertaken this task.

New Teana is expected to go on sale on June 16, a day marking Dongfeng Nissan’s fifth anniversary. Maintaining the same price as old Teana basically, all-new Teana sees Yaris and top Camry as its rivals. Significant changes can be seen in new Teana from the previous one. The all-new Teana is equipped with six-speed manual CVT and its chassis is elevated by 40mm.

Price of New Teana not to disappoint consumers.

May 26, 2008 - Since Teana was introduced to China in 2004, the old generation Teana has sold over 160,000 units, surpassing its sales in Japanese and American markets. As China is the most important market for Teana around the world, Nissan has debuted New Teana in China for its global premiere.

The all-new Teana lineup comprises the Teana (available in 2.0L and 2.5L engines) and Teana XV models, available in 2.5L and 3.5L engines.

Sales of the old Teana has decreased due to its rivals and we hope the all-new Teana can boost the sales, said director of marketing department of Dongfeng Motor Company, a Chinese joint venture with Nissan. The old Teana has stopped production and the Xiangfan plant of Dongfeng Motor is prepared for producing new generation Teana.

As for the price, the cost-rise pressure will not be transferred to consumers. Though the price of Teana has been raised in Japan and America, it will not in China, even there are lots of strong rivals. The selling price, to be announced in June, will not let consumers down.
