    Nah - the Note, Micra and Versa sedan for North American consumption are all made in the same Mexican factory. Same platform, same drivetrain, many shared interior pieces.

    Mitsu makes (or made) a Kei car for the Japan market, rebadged as the Nissan Dayz Roox:

    That's the car that triggered the Mitsubishi fuel economy scandal in Japan that walloped Mitsu's share price and made it possible for Nissan to swoop in and buy a controlling stake in the company.

    Versa's rental fleet reckoning = Mirage plan?

    Nissan has apparently decided they're serious about focusing on "quality" sales (ie. cut back on fleet business).

    They put that plan in motion in April, and overall Nissan sales plummeted 28 freakin percent compared to April last year.

    Versa sales: 5998 last month. You have to go all the way back to 2011 to find another month with sales under the 6k level. Many months, 8-10k is normal.

    I wonder if the plan is to have the Mirage & G4 take up the rental fleet slack.
