The Nissan Kicks will be exclusive to South American markets for a certain period.

The initial wave of units will be exported from Mexico to Brazil, before the company’s production facility in Resende starts manufacturing the Nissan Kicks from next year. The brand will invest R$ 750 million in to the plant and hire 600 new employees as part of Nissan Kicks local production.

The Nissan Kicks is said to be based on the company’s V-platform that underpins the Nissan March (Nissan Micra)Nissan Sentra (Nissan Sunny) and Nissan Note. It will be powered by a 1.6-litre flex-fuel (petrol/ethanol) engine paired to a five speed manual or an X-TRONIC CVT unit.
