Nissan has officially announced that it will begin production of its Kicks crossover concept later this year. It will be manufactured at Nissan’s Resende Industrial Complex in Rio de Janerio, Brazil. Initially it will be sold in the Latin American markets. It is likely to be launched in other global markets at a later date.
The Nissan Kicks was first showcased as a concept car at the 2014 Sao Paulo Motor Show and the production version will retain the name. It has been jointly developed by Nissan’s Global Design Centre in Japan along with Nissan Design America (NDA) in San Diego and Nissan Design America – Rio (NDA-R).
