Nissan_2010_suv Nissan has unveiled a teaser of the forthcoming compact SUV that the carmaker will start selling in 2010.

Nissan might have the magical potion with the Qashqai. After years of failure with the Sunny and Almera models, the Japanese crossover meets a big success in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. The Japanese carmaker is determined to take the opportunity to expand its lineup by launching a new smaller SUV on the market by 2010. The decision was announced following a visit today by the British Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, to Nissan’s European Design Centre in central London where he met Carlos Ghosn, Nissan’s President and CEO.

The all-new vehicle will be an addition to the current Nissan range and for the Sunderland plant. Nissan will move the production of the next Nissan Micra to India to make room for the future model. The next generation of Micra will be based on a dedicated new A platform that will be used for at least three models. The British government will give a £6.2 million grant to build the future small SUV.

At this stage, details remain scrace. However, Nissan isn’t the only carmaker to paln a small SUV compact model. Mitsubishi and Nissan have recently signed an agreement to build a smaller SUV than the current Outlander model which will be sold on the European market.
