Nissan Pulsar axed from sale in the UK

Post by Rob » Tue Sep 11, 2018 1:26 pm

Nissan has removed the Pulsar family hatchback from sale in the UK as production of the car at its Barcelona plant ends.

The Vauxhall Astra and Ford Focus rival is now no longer available to order or configure on Nissan's website, although dealer stock might still remain available in certain showrooms.

The Pulsar has only been on sale since 2014, the same length of time as the second-generation Qashqai, which has recently been facelifted. The current Juke has also outlived the Pulsar despite going on sale way back in 2010.

Just 2100 Pulsars were registered in the UK up until August this year. By comparison, Nissan has registered more than 4500 Leafs since March, despite a base model costing almost twice that of the cheapest Pulsar. Even in the first full year of the Pulsar's life, it struggled to meet expectations; Nissan was aiming to sell 80,000 a year, but only 35,000 found homes in 2014.

We drive a UNIQUE beauty.

Pulsar is the perfect city car for tall men: short chassis, awesome interior space and up to 190HP power.

This is my most favourite car, loving her, loving her and loving her!!

I agree it's basically a damn good car. Yes it has its faults but then don't they all. Nissan/Renault have really missed a trick by failing to market it properly. Resale values will take a hit but as I don't plan to sell mine that's not a problem for me.
