Nissan will introduce its newest model, the Nissan terra, in Thailand and Indonesia this year, with Cambodia, as well as other markets in Southeast Asia, following shortly after.
The vehicle was introduced to the region on Monday in the Philippines. After its launch in China in April, the Philippines is the second market worldwide to receive the vehicle.
The spacious, mid-size SUV boasts top-of-the-line engine and driving performance, according to Automotive World, a leading provider of automotive industry information.
The launch of the vehicle, which will be built in Nissan’s factory in Thailand, seeks to capitalise on Southeast Asia’s growing demand for SUVs and new cars in general.
“The new Nissan Terra is being built in and for Southeast Asia. It demonstrates our commitment to making innovation accessible to more customers in the region,” said Yutaka Sanada, Nissan’s regional vice president.
“It marks the latest step in our product offensive for the region. This is an important part of achieving Nissan’s mid-term goals for Southeast Asia,” Mr Sanada said.
The Nissan Terra, a name derived from the Latin word for ‘Earth’, seats seven people comfortably and comes with a full flat second-row seat folding and tumbling function, making it ideal for urban and off-road adventures.
“The ingenious combination of high performance, best-in-class cabin space and Nissan Intelligent Mobility features gives family and friends the confidence to go anywhere,” said Vincent Wijnen, Nissan’s head of marketing and sales for Asia and Oceania.
