The vehicle will house a 1.5 liter dCi mill that is currently powering Nissan’s Sunny, Pulse, Micra and other Renault Nissan vehicles. The engine can deliver a max power of 85 bhp which makes it as fuel efficient and powerful as Maruti Ertiga, which currently outscores the other MPVs in this range due to its spaciousness.
Earlier the vehicle was codenamed as NV200, and was showcased at the Delhi motor show this year. The vehicle was seen as the possible threat to the available MUVs and MPVs operating currently in the Indian market such as the ToyotaInnova and the Maruti Ertiga. The Nissan Evalia will be the first MPV which will be featuring the sliding doors in this price range. The Nissan Evalia is expected to be priced between Rs.8 to 10 lakhs. The price will surely will give it a competitive edge over the other vehicles in the same segment.
