There’s a new cheapest car in North America and it’s managed to undercut the competition by a significant margin.
While it’s not for sale in America (yet) the Nissan Micra mini-car will be offered north of the border this year and will retail for the incredibly low price of just $9,998.
While full trim level details aren’t yet available the base Micra will be a stripper with no air conditioning and old fashioned roll-down windows. All Micra models will come equipped with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine making just over 100 hp.
Already known for offering one of the cheapest models on the market, Nissan’s Versa sedan retails for roughly $2,000 more ($11,898 in Canada) or $11,990 in U.S. dollars.
Speaking with AutoGuide a Nissan Canada marketing representative revealed that while he knows of no plans to offer the car in the U.S., he’s already received demand from American dealerships looking to sell the car. With the lower Canadian dollar he estimated that a base Micra could be purchased and imported into the U.S. for as little as $9,000 USD.
