Nissan to build five-door car for smart USA
The move will provide smart with a larger car in its line-up to cater for US customer tastes.
'We are faced with continuing customer demand for a smart car with more seating capacity,” explained Roger Penske, chairman of the Penske Automotive Group, which sells smart cars in the US. 'Sales and service of the five seater will be carried out exclusively by our approximately 75 smart dealerships in the United States. Together with Nissan, we will bring to market a fully equipped small car for our customers and dealers in the USA. It will fit in well with the smart brand.'
