New Small Nissan Juke-Like Full Electric SUV Rumoured
Nissan chief’s have set rumours afoot that there is a new small full electric SUV in the pipeline which will have similar dimensions to the Nissan Juke.
The new full electric compact SUV is expected to be a scaled-down version of Nissan's new full electric Ariya.
The Ariya is Nissan’s new eye-catching and spacious full electric SUV with coupe styling, built on the new CMF-EV platform, specifically for electric vehicles.
The new platform, developed by the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi alliance was built with flexibility in mind, meaning it can be scaled up or down to underpin varied sizes of SUVs/Crossovers.
Nissan’s European General Manager has already hinted strongly that a small full electric Crossover/SUV would be a good addition to the Nissan line-up.
The Ariya (pictured left) caused quite a stir when it was first unveiled as it sports something of a futuristic look. It also packs a punch to match the looks, a standard model can get you from 0-62mph in around 7.5 seconds, while a special performance model can pull you from 0-62mph in a swift 5 seconds.

Nissan are no strangers to the SUV/Crossover segment, the Qashqai is one of the oldest Crossovers and it has been around longer than most, it is also the best-selling Crossover in the UK.
The Ariya should help Nissan diversify its SUV/Crossover range as it adds something different alongside the more practical Qashqai.
The latest new 2021 Nissan Qashqai sees a host of improvements, upgrades and additions in response to the ever-increasing competition in the mid-sized SUV/Crossover segment.
Nissan have been at the forefront of electric car development, the Nissan Leaf was the first mass marketed EV car and the first to exceed 400,000 sales around the world.
The new Nissan full electric compact SUV would be competing with vehicles like the Peugeot e-2008, MG ZS EV and the Hyundai Kona EV.
As manufacturers expand their full electric car range, the additional competition is sure to see improved new electric car deals available to consumers.
