Nissan Lannia Teased Before Official Shanghai Debut

Let the teasing games begin, as Nissan released one picture followed by a short video to announce Lannia's debut in Shanghai.
Nissan's Chinese adventure with the Lannia started in 2014, when the concept was revealed at the Beijing Auto Show. Back then, Nissan was claiming that the Lannia will be the ideal car for those in their 20s or 30s, in case a production model will ever be built.

That means a potential customer range of around 240 million, but is Lannia up to the task? Well, recent times tell us that it is. Or at least, Nissan thinks so. They claim a production-ready model will be launched on the Chinese market and as usual, there's an obscure photo and a video testifying that.

Nissan officials are also saying that Lannia will be an evolution of the Friend-ME and Lannia prototypes, but it was inspired by rising young Chinese generation.

"Challenging the status quo of sedan design, the production version of Lannia has a muscular and dynamic exterior design. An alluring character line flows from the front through the door section to the rear, conveying energy to be unleashed," says the press release.

So far, all we can tell about the Nissan Lannia is that we're looking at a mid-sized sedan that will go on sale later this year, probably towards the end of summer.

Some voices say it could borrow plenty of features from the 2016 Nissan Maxima, but we'll be able to confirm or infirm that once we see the car in the metal at the Shanghai Motor Show on April 20.
