Nissan is thus throwing in the towel and ditching the family hatch. In its place at the Barcelona factory, the firm will build the updated all-electric e-NV200 Evalia, a seven-seat MPV version of the NV200 van. Nissan is currently launching the model alongside the new Leaf in Tenerife, describing it as “a hidden gem”.

The Barcelona plant’s 4,800 employees already assemble the commercial diesel NV200.

“The decisions we have made are the result of a change in the market demand of our European customers and a new trend, which is why Nissan’s focus is to strengthen our leadership in the electric and crossover vehicle segment, ” said Nissan Europe president Paul Willcox.

Contemporary reviewers were, however, distinctly unimpressed. The Pulsar lacked sparkle and received mediocre ratings, in contrast to the much-loved Qashqai. Even ultra-low prices – a base Pulsar is currently £13,275, compared to £19,295 for the Qashqai – failed to stir buyers.

Logically, it would have made sense to produce the Pulsar at Nissan’s Sunderland, UK factory, which already builds the CMF-derived Qashqai.
