Written in full, it claims the French origins of the manufacturer.

It also evokes the colors and warmth of the southern hemisphere.

Its phonetics are harmonious, balanced and easy to pronounce by all, while being international ”.

Developed on the Nissan Qashqai platform, the Austral will measure 4.51 m long and should offer hybrid engines.

Its launch is scheduled for next spring.
