Nissan Cube Missing from Automaker’s 2015 U.S. Lineup

Nissan has announced its U.S. lineup for the 2015 model year and there’s no mention whatsoever of a 2015 Cube.

The complete list of 2015 Nissan models offered in the United States include the Altima, Leaf, Maxima, Sentra, Versa Sedan, Versa Note, GT-R, 370Z Coupe, 370Z Nismo, 370Z Roadster, Armada, Juke, Murano, Pathfinder, Quest, Rogue, Rogue Select, XTerra, Frontier, Titan, NV Cargo, NV Passenger, NV200 Compact Cargo and NV200 Taxi.

So what happened to the Cube? Well, a Nissan representative told Motortrend that the Cube is currently available as a 2014 model, but didn’t say anything about a 2015 model.

The boxy hatchback hasn’t exactly topped the sales charts in recent years, but Nissan seemed determined to continue making it. However, the car has been most likely discontinued, so if you want one badly, a 2014 model could be your last chance to buy it new.

The big news for the 2015 model year is the all-new Murano, due in late 2014. Additionally, Nissan announced updates to other models, including the revised Juke, a makeover for the Versa Sedan, the facelifted GT-R and the addition of the GT-R Nismo performance model. There are also new trim levels for the 370Z lineup, a refreshed 370Z Nismo and a 1-mpg highway/combined increase for 3.5-liter V6-equipped Altimas, among other things.
