Pulsar Pulses Its Way Out Of Nissan’s UK Lineup

The Nissan Pulsar is no longer on sale in the United Kingdom, as the compact hatchback has been removed from the company’s website.

The Volkswagen Golf, Renault Megane, Ford Focus, Vauxhall/Opel Astra and Peugeot 308 rival is still being sold by certain Nissan dealers, reports Autocar, but only for the remaining stock.

Nissan’s decision behind pulling the plug on the Pulsar in the United Kingdom is strongly related to the car’s sales. In the first eight months of the year, the company managed to move just 2,100 units locally, whereas by comparison, from March until August, more than 4,500 Leaf EVs were registered. Even in its first year on sale, the Pulsar sold in 35,000 examples, which was way behind the automaker’s expectations of 80,000.

Nissan introduced the Pulsar back in 2014, and back then, it was advertised as the car with the greatest wheelbase and trunk capacity in Europe’s C-segment. It came with a number of advanced technologies and was initially powered by two engines, a 1.2-liter petrol and a 1.5-liter diesel, both of them with turbocharging, making 115 PS (114 hp / 85 kW) and 110 PS (109 hp / 81 kW), respectively.

    Looks decent on the outside but interior pretty much says why nobody would want one. Especially in comparison to the mazda 3 or 308.

      Nissan just didn’t even try with this model, inside and out.

  • StrangerGP

    Pulsar is a much better car than its fugly predecessor Tiida, but still not good enough. Too expensive, cheap interior, not enough boot space.

  • YUDHA BAGASKARA

    The car is already dead since it was launched. New Leaf is actually identical to pulsar in terms of size. Thank god nissan decided not to give this car a facelift unlike qashqai

  • El de Ngaan

    Only 4 years old but certainly looks like it came from the 2000’s. This can’t even compete with it’s natural rivals like the Megane, 308, the Civic, the 3, the I30 and other left field C-segment hatches.

    • YUDHA BAGASKARA

      Even outgoing civic and auris are better looking than this one

  • Dennis Scipio

    I wished this was sold in the USA, it would have been probably been called the Sentra Hatchback, that’s what the Pulsar is a Sentra Hatchback,

    • Jayen DeHaart

      This car is actually the continuation of the Versa. The Versa Note that we have on sale is a smaller car than the first Versa and much less nicer to drive. I would much rather have this than the Versa Note or the Sentra sedan.
