Yes, There Will Be A Next-Gen Nissan Z – As Long As People Want One

Nissan is committed to keeping the Z around as long as there is a demand for it

The new Nissan Z isn’t even on sale yet, and people are already wondering what happens beyond this generation. Will there be there be a next-gen Nissan Z? Given the Z’s heritage, it’s an understandable question, and the answer to that question is a good one.

Nissan’s Chief Operating Officer, Ashwani Gupta, has confirmed to Motor Trend that there will, in fact, be a next-gen Nissan Z. How can anyone confirm such a thing given the fact that the new Z isn’t even on sale and will stick around for at least seven years? Well, Nissan has no intentions of killing the Z as long as there is a demand for it. So as long as people will buy it, Nissan will build it. Of course, this news is only relevant to the U.S. since Nissan has already turned the new Z into forbidden fruit for our European friends across the big drink.

Back to the point at hand, Gupta came right out and said that Nissan “will definitely continue with it.” However, at the end of the day, it’s all going to boil down to what happens over the next couple of years. Nissan is already in the process of rebuilding itself after the massive scandal involving its previous leadership, and the Z car needs to be very successful. 40-percent of Nissan’s sales in the U.S. are expected to be electric by 2030, so te next-gen Z could be a part of that plan if enough people show intrest in the car this time around.
