has officially announced that it will supply the Mazda5
minivan to Nissan
beginning in May of this year. But before you go dreaming of a Nissan micro-minivan here in the United States, know that this will be a Japan-only affair. As of this writing, mum's the word on what the Nissan-badged Mazda will be called in the automaker's home market. The Mazda5, or Premacy as it's known in Japan, will "enrich [Nissan's] minivan lineup in the Japanese market" - a place where small MPVs are sold in great volume.
This is not the only collaboration between Mazda and Nissan in Japan. Currently, Mazda provides its Bongo Van/Truck to Nissan under the name Vanette. Likewise, Nissan supplies its AD/AD Expert to Mazda, sold under the name Familia Van. Follow the jump
for the official press release.
