The Japanese automaker has released its plans for the next few years, with the sporty Nissan GT-R only appearing in the distance.

Nissan wants to update approximately 70% of its lineup by mid-2021. As a long-term plan, the automaker will move to a shorter three-year lifecycle for its core models from its current five-year strategy.

“We are in the midst of a massive revamp of our product line in the US,” said Ashwani Gupta, Nissan’s chief operating officer.

As part of the plan, the Maxima could evolve into an all-electric sedan after a generation change. More precisely, it will be inspired by the IM concept and may appear in the second half of 2022.

A few months earlier, Nissan is due to unveil a successor to the 370Z sports car. According to Automotive News, it will be inspired by the old Z sports cars in terms of design and will be powered by a 3.0-liter V6 – something we’ve already heard and very much hope it turns out to be true.

Meanwhile, the GT-R is also in development, but it probably won’t arrive until 2023. Nissan Sentra should remain unchanged until 2023, after which it will be updated. In the SUV segment, the Murano is due to be completely overhauled in 2022, and the Pathfinder is due to receive the next generation a few months earlier. The same goes for the Armada as well as the X-Trail.
