Report: Nissan Quest dropped for 2010, but a replacement is planned
If you're in the market for a Nissan minivan you'd better hurry and natch up one of the last of the 2009 models as a 2010 model is never going to happen. Automobile reports that the 2010 Quest will never arrive in the U.S. as Nissan ends production of the people hauler until the next generation model arrives in a year or two.
The Quest was reportedly at the wrong end of a numbers game: Nissan needed capacity at its Canton, Mississippi plant and the Japanese automaker's minivan was reportedly the odd vehicle out. Nissan apparently need to make room at Canton for a new commercial truck, which could be based off of the NV2500 concept from the 2009 North American International Auto Show. While the Quest is history for the time being, Automobile says a new minivan is on the way in 2011 or 2012, and will reportedly be made in Japan.
