The fact that one of the most important automakers in Brazil didn't offer a flex-fuel vehicle there is quite a surprising fact. Nissan is fixing this by offering the Nissan Livina, a compact 5-seat van (think Mazda5), with a flex-fuel engine option. The same engine can also be used in other models, so we're likely to see more flex-fuel Nissans soon. The Livina is one of Nissan's "global" cars and is a close relative to the Nissan Tiida/Versa that is also sold in South Africa, China and Indonesia. The car is built in São José dos Pinhais, Paraná, a plant where Brazilian Renaults are also manufactured. Obrigado to Gustavo for the tip.
