Nissan even unveiled an electric R32 Skyline GT-R, but it was just a conversion project from the brand.
According to a media report, the iconic ‘Skyline’ name from Nissan could soon be reborn as an EV.
The report mentions that the next Nissan Skyline models will come in the form of an SUV, as well as a powerful electric fastback.
The new Skyline SUV will be based on the Nissan Ariya and is expected to debut as early as 2025. The Skyline electric SUV could have around 450 BHP of power output and will be sold in the US under the Infiniti brand. There will also be a 4-door fastback version, which will get a dual-motor configuration, powering all four wheels and producing around 443 BHP.
The ‘Nissan Skyline’ is an iconic name in the brand’s sports car history. The nameplate was born in 1969 when Nissan merged with Prince Motor Company – the original makers of Skyline. While there were plenty of Skyline facelifts and even GT-R versions, the nameplate rose to fame in 1989 with the R32 Skyline GT-R. Later in the 90s, the Skyline GT-R models earned the nickname “Godzilla”.
