Update: 08/30/23 6:00 p.m. ET: The recent information states that Nissan has provided a comment regarding this.

Commonly ridiculed, the Nissan Altima is often regarded as a go-to economical vehicle, commonly found in a neglected state, and driven recklessly. However, a new report suggests that its time may soon come to an end as Nissan is reportedly planning to remove this long-standing midsize sedan from its lineup.

Information about the anticipated discontinuation of the Altima originates from Automotive News, part of their ongoing evaluation of future product lines based on insights from suppliers and other sources. It is projected that Nissan will halt Altima production in 2025 without an immediate successor in place. This move shadows the fate of the Nissan Maxima, which is set to cease production this year. Automotive News also reveals that Nissan is preparing to introduce a new electric sedan in 2026 with an unconfirmed connection to the Altima nameplate.

The Drive reached out to Nissan for verification concerning the future of the Altima. “Altima underwent an update in the fall of 2022 with refreshed aesthetics and advanced technology. Our efforts are ongoing in the sedan segment to provide our customers with stylish cars equipped with convenient, engaging, and safety-enhancing features,” stated a representative from Nissan, also hinting, “While we are advancing towards fulfilling Nissan’s Ambition 2030 vision with numerous exciting plans under development, we do not have any details to share at this moment.”

Despite not being an antiquated product, the current generation of Altima commenced production in 2018 for the 2019 model year. Recently refreshed with a modernized front end and an upgraded infotainment system, available in front- and all-wheel-drive variants, the Altima is a proficient sedan designed primarily for basic commuting. However, it struggles in a market that is increasingly disinterested in such vehicles.
