This time without an internal combustion engine. It’s not a new thing, since every automaker is moving away. Hybrid vehicles are already very popular and all-electric cars are gradually taking over. Skyline has long since moved away from GT-R, and will look more like the Infiniti Q50 in the future. Q50 and Skyline, in essence, are the same vehicle, but available in different markets. Nissan Skyline, like the Q50, will be focused on becoming a fully electric vehicle.
2024 Nissan Skyline Review
Nissan discontinued its R34 Skyline GT-R in 2002. Nissan has used the name “Skyline”, however, on its new cars and crossovers. It is now official that the Nissan Skyline 2024 will be released. Nissan claims that the demand for sedans has ceased not only in Japan but also around the world. The conclusion is clear if you consider that Infiniti EX50 and QX50 models are also called Skyline. The QX concept will be used as inspiration for the next Skyline. We are therefore getting a model no one anticipated. We know right now that the Nissan Skyline is going on sale in Japan.
The 2024 Nissan Skyline is a direct replacement for the Infiniti Q50. This sporty sedan, which will be entirely electric, takes much from the QX Concept. This concept can be seen in the QX55 crossover. The QX60 Monograph was also the inspiration for the Infiniti QX60. It is therefore easy to understand what is happening. Nissan has also adapted Tochigi’s plant to meet EV requirements. This factory is responsible for the majority of sedans sold in Japan. The Nissan Ariya EV Crossover is also produced here.
The body type for the Nissan Skyline 2024 is still far from being official. Sedan variants will be available. Many reports claim that Nissan may adopt different body styles including a Coupe version. This is a difficult one to predict because there are so many Nissan and Infiniti concepts. Some QS models are now four-door coupés, but most were crossovers or SUVs. Skyline will continue to exist in Japan and will be an electric model. We don’t anticipate a Skyline crossover.
The 2024 GT-R Nismo rides on a special set of lightweight Rays 20-inch wheels wrapped in Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600 ultra-high-performance run-flat tires with a Nismo-specific compound. These wheels conceal a set of Brembo brakes that have enlarged carbon-ceramic discs. The rotors are 16.1 inches wide in front and 15.3 in the back and reduce the GT-R’s weight by about 36 pounds. The brake system includes high-strength pads and calipers.
The 2024 Nissan GT-R will also offer two new heritage colors, inspired by past GT-R models. The two colors are only available for the GT-R T-Spec as they were in 2021. Millennium Jade is a tribute to the R34 GT-R V-Spec II Nur, one of the rarest GT-Rs. Midnight Purple is a modern version of the Midnight Purple III used on the R34 GT-R. Nissan GT-R customers can choose from nine different exterior colors.
2024 Nissan Skyline Price & Release Date
This new model will be innovative and unique. The Infiniti Q50/Nissan Skyline is expected to have a more futuristic look and feel. It will be a fully electric model, as we have already mentioned. The price is still unknown, and it’s hard to estimate. However, a price of $50,000 seems reasonable. We’re waiting for more information about the interior, range, acceleration, and other aspects of the vehicle. Sales will start in Japan next year. The 2024 Nissan Skyline is not expected to arrive in the US any time soon.
