The replacement for the Nissan Micra subcompact will debut at the Geneva auto show on March 2.
The so-called Global Compact Car is the first new model developed on Nissan's all new V Platform, which has been designed to minimize weight to help reduce emissions and improve fuel economy.
Sales of the new subcompact start in Europe in the autumn following the car's debut in Thailand in April.
Production of Micras for the European market will be moved from Sunderland, England, to Renault-Nissan's new factory in Chennai, India.
Instead of the Micra, the Sunderland factory will build European versions of the Juke crossover, which also debuts in Geneva
The Juke was created by Nissan Design Europe in London to merge the ruggedness of an SUV with the looks and lines of a sports car.
The Juke will be made alongside the Qashqai and Qashqai+2 medium SUVs and the Note minivan at Nissan's Sunderland factory.
Nissan's plant in Oppama, Japan, will build the Juke for other global markets, including the U.S.
The Juke will go on sale in Japan in the summer, in Europe at the end of September and in North America in the fall.
Nissan aims to sell 140,000 to 150,000 Jukes a year with Europe accounting for an estimated 60 percent to 70 percent of the total volume.
