Yeah, likely from Canada. They've sold about 7000 of them since they launched it this year, the majority of those in NY's neighbouring provinces of Ontario & Quebec. Likely someone on a road trip!

The car has done well for Nissan Canada, but I'm not convinced there's a business case for selling it in the US, given the success of the "cheapest car in the USA" Versa sedan, which continues to dominate its segment. Nissan USA sells more Versas each month than Nissan Canada sells Micras for an entire year!
