There’s nothing wrong with your screen.

There’s nothing wrong with your screen. This is a rather disguised shot of the forthcoming Nissan Juke, which will be produced by Nissan at its manufacturing plant in Sunderland, Great Britain, and will go on sale in October. In Europe.

The Juke will be more clearly seen on February 10, at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.

The Juke is said to be predicated on the Qazana concept car that Nissan exhibited at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.

One interesting aspect of the Juke—which is described as a “crossover”—is that it will be positioned, according to Simon Thomas, Nissan’s European senior vp for Sales & Marketing, as “an alternative to the traditional small hatchback in Europe.”

It seems that just as the hatch market is growing the in the U.S., it may be waning in Europe.
