It is manufactured at Nissan's plant in Washington, England, as an indirect successor to the conventional medium-sized Almera hatchback which ceased production at Washington in November 2006. The direct successor to the Almera in Europe is the Tiida; however it has not been officially imported to the United Kingdom, although it has been available since March 2009 with models sourced by the Arnold Clark dealership network from the Republic of Ireland.[9]

The Nissan Note used to be available in three specifications, the 'S', 'SE' and 'SVE'.
