Nissan launched a new generation of its global hatchback, the Note, today. The launch party was held at the Osanbashi Pier in Yokohama, a favorite venue for Tokyo car launches. This reporter has taken the summer off from Tokyo, all I can tell you is what was dispatched from Nissan HQ. (With subtitles.)

Apart from its “class-leading fuel efficiency and emission levels,” the Note wants to be remembered (and bought) as “the most user-friendly car in its segment,” (something that should noted with pleasure by the J.D. Power IQS).

Japanese customers can buy the Note with two new engines, the new supercharged HR12DDR (DIG-S) and the HR12DE, known from the Nissan March.

The Note will come to Europe in 2013 where the car will be produced at Nissan’s Sunderland plant in the U.K. 940,000 units of the current Note were sold worldwide since its launch in 2005.
