Nissan Celebrates LEAF Sales Milestone

Friday, March 28th, 2014

Through the voice of the people, Nissan has decided to celebrate a huge sales milestone for their most compelling model yet.  The Nissan LEAF continues to make automotive history by becoming the bestselling electric vehicle ever with record breaking global sales of more than 150,000 units collectively. Recent study revealed that owners in 35 countries have save more than $28 million in fuel costs due to the fact that the zero-emissions LEAF does not require gasoline to run. As you can imagine, Nissan is very excited of their achievements and hope to inspire non-LEAF owners to purchase one sometime soon by launching a new digital program called “Real Owners – Real Questions.” The idea behind this campaign is to allow LEAF owners to share their stories and reasons with interested buyers.

Nissan Lends Leaf’s Lithium –ion Batteries to Green Data Center Project

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

 

Great news for Nissan and all other auto manufactures with end-of-life cycle problems of lithium-ion batteries, Green Data Center is teaming up with Nissan and conducting a project to develop technologies to allow urban data center users to reach 80% of renewable power use and decrease their average power usage effectiveness from its current range of 1.6 to 2.0 to less than 1.3. The director of the EV programme at Nissan, Redmer Van der Meer has released a statement,  explaining that this project has been in planning for about two years now and is completely in line with Nissan’s philosophy of the ‘4 Rs’ when it comes to vehicle components  – Reuse, Refabrication, Resell and/or Recycle.  “We have a holistic approach tied-in to our Leaf EV model and the 4R strategy.  One of the things to consider is the battery. Once it is of no use to the vehicle; that it could be utilized in a large-scale storage solution to facilitate the integration of data centers into smart grids, and a greener power supply management platform, would be ideal,” said Van der Meer.

The 2014 Versa Note

Friday, March 21st, 2014

With the Versa Note you get excellent fuel economy in a roomy, comfortable car that is a lot of fun to drive. Nissan created this model by developing everything from exterior aerodynamics that whisper through the wind, to an advanced 1.6-lier 4 cylinder engine, to a virtually gearless Xtronic CVT transmission that maximizes efficiency and performance. This model is a Pure Drive vehicle which means that it has met the industry-average US Federal CAFE standards for model year 2016. Furthermore, the Versa Note is surprisingly spacious and exceptionally accommodating. The smart design minimizes structural interference with the cabin, giving everyone ample room to spread out.

Nissan GT-R a Hyper-Hybrid

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014


This year marks a significant change amongst sport fanatics – this is the year we will see most power production manufactures take a turn towards something that has never been associated with fast and loud – all-electric under the hood. In the past, the more horsepower meant higher gas bill – but things are changing. Nissan is working on their next GT-R model and they have major plans. A Japanese magazine recently exposed a few important specs that have surfaced online in regards to the next GT-R. The magazine assumes that the new R36 will have over 800 horsepower and will function on a regenerative KERS ( Kinetic Energy  Recovery System ) hybrid drivetrain. The toughest challenge Nissan faces now, will be keeping the cost affordable enough for drivers.
