At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Nissan is preparing to surprise us all by debuting its newest Nissan Qashqai and JUKE, which are considered to be two of the biggest automotive success stories in recent time. Nissan plans on unveiling a new concept vehicle that answers the question: What would happen if the company applied the same radical thinking and quality standards to one of the most important sectors in Europe: the small hatchback? The new concept car will provide us with a glimpse at how a future generation of Euro hatchbacks could potentially look if they adopted the new design language.

2015 Nissan Murano: A Fan Favorite

Friday, February 20th, 2015

 

The five-passenger crossover, starting at $30,445, is targeted mostly to empty-nesters looking for a luxury hauler. The Nissan Murano took the automotive industry by storm when it revealed this funky redesigned model. The 2015 redesign truly encompasses Nissan’s philosophy and features and edgier appearance. Nissan cut out the clutter by severely reducing the number of buttons on the dashboard – wood and metal trim add a premium feel. Under the hood, the Murano features a 260-horsepower V6 that is matched with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Nissan has been using the CVT in its vehicles longer than most automakers, but it also had more trouble building one that feels like a conventional automatic transmission.

Nissan Adapts New Wonder Paint

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

The same automaker that revealed self-cleaning paint to the world is now experimenting with glow-in-the-dark paint. Nissan is one of the first automakers to have glow-in-the-dark paint. The color was tested on the LEAF model and although the car appears to be white, it glows blue after nightfall. Hamish Scott created the product dubbed Starpath, a coating that absorbs the sun’s rays during the day and then glows from 8 to 10 hours after the sun goes down. The glowing paint goes perfectly with the LEAF model that is known as Nissan’s eco-car with low charging costs. If you would like to read the full article please click on the link below:

Tsugio Matsuda Shares his Personal Story to Le Mans

Friday, February 13th, 2015

Super GT champion driver Tsugio Matsuda has been announced to be one of the GT-R LM NISMO drivers at this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans race. This is a great honor for the young racer, who was born in Kuwana, a town close the Suzuka Circuit. Matsuda has had a passion for race car driving since a young age. In an interview with Nissan, he recalls often going to the track to watch race events or even getting behind the wheel of go carts. Matsuda reveals that he has always had a love for vehicles and as a small child he collected car figurines, hoping to one day sit in the driver seat of a race car. He credits his career to the very first race he saw; stating that it was at that moment he realized he wanted to become a race car driver. In middle school, Matsuda convinced his parents to let him start carting and only a few years after that he joined the Suzuka Racing School Formula as a scholarship student. It was from then that his career took off and progressed to Formula 3 racing and above. “It’s been a dream of mine to race at Le Mans, and if I’m competing, then I aim to win. Moreover, I will do my best to ensure a great performance for all the fans following us. I am really excited to drive Nissan GT-R LM NISMO,” he said.

Nissan Posts Financial Results and Operating Profit Increase

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

 

Nissan reported that it has improved its financial results in the first nine months of its fiscal year. The automaker’s operating profit rose to 417.9 billion yen in those nine months, representing a 5.2% margin on net revenues that climbed 11.1% to 8.09 trillion. Carlos Ghosn, President and Chief Executive Officer, said: “Nissan delivered solid financial results in the first nine months of the fiscal year, reflecting rising U.S. sales of our latest models and a normalizing yen-dollar exchange rate. We anticipate good full-year results as our product offensive and positive momentum in North America and Western Europe offsets volatility in other markets. Given these trends, along with the continuing impact of currency movements and cost controls, we are today revising upward our full-year financial forecast.” If you would like to read the full article please click on the link below:
