Nissan 3 LEAF crossover

Nissan is considering developing a new crossover base on its most popular, eco-friendly model. The Japanese automaker plans to add this new crossover to its LEAF lineup and although nothing has been stated officially, we can expect the new LEAF crossover to be built on the same platform of the LEAF compact vehicle.

Doran Racing 370Z NISMO Finishes in 3rd Place at Lime Rock

Wednesday, July 29th, 2015

Tim Bell Racing #28 Nissan 370Z

Doran Racing drivers, Brad Jaeger and B.J. Zacharias, secured their third podium finish this past weekend for the season. At Lime Rock, this past weekend, Zacharias finished the race 0.117 seconds behind the second-place winner, and although the Nissan team didn’t finish in the top two, they did bring home their 3rd podium finish for the season. After the race, Zacharias said: “I think if we had stayed green, Jade Buford’s tires would have fallen off and given us a shot, but the podium finish is awesome. We just want to get a little higher on the podium. I didn’t have any issues – the car was great. I really have to say that it came down to the pit stops. The Doran team did a great job in the pits. I just tried to work through traffic.” If you would like to read the full article please click on the link below:

Nissan 4 Spa 24 Hours 2015

Later this month, Nissan will be competing in the Spa 24 Hours Blancpain Endurance Series. On July 25th and 26th, Nissan will compete in the PRO class for the first time in 2015 with the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3. Nissan Motorsports revealed that Alex Buncombe, Katsumasa Chiyo and Wolfgang Reip will be sitting behind the wheel for the team and hope to finish in the top three. In a recent interview, Reip said: “As always I will push hard to get the best possible result, remembering that anything can happen in 24 hours. I love this track. I know it better than any other circuit, and having the support of my friends and the Belgian people gives me great motivation. I had a practive run in the 25-hour Fun Cup race last weekend. The car was nothing like the GT-R, but I drove for almost 10 hours in a lot of traffic, so it has really helped me to prepare for the Spa 24 Hours.” If you would like to read the full article please click on the link below:

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Nissan 4 pushing eVs on peeps

Renault-Nissan Alliance CEO, Carlos Ghosn, is fired up about EVs and has every reason to be excited. The article that was posted on his LinkedIn account reveals some very interesting points regarding electric vehicles; one of the biggest points made by Ghosn was the fact that last month, Nissan sold its 250,000th EV. This milestone was reached only 4.5 years after the LEAF was first introduced as the world’s first mass-produced, zero-emission vehicle. Ghosn said: “I don’t see other automaker as competitors when it comes to zero-emissions vehicles. They’re allies. And it is great to see the number of “Alliance allies” growing, as other automaker introduce more affordable EVs to compete with the segment-leading Nissan LEAF.” If you would like to read the full article please click on the link below:
