Fred Diaz, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing and Operations for Nissan North America, said: “Of the hundreds of thousands of miles driven during the development of the all-new 2016 TITAN XD, the miles driven by the truck experts of the Texas Auto Writers Association were the most critical miles driven to date as we prepare to launch our new truck.”

Nissan’s Impressive Autonomous Driving Technology Tested in Tokyo

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

Nissan 3 driving technology explained

Earlier this week, before the start of the Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan took its Intelligent Driving prototype out on the streets of Tokyo, during one of the busiest times of the day – to see what this car can really do. Early morning commuting in Tokyo is considered one of the worst times to drive, which is why Nissan thought it would be the perfect scenario testing. The car handled itself with ease; in fact, the Nissan Engineer, Tetsuya Lijima, only had to take control of the vehicle one time – when they were at an intersection, turning left and there were no lines in the road for the car to follow. “This is not perfect. The driver must be prepared and we must keep the driver involved.” Lijima believes that the technology’s biggest obstacle to overcome will be driver complacency. It is easy for the driver to forget that he is still responsible for maneuvering the vehicle. Lijima admits that it is easy for the driver to become complacent. However, the technology’s most impressive feature is its ability to react smoothly and quickly when being cut off. Automotive News said: “The braking was controlled and precise rather than panicked. The car functioned like an experienced driver.”

Nissan Making Cars for Generation-Z Drivers

Wednesday, October 14th, 2015

Nissan 3 touch screen concept car

Nissan explained in a recent article that Millennials are no longer the most talked about consumers; in fact the Japanese automaker revealed that the next targeted consumer base is made up of purely those categorized as generation-Z. Nissan’s latest concept car, known as the Teatro for Dayz, has been designed for those born after the late 1990’s – also known as “post-millennials.” For a generation who lives behind a screen, the Japanese automaker delivered a vehicle made essentially out of screens. The Teatro for Dayz is able to match any given mood of its Gen Z passengers. The concept car is white by default, and when the car is off, all the driver see is a steering wheel, an accelerator, and brake pedals. Coast Nissan will be sure to keep you updated as this story develops.
