Nissan has commenced work on a new concept that will preview an all-electric crossover.
The vehicle is expected to debut later this year, be dubbed the Vmotion 3.0 and will follow in the footsteps of the Vmotion 2.0 that debuted earlier this year. According to company executives, it will focus on electrification, on-the-go connectivity and autonomous driving.
We've seen new cars bundled with all sorts of optional extras, from bicycles to performance driving lessons. But a drone? That's gotta be new. Yet that's exactly what Nissan is offering – in some markets, at least.
The Japanese automaker has announced a new version of the X-Trail called the X-Scape, which comes bundled with a Bebop 2 – a remote-control quad-copter made by French electronics manufacturer Parrot.
The facelifted 2018 Nissan Qashqai could debut the company’s ProPilot semi-autonomous driving technologies when it arrives here early next year.
Richard Emery, Nissan Australia’s managing director and CEO, told CarAdvice at the local launch of the updated 2017 X-Trail range that, while not confirmed for our market yet, the driver assistance systems could be offered here with the updated crossover.
If you’re the owner of a classic Nissan performance car then today is your lucky day as the Japanese marque has announced that it will start producing a number of parts for its most iconic models.
Drive Tribe reports that Nissan will set up a Heritage Parts Program through its Nismo division in the near future and begin churning out any spare parts enthusiasts may need, inevitably hurting aftermarket suppliers but finally providing owners with brand new OEM parts that will fit and function perfectly.
Nissan has announced a partnership with self-driving technology company Mobileye to accelerate the advancement of autonomous vehicle technologies.
Self-driving Nissans fitted with Mobileye NV chips and sensors will now generate anonymized, crowd-sourced data that will be used to create the next-generation of maps from the company. In doing so, the Japanese carmaker has joined the likes of Volkswagen and BMW.
Nissan is no stranger to racing, but you won't find many of its vehicles on the rally stage – not in the WRC, nor in the Global or World Rallycross Championships neither. But it has converted one of its cars for a rally this summer. And while it's a hatchback, it's not the Micra, Note, or Pulsar you might expect.
Set to take part in the Mongol Rally this year is the Leaf, if you can believe it. Called the Leaf AT-EV (for All Terrain Electric Vehicle), it's based closely on the road-going model, but has been modified extensively for the purpose.
