Australian pricing and details for the 2018 Nissan Patrol have been handed down today, marking its first major change since the middle of 2015.
Back then, the biggest change was in the accounting books, with a huge $23,400 cut from the newly entry-level Ti model for a new $69,990 number, while the top-spec Ti-L benefited from an even bigger $27,500 cut to $86,990.
The drive range of the new Leaf electric vehicle (EV) is 400km (approx 249 miles) per change (under the JC08 test mode), which is about 40% longer than that of the previous model of the Leaf.
Nissan Motor Co Ltd announced the new Leaf Sept 6, 2017. The drive range was increased by improving the energy density of the battery pack. While the size of the new model's battery pack is equivalent to that of the previous model's battery pack, the battery capacity was increased from 30kWh to 40kWh.
Authorities within Japan’s transport ministry have continued checks on Nissan by raiding two of the automaker’s factories.
Last week, the ministry conducted inspections at four other factories in the country and discovered that Nissan was conducting unauthorized final vehicle checks for most of its domestic models. In response, the carmaker suspended new vehicle registrations with the government and confirmed that it will recall all new passenger cars sold in the country in the past three years.
BloombergTOKYO (Bloomberg) — Carlos Ghosn, one of the auto industry's most celebrated turnaround artists, saved Nissan Motor Co. by managing himself out of numerous tight spots. Now his hand-picked successor faces a big test of his own, just six months into his tenure as Nissan's chief executive officer.
In what Nissan CEO Hiroto Saikawa, 63, has called a "shocking" lapse, the automaker announced on Monday that it's recalling 1.2 million vehicles in Japan after regulators discovered un-certified inspectors approved vehicle quality. The recall covers all models produced in Nissan factories in Japan for sale locally, and will cost the company ¥25 billion ($222 million).
Nissan announced pricing and spec details of the 2018 Frontier mid-size pickup truck.

Nissan Motor Co. is suspected of fabricating documents at factories in Japan to make them appear as if certified inspectors had carried out final inspections on vehicles coming off the assembly line, sources close to the matter said Wednesday.
A government probe found the Japanese automaker had used uncertified staff to check vehicles at all six of its domestic factories, prompting Nissan to announce a recall of more than 1.2 million cars in Japan manufactured since October 2014.

The new Nissan Leaf Concept isn’t the only Nismo study that will be presented at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, as the automaker has applied similar treatment to their Serena minivan.
Said to enhance its performance "without sacrificing the base model's family-friendly, utilitarian nature", the MPV's exterior now reflects Nismo's performance oriented nature, thanks to its new bumpers, wheels, and red accents.
