Nissan put a car in a massive Zorb and pushed it down a hill

Nissan put a car in a massive Zorb and pushed it down a hill

Normally, the Nissan Note is a small, reliable city car, and not prone to rolling down hills. Nissan clearly decided that simply wasn't good enough, and so constructed a vast inflatable Zorb ball so as to capture a Note and then send it tumbling. Worry not, though: it's all in the name of demonstrating the car's safety features, which Nissan has dubbed "Safety Shield."

2018 Nissan GT-R tipped to use carbon fiber and hybrid power

2018 Nissan GT-R tipped to use carbon fiber and hybrid power

Nissan has been making the GT-R since 2007 and it's a potent beast. The car isn’t exactly cheap in its own right, but it punches much higher than its weight class costing significantly less than some of the cars it runs with on raw performance. Outright performance is a big deal for the GT-R, but it seems Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn has fired up his troops to make a version of the GT-R for 2016 that is more desirable.

Infiniti’s Q50 can drive itself (so this driver rode shotgun)

Fresh from the road-safety division of the "just because you can, doesn't mean you should" department, a self-driving example of how our cars are certainly smarter than ever. Infiniti's Q50 has, like many luxury sedans of the moment, a host of driver assistance aids that can collectivity keep the car in lane, maintain pace with surrounding traffic, and generally mimic some of what Google and others are working on for autonomous vehicles.

This self-cleaning car tech could change everything

This self-cleaning car tech could change everything

Rich chocolate syrup on a pure white car would usually be the trigger for a trip to the detailing shop, but this time around there's something different: like the black oil from the X-Files, the syrup beads up and oozes off the edge of the hood, leaving no trace that it was ever there. Nissan's calling it "the World's Cleanest Car," but there's more to this special Leaf EV than a fetching matte paint-job.

Nissan invented something every car needs

What with airbags, electronic stability control, and crumple zones galore, you could be forgiven for thinking there was no safety feature left untouched on the modern car, but Nissan would prove you wrong. The humble rear-view mirror is next in line for a smart update, and as Nissan showed me with its prototype system, the way we look around our car is well overdue a high-tech update.
