Nissan’s 2020 fuel-cell plans put bio-ethanol in the tank

Nissan is getting into the fuel-cell car business, but unlike rivals like Toyota and Honda, it's not looking to hydrogen to power its environmentally-friendly vehicle. Instead, Nissan is looking to harness bio-ethanol electric power, using a range of different fuels - including some sourced from sugarcane or corn - to power an electric car.

2016 Nissan Titan XD Review: Not-quite HD pickup makes cannonball splash

2016 Nissan Titan XD Review: Not-quite HD pickup makes cannonball splash

The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a puzzling truck. Let me explain. I've been driving trucks since I was a teenager, learning the joys of parking a battleship in an urban environment after my transition from country mouse to city mouse for college. In the intervening years I've seen the full-size pickup market blossom into the behemoth-laden bastion of Big Three profits that it's become today, with ultra-luxury trucks now as common as BMW and Lexus sedans at country clubs across the nation.

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Takes On The Top 3 Compact Sedans In America

The 2017 Hyundai Elantra Takes On The Top 3 Compact Sedans In America

Small cars are no longer the penalty boxes of old, especially in the compact segment where models like the all-new Hyundai Elantra combine a strong selection of luxury, safety, and infotainment features with sleek design and an affordable price tag. Comfort and class have gone way up at the entry-level, and the end result has been a dogfight between the Japanese automakers that have traditionally dominated the compact space and upstarts from Korean and Detroit that have studied their enemy well.

The 2017 Nissan GT-R NISMO is a track monster

First came the 2017 Nissan GT-R, stepping up both power and luxury, and now comes the version we've all been waiting for, the 2017 GT-R NISMO. Making its debut today - and, fittingly, at the famed Nürburgring - the tuned-up coupe still musters the 600 horsepower of its sibling, courtesy of a 3.8-liter turbocharged V6, but adds greater stiffness, more downforce, and other tweaks that, Nissan claims, add up to "better overall balance" than its predecessor.

Nissan recalls over 3.5M cars over faulty airbag sensors

Nissan recalls over 3.5M cars over faulty airbag sensors

Nissan announced a new recall yesterday affecting 3.53 million of its cars, most of which are in the US, over concerns the passenger-side airbag may not deploy. The carmaker said the problem lies within the Occupant Classification System, or the sensor that detects if someone is sitting in the front passenger seat. The airbag is designed not to deploy if that seat is empty, however, if the sensor fails to detect a passenger, they wouldn't be protected by an airbag in the event of a crash.

Nissan Leaf reads drivers’ minds and projects thoughts onto the road

Nissan Leaf reads drivers’ minds and projects thoughts onto the road

Nissan has showcased a new…experiment? Fun project? A new bizarre commemoration of some sort for the Leaf EV’s 5th anniversary, and it involves projecting the thoughts of drivers onto the road around the car. The setup involves a headband that measures a driver's brainwaves and through some technological voodoo translates them into words projected in jagged, excited bubbles for others to see.

Nissan Navara truck hides an 800hp GT-R heart

Nissan Navara truck hides an 800hp GT-R heart

We love it when carmakers get wacky and build cars or trucks that have insane amount of power for no good reason other than they can. Such was the case last summer when Nissan rolled out the Juke-R 2.0 that packed away an engine right out of a GT-R. You could buy the Juke-R if you had the money and inclination to do so. A company called Severn Valley Motorsports in Shropshire has taken Nissan's lead and crammed the GT-R engine inside a truck.

Nissan's GT-R is undeniably iconic, but it's also getting long in the tooth, and so Godzilla has gone in for a revamp. It's no minor surgery, either, with the 2017 Nissan GT-R getting a more aggressive look outside, more power from the engine, and more luxury inside, as the company readies itself for big competition from the Lexus LC 500, Acura NSX, and others.
