Nissan Juke Nismo RS sets 2 wheel mile-long driving record

Nissan Juke Nismo RS sets 2 wheel mile-long driving record

We usually hear and write about cars that set the record straight when it came to speed, performance, eco-friendliness, and other normal metrics, but there are just some stunts that defy odds and rationality. Take for example driving on only two wheels on the same side, something that no car was designed to do. And yet that is exactly what the Nissan Juke Nismo RS did at the Goodwood Festival Speed this weekend, setting a new world record for the fastest mile-long drive on two wheels. Without toppling over, of course.

Nissan Juke-R 2.0 pumps the power to 600hp

Nissan Juke-R 2.0 pumps the power to 600hp

Back in 2011, Nissan showed off the very first version of the Juke-R and the little crossover looked really cool. That original car packed the powertrain from a GT-R under its crossover body marking a seriously high performance car that Nissan would actually build you if you had enough cash. Nissan has now announced the Juke-R 2.0 and like the original, this car has the drive train from a Nissan GT-R underneath.

Nissan and partners to give second life to EV batteries

Nissan has been making its all-electric Leaf car for a long time and one of the big concerns when it comes to aging EVs is what to do with the battery packs after the vehicle is no longer fit for the road. Nissan and 4R Energy have partnered with Green Charge Networks to give old battery packs from EVs a second life in commercial energy storage. Nissan has conducted several research projects to find ways to use the battery packs outside of the vehicle.

2016 Nissan Maxima resets the meaning of a 4-Door Sports Car

2016 Nissan Maxima resets the meaning of a 4-Door Sports Car

Granted, Nissan was the one who coined the "4-Door Sports Car" moniker to christen its own brand of sports sedan, so it does probably have the right to redefine what that means. Now in its 8th running, the 2016 Nissan Maxima is poised to become the standard of a sports car wrapped around a sedan body, and for this generation, it is including a few twists and tweaks to the design, from without, within, and deep inside the guts. With a nod to a aviation, insights from Nissan's own GT-R, as well as the latest in infotainment and driver assistance technologies, the 2016 Maxima becomes a meeting point of the past as well as the future.

Nissan investigated by NHTSA over possible failed recalls

Nissan is being investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over the possible failure of two past recalls to properly fix the issues they were meant to cover, it has been announced. The investigation covers nearly a million cars, and concerns the front airbag seat sensors which have been covered by two recalls -- one in 2013 and one in 2014 -- which may still be faulty. This potentially concerns several car models, including the Altima, which has been subjected to multiple recalls in the recent past.

The most expensive car to insure… is a Nissan?

The most expensive car to insure… is a Nissan?

When affordable motoring is the topic, Nissan declaring war on your wallet isn't the first thing that would usually come to mind, but one of the company's cars has the (perhaps unpleasant) crown in insurance expense. The Nissan GT-R Nismo is, with a price tag that starts at almost $150k, hardly in the same league as your average Sentra or Leaf, and the even-more-ridiculously-powerful version of an already capable sports car will take a sizable bite out of your budget when it comes to insurance, too, according to some new research of what's on forecourts in 2015.

Nissan expands hood latch recall with 640k more cars

Nissan expands hood latch recall with 640k more cars

Nissan has expanded a previous recall to include about 640,000 more vehicles, the reason being due to a potentially faulty hood latch that could allow the hood to fly upwards onto the windshield when the operator is driving. This includes some of the auto maker's newest Altima sedans, and brings the recall total -- including the previous recall -- to nearly 1.1 million cars across the globe. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently released documents related to the recall.
