Nissan ProPILOT Chair uses autonomous tech for sitting in line

Everyone has to stand in line at some point, but not everyone enjoys it. For those times you can’t stand, well, standing, Nissan has developed a new autonomous queuing chair that automatically moves the next person in line forward when appropriate.

When someone leaves the queue, the chair automatically moves itself to the back of the line for the next person to sit down.

2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo MSRP starts at $174,990

Nissan has announced the official starting price of the 2017 GT-R Nismo and it's very far from an affordable car. In fact, if you take the $174,990 price tag for the GT-R Nismo and then add another $1,000 to it, you could own a Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

Nissan unveils new Sentra SR Turbo for 2017

It's been more than a few years since the Sentra SE-R held the position of an affordable, sporty compact in Nissan's lineup, but we might just be seeing a return to those days with announcement of the new 2017 Sentra SR Turbo. The four-door sedan joins the Juke in offering a turbocharged inline-four, but substantially one-ups the stock 124-hp Sentra SR with a 1.6-liter engine that puts out 188-hp and 177 lb-ft of torque.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder first-drive

2017 Nissan Pathfinder first-drive

The Nissan Pathfinder used to be an adventurous, off-road sport-utility vehicle, then one day Nissan decided to switch gears. For better or worse, depending on who you talk to, it’s no longer the same vehicle as it was before 2013; had Nissan renamed it, in fact, I don’t think it would have had any arguments. What was once a rugged icon in the automotive industry has evolved into an everyday people hauler. That means it’s definitely roomier and more comfortable for the kids in the back, but what is it like for the person actually behind the wheel?

Zero emission, 100% crazy: Nissan builds its astonishing BladeGlider

Nissan's bonkers BladeGlider concept was only ever intended to hint at how electrification and driving enthusiasm could work together, so imagine our surprise to find a fully functional version has been made. Shown off at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2013, the oddly proportioned three-seater looks more like a wingless jet-fighter than a car, but according to Nissan it could well shape the automaker's future EVs.

Nissan dealership used Twitter to sell a car

Is Twitter evolving into the next Craigslist? Probably not, but one European user relied on the social network to buy a car — and not from a private owner, but an actual Nissan dealership.

2016 Nissan Leaf vs 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf: Range-Anxiety

Electric cars may be the future, but so is range anxiety. That's the lingering conclusion after testing two of the most popular, competitively-priced EVs on the market, the 2016 Volkswagen e-Golf SE, and the 2016 Nissan Leaf SL. Unlike anything from Tesla's forecourt, you'll get change from $40k even buying brand new, and various subsidies tickle the sticker prices even lower. Question is, are either of these all-electric chariots really ready to join the rat-race?
