Nissan adds ingenious Easy Fill Tire Alert to 2013 Altima

Nissan adds ingenious Easy Fill Tire Alert to 2013 Altima

The United States has required tire pressure monitoring systems to be installed on vehicles for years. These are the systems that make a dash light glow if you have a tire with low-pressure. The problem with the pressure monitoring systems in many vehicles is that they don't say which tire is low, so if you don't have a tire gauge you have to continually go back and look at the dash light to see if the light goes off.

California demands electric cars from more manufacturers

California has gained a reputation as one of the scripted governmental bodies in the world when it comes to the environment, and like it or not, there's no denying that its legislation drives green technology. At the moment the top six automakers in the state - Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota, Honda and Nissan - are required to sell a certain number of all-electric or fuel-cell cars every year. California has updated its mandate so that by 2018, any automaker that sells 20,000 vehicles or more in the state will also be held accountable.

Nissan's DeltaWing project is on track to take on the famous 24-hour Le Mans race in June.

Thankfully, some companies are starting to come out with hybrids and EVs that are green and good-looking. One of the latest vehicles that falls into the green and attractive range is the Infiniti LE concept that surfaced this week at the New York Auto Show.

Nissan DeltaWing goes road racing

The car you see here isn't Batman's latest ride, it's called the Nissan DeltaWing, and it looks very strange. The car is described as part road racer and part salt flat racer it is designed to be more aerodynamic than other cars on the grid and to use half the fuel the other vehicles use. Interestingly, the car isn't a pure flight of fantasy research project either. It will be coming to the 24 hours of LeMans. Fuel economy is a huge deal in endurance racing and if the car delivers on its promise it could be very competitive indeed.
