If you are in the market for a new Nissan Leaf EV and were hoping to get in on the sub-$30,000 starting price the car debuted at this year, you might be too late. Nissan started to roll out a Leaf in September that has a different starting price and a larger battery. The new starting price for the updated leaf is $32,450.
It's been a little while since Mitsubishi has been in the news, but that's all changing today, with Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn teasing plans for a massive team up between the three companies at the Paris Auto Show. Renault-Nissan is currently looking to pay $2.2 billion to take home a 34% stake in Mitsubishi, and it sounds like Renault-Nissan isn't interested in wasting any time once the deal is confirmed by the appropriate regulatory authorities.
Nissan has announced that it is teaming up with Lucasfilm for a special edition Nissan Rogue that will be called the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition. The SUV will go on sale in the US and in Canada. While the actual vehicle won't be unveiled until the LA Auto Show in November, the badge is being shown off now.
Nissan's entry-level sedan - the Sentra - has been given a new weapon in its battle for budget conscious buyers. The 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo trim introduces the four-door's very first forced-induction engine, and elevates its output to a level that makes it a serious contender alongside other turbocharged options like the Chevrolet Cruze and the Honda Civic. Is the 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo a pocket rocket performance option or simply a better version of a car that was looking for a secret weapon to regain its place in the ranks of affordable daily drivers? Read on to discover 5 things you need to know about the 2017 Nissan Sentra SR Turbo.
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. It removes the need to stand, even the need to pay attention, for the most part. When someone leaves the queue, the chair automatically moves itself to the back of the line for the next person to sit down.
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. The new Nismo GT-R packs in 600hp via a twin-turbo 3.8L V6 engine.
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.
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?
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.
Japan's motorists are about to get their first taste of mass-market autonomous driving, with Nissan announcing it's bringing a self-driving minivan to public roads. The new Nissan Serena, a compact family car not sold in the US, will be the first of the automaker's models to offer ProPILOT, a combination of lane-following, traffic pacing, and more.
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. The car maker has revealed that it's become one of the first companies to sell an automobile on Twitter, with Raul Escolano purchasing a Nissan X-Trail from a dealership in Spain.
