Nissan Leaf Earns Good Housekeeping Research Institute “Tried & Tested” Recommendation

The world’s best-selling electric vehicle, the Nissan LEAF, was selected to be reviewed in the Good Housekeeping November buyer’s guide, along with seven other vehicles. The LEAF was specifically recognized for its “impressive” cruising range, value enhanced by available federal and state tax incentives and segment-exclusive Around View Monitor, which is great for parking and backing out.

2016 Nissan Maxima Spotted for First Time

We caught a glimpse of the next generation Nissan Maxima covered in camouflage with our spy shots. At the 2014 Detroit auto show, the car’s design concept was placed on display. The biggest influence from the concept is the V-shaped grille with smaller inlets on each side and jagged headlights. The Sport Sedan concept boasts a version of Nissan’s 3.5-liter V6 engine that churns out over 300 horsepower, coupled with a CVT that powers the front wheels.

World’s First Car-Powered Graffiti

Nissan has put the world’s best-selling electric vehicle (EV) to the streets of Waterloo, London to paint the town with graffiti art. The 100% electric Nissan LEAF is being used as a part of the efforts to bring awareness to the growing battle with poor air quality in the UK, while also cleaning up the streets. Nissan recruited Reverse Graffiti artist, Moose, to create a mass-scale mural that can be viewed in the subway on Station’s Approach, Waterloo. Unlike traditional graffiti, Moose creates his art by removing dirt from surfaces with a jet washer or wire brush. The same dirt that he uses to create this striking art is typically caused by matters from vehicle exhausts, which often exceed pollution guidelines and limits that have been set by the city. On this go around, the jet water used to create the reverse graffiti was powered by the Nissan LEAF. A portable device was used to convert two-days worth of electricity from the EV. Getting involved with this campaign places Nissan as a leading role in the push for clean air and smarter cities around the world!

Jekyll and Hyde: Two Different Sides of the New Nissan Pulsar Hatchback

Nissan showcased two very different sides of its 2015 Pulsar Hatchback during the 2014 Paris Motor Show – a standard and concept version. Nissan is looking to rival the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus with its standard version, however, the concept represents a “devilish” twist to the Pulsar. The concept features a suspension that’s dropped to the floor, sharper steering, huge air intakes in the front bumper, flared fenders, a rear diffuser with central exhausts, carbon fiber trimming, interior race seats and a three-spoke steering wheel. Currently, Nissan says the Pulsar NISMO Concept is “only a design study at this stage.”
