We’re jealous...again

If you were left without any means of getting around when the authorities implemented a public transportation ban to combat COVID-19 several months ago, chances are you've considered buying yourself or your family a ride. If so, Nissan has a
Don’t expect much
Frankly, seeing this is like being served a single french fry as an appetizer while waiting for a juicy 16oz ribeye steak dinner to pop out of the kitchen. Will it do? Not a chance. But whatever, we're damn hungry and
Better fuel efficiency is just one of the possible benefits
Improved fuel efficiency and better driving dynamics are just two of the more prominent benefits of using carbon fiber when building cars. So, why isn't the material utilized more often? Simply because it's more expensive and more time-consuming to

Great idea
Last year, during a visit to Japan for the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show, we dropped by Yokohama for a tour of Nissan's global headquarters. Featuring a huge collection of scale models, old-school collectibles, and vehicle displays, the quick stop at
