The Nissan Versa Note was named one of 2015’s 10 Tech-Savviest Cars Under $20,000 by Kelley Blue Book for the second year in a row. Tech features like Nissan’s innovative Around View Monitor, hands-free texting and Bluetooth streaming with Pandora internet radio impressed the judges.
All the vehicles tested had to start below $20,000 according to the Kelley Blue Book Fair Purchase Price (FPP), which shows what shoppers are paying for a specific new car.
Even though the Versa Note shares its platform and fuel-efficient engine and transmission with the Versa sedan, the Note has a unique design and feel inside and out. The 5-door layout makes it especially practical, with loads of cargo space and plenty of room for every … more
Searching for an all-electric Nissan Leaf in Hartford, CT? Although electric cars do not produce any CO2 emissions when they are being driven, there is still typically a significant amount of CO2 emitted during the production of the vehicle. Nissan has been hard at work trying to change that by developing environmentally neutral vehicles that use more recycled materials.
It is estimated the Nissan LEAF has reduced CO2 emissions by around 151,000 tons since its 2010 launch, but Nissan aims to do better. The LEAF chief vehicle engineer Hidetoshi Kadota said that their goal is “to preserve the planet and create a car that is sustainable and eco-friendly.”
About 25 percent of the materials used to produce a Nissan … more
Today Nissan announced they will be extending the warranties on their commercial vehicles, as their vans are proving to be extremely durable in real world use. The basic limited warranty has been extended from 3 years/36,000 miles to 5 years/100,000 miles, and the powertrain warranty has been extended from 5 year/60,000 miles to 5 years/100,000 miles.
Because of harsh environments, these vehicles see heavy use and many miles of wear and tear. It is virtually unheard of to have a 100,000 mile warranty. Fred Diaz of Nissan said that Nissan is in the commercial business for the long haul, and they want to prove to customers that they have confidence in their vehicles.

Searching for a new Nissan Murano in the Hartford or West Haven, CT area? When it came to creating the 2015 Nissan Murano was a bit of a challenge for Nissan designers in Yokohama, Japan. The team wanted to make a vehicle that had the original model’s “wow” factor, in addition to being as aerodynamic as possible.
In order to achieve this ambitious goal, the team used a variety of tools to design the Murano, combining typical computer rendering and sketching with three-dimensional clay models. Some of the most iconic automotive designs in history were designed using clay models, so it made sense to return to using them for this project.
The 2015 Murano has many distinctive Nissan styling elements, such as the … more

Nissan has been working on battery pack improvements for the current LEAF as well, and an all-electric INFINITI is in the near future once the new technology has been further developed.
INFINITI’s EV will be packaged as a more traditional sedan, which should allow for … more
