Nissan was also the first import brand to offer a full-size truck, the Titan, in the US.

News comes across our desks all the time of one manufacturer marking some milestone or another. But Nissan has just announced a double-whammy: Not only has Nissan's assembly plant in Smyrna, TN, just built its ten-millionth vehicle, but that ten-millionth vehicle just so happened to be the first Nissan Rogue to be built in the United States. The ...
Cab drivers in New York City may not be mandated to purchase the Nissan NV200 "Taxi of Tomorrow" per the orders of a Supreme Court Judge, but that isn't stopping Nissan from beginning sales of the bright yellow people movers. Speaking to Automotive News, Howard Koeppel, a Queens-based dealer said, "We just got them about three days ago, and we've sold ...
With the LA Auto Show a little more than a month away, we're getting a good idea of which cars we'll be seeing there. Show organizers have issued a press release that names numerous debuts we've heard about already, and one that caught our eye as brand new: the Nissan Juke Nismo RS. We first heard about the Juke Nismo RS last year, and reported news of ...
When it was new in 1969, the Datsun 240Z was a European-style Japanese sportscar. It had a straight six like the E9 BMW 2800CS and styling that somewhat mimicked the Jaguar E-Type, with its sugar-scoop headlamps, long hood and cab-backwards design. At the time, it was a cheaper alternative to those European cars and others like the Porsche 911. Over the ...
Justice Schlomo Hagler may have just put a big dent in Nissan's plans to rule New York City's taxi fleets and outgoing Mayor Mike Bloomberg's vision of a unified fleet of yellow cabs. As an October 28 deadline approached that would see all current, non-hybrid taxis replaced over by the Nissan NV200 over a three-to-five-year span, the legal battle that's ...
Since its introduction in 2008, the Nissan GT-R has seen a steady increase of power and price almost every year, but the big news for the next-gen supercar might be an increase in production.

Getting its semi-autonomous Leaf legalized in Japan was just the first step. Now, Nissan is giving demonstrations of what its fully autonomous car is capable of at this year's Combined Exhibition of Advanced Technologies (CEATEC) show – Japan's equivalent to America's Consumer Electronics Show.

It wasn't exactly NASCAR driver Jeff Gordon scaring the bejesus out of an unsuspecting car salesman in a Pepsi-sponsored prank, but the racetrack laps that our friends over at Translogic featured of the Nissan Leaf-based Nismo racer certainly look plenty fun, especially for the enthusiastic driver. Besides the track time, Translogic interviewed Shoichi ...
It would appear that we're a little behind the times on this one, but a UK-based tuner of the Nissan GT-R is creating its own take on the lustworthy Juke-R starting with the Nissan Qashqai crossover. Severnvalley Motorsport claims to be the leading authority for tuning of the current GT-R in Europe. The outfit is now turning its attention to stuffing the ...
This Nissan is the most in-demand long-term vehicle we've ever had. They may not readily fall into the sweet spot of driving enthusiasts, but our year-long test of this Nissan is proving to be an object lesson in why crossovers are so popular – especially large ones like our three-row Pathfinder. In fact, it's been so busy that it's hardly been ...
For its latest ad, Nissan brought together a racecar driver in a 370Z Nismo, a BASE jumper in a wingsuit and a Juke crossover with three computer screens to the Susten Pass in the Swiss Alps. As odd as the combination sounds, the ingredients come together quite nicely for an action-packed display of man versus machine in a race to the end of the ...

Before we start, let's state that the annual Labor Day sales bump was included with September sales in 2012 and with August in 2013. The change means that, overall, a drop in 2013 sales doesn't really represent a decline in sales, since there were fewer official sales days and no Labor Day sales in September 2013. You can get details on the industry's ...
Back in June, Nissan announced a new partnership with Williams that would see the Formula One team's applied sciences division help develop a new line of Nismo performance models.

Despite the fact that an all-new generation of its Rogue crossover goes on sale in November, Nissan will continue to sell the current model alongside its replacement. The existing C-platform-based Rogue, which will be renamed Rogue Select, will start at less than $20,000 when it goes on sale in January 2014. At present, a base 2013 Rogue S prices out ...
