Nissan is a full-line automaker headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. Founded in 1934, the automaker marketed vehicles under its original name, Datsun, at various times. Under financial pressure, Nissan entered into an alliance with French automaker Renault in 1999 that is run by CEO Carlos Ghosn. Nissan was also the first import brand to offer a full-size truck, the Titan, in the US.

All-electric powertrains and low-priced, high-margin vehicle lines don't exactly go hand in hand, but Renault-Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn says not to count out that possibility when it comes to Renault's Dacia division in Romania. With expanding EV sales bringing component costs down and pushing public entities to install more recharging stations, Ghosn ...
Even as fuel prices creep back up, trucks are still a hot item among new-vehicle shoppers. To see how popular pickup trucks still are, you don't have to look any further than how much effort automakers put into the continual one-upmanship of their trucks. Backing this fact up, USA Today is reporting that the segment could top two million sales this year ...
The Nissan Xterra might not be long for this world, according to a report from Edmunds. The rugged SUV, which has always been a bit more of a hardcore, purpose-built vehicle than the rest of the Nissan SUV range. But it has also suffered from slowing sales, low fuel economy relative to the competition and general neglect, as Nissan has focused on other ...
One may argue that it takes some stones for a car company to more or less belittle 98 percent of the vehicles it makes, but Nissan is doing just that with its latest pitch for the Leaf all-electric vehicle. As discovered by Green Car Reports, Nissan is about to unveil a television advertising campaign that features company executive Brian Maragno ...
Nissan took the wraps off its Leaf Nismo RC Concept at the New York Auto Show more than two years ago. As inferred, the vehicle shares many of its pure-EV components with the production Leaf currently sitting in your dealer's showroom. But don't assume the concept is a placid, family friendly, four-place, front-wheel-drive plug-in for grabbing groceries - ...
The McLaren F1 is most famous for holding the production-car top-speed record for over a decade, but it also made a name for itself by being one of the only production cars with a central driving position, a feature that's extremely rare. But in the world of custom cars, anything can happen. We're not sure if Dubai-based shop King of Customs was inspired ...
As expected, Ecotality is bowing out. The electric vehicle charging station maker just filed for bankruptcy protection and plans to auction off its assets next month. Ecotality and five affiliates filed for Chapter 11 protection Monday at the US bankruptcy court in Phoenix, AZ. The charging station company said eight parties would like to bid on its ...
Mercedes-Benz Titan. Mercedes-Benz Frontier. Mercedes-Benz pickup truck. None of these things roll off the tongue particularly well. We'd like to think that's the reason Daimler opted to kill the idea of rebadged Titan and Frontier pickups from corporate ally Nissan. In reality, the execution before the Frankfurt Motor Show was due to more complicated ...
The Datsun name may have long since been replaced by Nissan, but the old brand is making a comeback – in certain markets, at least. Nissan relaunched the Datsun brand in July as its new budget brand for developing markets with the debut of the Go hatchback, and has now followed up with the addition of the larger Go+. Set to be built in Indonesia at ...
With all-wheel drive, launch control and a dual-clutch transmission, the Nissan GT-R may be easier to manage than most supercars. But that doesn't mean that dragging one on a wet strip is a good idea. Filmed at the Unlimited 500+ drag race in Moscow, Russia, this video depicts a pair of GT-Rs going head to head. But things didn't go quite as planned when ...
Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery, but in racing, where something as simple as a car's shape can lead to a competitive advantage, imitation can be a big no-no. That reality is being played out right now, with the DeltaWing prototype and the Nissan ZEOD RC. The two cars, as you can see from the images above, bear a striking resemblance to ...
Is the US plug-in vehicle market going to be derailed by a vicious cycle of lower sales and their impact on residual vehicle values? That's one question that may be worth asking after ALG Inc. reduced residual values – the valuation of vehicles that are returned after leases end – for plug-ins and hybrids. The most notable model that ALG took ...
Thanks to the Nissan Restoration Club, a legendary rally car is coming back to life. At the recent Nissan 360 media event, the Japanese automaker announced that its restoration club is bringing the Safari Rally Z back to original running condition. A variant of the Fairlady Z (or Datsun 240Z in the US), the Safari Rally Z has a fastback coupe body and a ...
Our friends at Top Gear (the magazine, not the TV show) are currently celebrating the publication's twentieth birthday. In honor of that milestone, the BBC-owned book is naming what it thinks are the 50 greatest cars from the past 20 years. Now, this is TG's list, which means it's a bit more focused on European brands and models. For example, the ...
Consider this week a cosmic passing of the torch. As legendary Southern California auto dealer Cal Worthington (sans his dog Spot) left this world for that great dealership in the sky, Nissan was making preparations for its all-electric Leaf to make its debut in the realm where good 'ol Cal reigned supreme: the used car lot. Yes, with more than 33,000 ...
The Nissan e-NV200, currently in the final phases of testing with FedEx fleets in various countries, will be getting more demanding cargo next year in Barcelona when it goes into service as a taxi. Unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show by Carlos Ghosn and with the mayor of Barcelona, Xavier Trias, in attendance, the e-NV200 is the van slightly reworked ...
A few months ago, Nissan gave the Micra (which is not for US consumption) a substantial styling update that included new front and rear fascias, and stuffed more technology into the interior, such as USB ports and auxiliary inputs for audio and a new media touchscreen. Though it's still based on the same fourth-generation architecture, Nissan now calls it ...
Nissan is ready to duplicate the success of its all-electric Leaf with its zero-emissions e-NV200 electric compact van, and the company is on schedule to start selling it to the public next year. The Japanese automaker is now in the "final development phase" for the e-NV200 after trying it out with various commercial companies since 2011. Nissan is also ...
Up until now, the Rogue and X-Trail were two different compact crossovers that competed in the same segment for Nissan, except one was sold only in the US and the other Europe. So why, Nissan asked, aren't they exactly the same? Thus, with today's reveal of the redesigned 2014 Nissan Rogue, our team on the ground at the Frankfurt Motor Show also met its ...
Nissan has been on a roll lately, redesigning its core model line with all-new versions of the Altima, Pathfinder, Sentra and Versa Note released this year. But the Japanese automaker wouldn't leave out the Rogue, its second-best-selling model in the US. Like the Range Rover Sport, Mitsubishi Outlander and Ford Explorer, the second-generation Nissan ...
