Nissan's Re-imagined New Global Sedan World Previewed at BeijingNissan Motor Co., Ltd. today revealed an all-new global sedan along wîth three zero-emission concepts at the 2012 Beijing International Automobile Exhibition, joining the selection of production models.
Highlights of the Nissan show:
•All-new global sedan featuring elegant modern design and one-class-above cabin comfort smartly balanced wîth Nissan's advanced technology. The new model will premiere in China as the next-generation Nissan Sylphy.
•Three zero-emission concept vehicles: PIVO 3, a smart urban EV of the near future; ESFLOW, a pure EV sports car; and e-NV200, a versatile EV small van.
•Advanced technology exhibit showcasing Nissan's leadership in zero-emission mobility and safety.
Nissan developed a one-class-above solution that exceeds customers' expectations - retaining the popular features of the current model while upgrading design, perceived quality, roominess and performance. In fact, Nissan has virtually re-imagined the category, delivering high quality styling outside and spacious, quiet comfort inside wîth the latest 'smart' amenities, plus remarkable fuel efficiency.
Design wîth Excitement and Confidence
Just lòòking at the all-new global sedan inspires excitement and confidence. The lowered stance and well-proportioned aerodynamic body create a strong presence, while the elegantly upswept character line expresses dynamic yet refined performance. The front grille and LED-bordered headlamps contribute to the premium image and help create a modern look. LED taillights, a sharply angled trunk lid and eye-catching chrome trim add to the tastefully-styled one-class-above appearance.
Roomy, High Quality Interior
The modern design language of the exterior is carried over to the spacious interior wîth high quality materials and cabin details crafted to please the senses. Within the roomy cabin, passengers enjoy generous shoulder room and legroom one would expect in more expensive vehicles. The trunk's capacity is among the best in its class. Thorough noise isolation, vibration absorption, and an advanced suspension wîth optimized high-stiffness body assure a peacefully smooth ride. Amenities for comfort and convenience include dual-zone air conditioning, Intelligent Key and keyless pushbutton ignition.
Impressive Fuel Economy
With its new 1.8 liter engine and next-generation XTRONIC CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), the all-new global sedan delivers impressive fuel efficiency. A long piston stroke and Twin Continuously variable valve timing control (C-VTC) optimize combustion, while hydrogen-free Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating on valve lifters halves friction of previous coatings and beehive valve springs reduce friction and inertial loss. The next-generation XTRONIC CVT is lighter and more compact than previous designs, yet achieves greater efficiency and a wider gear ratio range, thanks to an auxiliary transmission wîth sub planetary gears and smaller pulleys. This environmentally-friendly performance reflects Nissan's global PÚRE DRIVE commitment to reducing CO2 emissions through developing fuel efficient internal combustion engine (ICE) technologies and introducing them into the market.
This new model, to be produced at the Dongfeng Nissan Huadu Plant facilities in Guangzhou, will be released in mid 2012. Following its introduction in China, the car will be launched in most major markets worldwide during the course of 2012 and approximately 120 countries by 2014.Source - Nissan
