Nissan’s all-new X-Trail and Qashquai for the crossover family will take centre stage at the upcoming 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
The show will run from March 6 to 16 at the Geneva Palexpo convention centre and will showcase a number of other Nissan models.
The new X-Trail combines advanced 4x4 capabilities with a host of design and engineering features that have become hallmarks of Nissan crossovers. It also introduces a number of innovative new-to-sector technologies such as bi-LED headlamps, Nissan Safety Shield and a fully-integrated third-generation NissanConnect navigation and infotainment system.
The e-NV200 combines the best elements of the Nissan LEAF and Nissan NV200. The vehicle’s sales will start in May and will be available as a van or as a five-seat people carrier in Combi or more luxurious Evalia guises.
Making its European debut in production form, the Nissan GT-R Nismo is the fastest and most advanced Nissan performance production car. It is powered by a 600PS, 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine that has been extensively modified by Nismo engineers.
Also making its European debut is the bold new BladeGlider concept. It challenges conventional thinking on performance car design. Inspired by Nissan's innovative Zeod RC Zero Emission on Demand race car, the BladeGlider features radical narrow front-track design layout that creates a distinctive swept-wing shape when viewed from above.
Featuring perfect weight distribution thanks to the placement of the lithium ion batteries and in-board motors between the rear wheels, the BladeGlider optimises power delivery with significantly reduced stresses at the front of the vehicle.
The second generation model of Qashquai comes with a host of innovative and practical design features, which include the Nissan Safety Shield - a suite of safety systems that combine to deliver one of the most comprehensive protection packages in the industry - and the latest NissanConnect system with full smartphone integration.
