Note is part of European range
London - Arabstoday
Designed for Europe and built in Europe: The 2013 Geneva Motor Show marks the start of another exciting chapter in Nissan's history. Driven by a passion for delivering future technology today, Nissan is showcasing a new generation of innovative European designed, engineered and built models that will redefine standards in their sectors.
The future of crossover design is another area where Nissan looks set to rewrite the rulebook. Having created the crossover sector with the Qashqai, Murano and Juke, Nissan is revealing a bold vision of what the future holds for the next generation of Nissan crossovers. Inspired by a theme of VIP space travel, the Resonance concept presents new ideas and advanced cabin technologies in a striking and bold package.
Leading the European charge are two models that perfectly embody Nissan's approach to bringing new technology to the market. The new Note has been completely redesigned to a new brief, and is set to shift into the B-segment with its combination of sharp design, low CO2 emissions and innovative first-in-sector technologies.
Among the many features Note introduces to the B-segment are Nissan's advanced and intuitive Around View Monitor and a comprehensive network of safety systems that combine to form the Nissan Safety Shield. Developed from Nissan's vision of driving a safer future, these systems redefine the path that technologies come to market and set Nissan out as leaders in the field of affordable and relevant technology.
The new Note isn't the only European-built model making its debut at Geneva. The new LEAF - now fully integrated into Nissan's European produced line-up - showcases a raft of technical and engineering enhancements. Building on the success of the ground-breaking original - of which over 50,000 have been produced to date - the new LEAF delivers improved real-world range autonomy, more choice for buyers and numerous detail improvements to make life with the world's best-selling electric car even easier.
The debut of the European Note and LEAF confirm Nissan's powerful and constantly-evolving presence in Europe. Despite challenging economic conditions, Nissan has proved that design, innovation and affordability are key components for success. In 2012, NMUK in Sunderland produced over 500,000 cars (a new record), while production facilities in Russia and Barcelona are also expanded to meet increased demand. Total European production has just passed a significant milestone - 10million vehicles have now been produced.
Nissan also celebrates its rich motorsport heritage at Geneva with the official European launch of the Nismo road car range. Spearheaded by the striking Juke Nismo and 370Z Nismo, the performance arm adds a new dimension to Nissan's product line-up, offering buyers accessible performance, premium design and advanced technology borne on the track.
