Nissan Note Is the First Car to Use Nissan's Safety Shield Technology

Nissan aims to protect drivers and pedestrians

Nissan has unveiled a rather interesting looking small car called the Note . All the cars new, Nissan is taking the time to talk more about the technology inside the car than the vehicle itself. The Note will be the first Nissan to use the company's new Safety Shield technology and Around You Monitor.

The system uses four cameras located on each side of the vehicle and an LCD display on the dash to show a view of what's going on all around the car. The idea is that having the screen will help drivers avoid pedestrians and other automobiles.

The Note also has a number of other technologies that make up Safety Shield including blind spot warning, lane departure warning, and moving object detection. All this technology helps drivers beware of other vehicles even if they can't see them physically. There's no indication of when the No will launch or if it will be coming to the United States.

Nissan commits to adding 'iconic' design after Cube killed off

Jul 25 2014 9:08am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Annual North American Auto Show Held In Detroit
Filed under: Hatchback, Nissan, Design/Style The Nissan Cube is on its way out here in the US and Canada. In a way, that's too bad, simply because the Cube's styling was nothing if not distinctive - much like the company's own Juke. However, the flame for uniquely styled models is indeed still burning over at Nissan. We might never see an exact replacement for the Cube in the brand's l ...

2014 BET Experience At L.A. LIVE - Music Matters Presented By Nissan

2014 Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo Test Drive

2014 BET Experience At L.A. LIVE - Music Matters Presented By Nissan
If you want to make new friends  – or get in touch with old ones – get a Nissan NV200 Compact Cargo. It seems like everybody has something they want to buy, move, donate or dump that’s too big for a car, too grungy for a leather-lined SUV and too personal for an open-air pickup. Actually, the NV200 is really made for small businesses, and it’s a great choice. What surprised us was, that along with the well-thought out functionality, the little Ni ...

Nissan: We lose money on each Leaf replacement battery

Jul 24 2014 5:31pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Audi At The Foundation Polo Challenge
Filed under: Nissan, Electric Nissan has been playing its cards pretty close to its chest when it comes to the production costs for Leaf battery packs. The company recently put a price on replacement batteries for customers at $5,500 plus the requirement to return the old battery. If the decommissioned battery is worth $1,000 to Nissan, as they have stated, that means the battery costs about $6,500 to make, right? Maybe even less if Nissan wants to turn a profit, as automakers are w ...
