Nissan's "self-cleaning LEAF" hits the streets, then the web

Nissan's "self-cleaning LEAF" hits the streets, then the web

The "world's cleanest car" is daring its fans to get it dirty. Nissan has launched a social media campaign that will include a series of online videos to showcase a zero-emissions Nissan LEAF with self-cleaning nano-paint technology. Created to demonstrate its potential use in future production vehicles, this LEAF is armed with Ultra-Ever Dry® paint to help repel almost any liquid that may come its way. Nissan first introduced the one-of-a-kind LEAF this past April.

Staying safe with Nissan Note

Staying safe with Nissan Note

You’re driving along the motorway, heading for a much needed holiday in the sun. It’s been a long day and you’re tired after working so hard for the past few months.

You close your eyes momentarily… or at least that’s what you think. In fact, you’ve been ‘asleep’ for a few seconds and when you wake with a jerk you realize the car is no longer safely in its lane but drifting across the motorway towards the central barrier. An accident is avoided – but only just.

Liquid battery electrodes promise increased range and reduced costs

Researchers in the U.S.A are developing liquid battery electrodes that could significantly increase the range of EVs, while also reducing charging times and costs. In theory, a car with such a battery could travel up to 800 km (500 miles) on a full charge.

The U.S. government-backed Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy (ARPA-E) is funding a number of projects to explore the potential of liquid electrodes. Researchers are particularly interested in developing high-performance "rechargeable fuel" batteries.

Innovation for everyone

Innovation for everyone

High-growth countries of Brazil, Russia, China and India represent more than 30% of the combined sales of the Renault-Nissan Alliance – up from 1% when Renault and Nissan partnered in 1999.

The key to success in these challenging markets? Modern, robust cars that are truly affordable to first-time buyers – manufactured in clever, “cost-breakthrough” ways that significantly reduce the use of scarce natural resources.
