Nissan launch ‘Paw Pack’ for the X-Trail off-roader 0

Never let it be said that Nissan doesn’t spare a thought for man’s best friend. The Japanese company has just launched what it is calling its “Paw Pack”, an accessory for its X-Trail model that allows Fido to travel home in safety and comfort after walkies in the countryside – with as little mess as(…)

City of Florence gets fleet of electric Nissan taxis 0

Nissan’s flagship electric vehicle, the Leaf, is becoming increasingly popular with cab companies the world over. Florence is the latest city to embrace the Japanese carmaker’s compact, green little runaround and has ordered a fleet of 67 to operate as taxis around the historic Italian city. The municipality recently opened 70 new taxi licences exclusively(…)

A look back at the Nissan Datsun Sunny 120Y (1973 – 1978) 0

Today’s retrospective takes us back to the ‘70s and a properly golden period in the Datsun/Nissan timeline. The company’s sales boomed in the UK in particular, and this success was most likely attributable to the easy availability to its cars, thanks to the Japanese production lines. At a time when the majority of Britain’s manufacturing(…)

A look back at the Nissan Figaro (1991) 0

Today’s retrospective takes a look back at the Nissan Figaro. As classic cars go, the Figaro nailed ‘retro’ before the style was even in fashion. It was certainly unique, an eccentric labour of love that harked back to the classic sports convertibles that motored the roads of Europe in years gone by. Built in 1991(…)

Nissan prepare ‘one pedal’ electric car 0

With the news that Britain is set to ban all diesel and petrol cars from 2040, Nissan is currently preparing a new edition of its popular electric Leaf model, which utilises just one pedal for both accelerating and decelerating.

Harrods go electric with Nissan 0

A look back at the Nissan S-Cargo (1989 – 1992) 0

Okay, it wasn’t the most physically attractive of vehicles, but what it did do; it did well and with the minimum amount of fuss. Let’s face it; it was never going to be taken completely seriously. The Nissan S-Cargo was an ingeniously styled (and titled) small van. Initially based on the K10 Micra and built(…)

A look back at the Nissan Bluebird (1986 – 1990) 0

The Nissan Bluebird was a watershed for the British car making industry. Despite the car itself not being anything special, what it stood for was a different matter. When it first hit markets in 1986, it was taking the place of a car with the same name, which had only been on sale in Britain(…)

A brief history of Nissan 0

These days, Nissans are as much a part of our roads as any brand – perhaps more so due to the high quality to affordability ratio – a truly desirable and attainable for many a budget. But how much do we actually know about the origins of the Japanese car maker? Here’s a brief history…(…)

The Nissan Qashqai gets an upgrade 0

When it first graced our streets a decade ago, the Nissan Qashqai completely reinvigorated the family sports utility market. Within the industry the Qashqai has been nicknamed the ‘cash cow’ due to the incredible revenues it has brought in for the Japanese company. Saying that, it’s been a good vehicle for Britain too, since its(…)
