Consumers today are not just interested in buying cars but also in building them with their own imagination and creativity. Nissan believes that consumers today not just consider their vehicles as a machine to move around in short time but also view it as a reflection of their lifestyle and social status and therefore they want to design their own cars. At the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, Nissan came up with their own IDx virtual reality concept car idea that allow car drivers and car enthusiasts to design their own car and enter a dialogue with Nissan where they can build better cars in the future.

There’s a particularly funny Nissan commercial for the 2013 Nissan Sentra that is worth going over. It has a theme of 70s dating advice – with opening 70s music (with flanged guitars, horn music, prominent bass, and so on) and the words: “Date better with Sentra” being printed out on the screen. The scene begins – a man and his buddy are sitting at a bar, sunny tropical vacation music playing in the background. The man looks over and sees a good looking woman sitting at the bar at right angles to him. They begin to make eyes at each other. The man talks nervously to his friend for a moment and then gets up and begins to move in the woman’s direction.
It has been a big issue if what and how the Chinese became one of the major and most influencing people here on Earth. But, little did we know that even before the earliest era, The Chinese were known to be brave and strong for they were great antiquity thinkers. As of today, we really can’t deny the fact that they have influenced us with various things, like our way of clothing, some words, and the way of living. That is also the reason why Nissan Company would push through their plan in creating more cars that possess Chinese image. The impact of Chinese’s design is the advance proof of one country’s prominence in a larger and more comprehensive scale. Well, honestly speaking, Nissan Company is not the only manufacturer that is after China’s escalating talent when it comes to designing.
Nissan is a global leader in zero-emission vehicles and there is good news for all those U.S. LEAF customers who want to replace the original lithium-ion battery pack in the vehicle. The program will commence in the first half of 2014. The Nissan standard battery warranty includes 60,000 mile coverage, five-year warranty and 8 years/100,000 miles against defects. This is enough to give confidence to the electric vehicle owners. Although the Nissan’s director, Erik Gottfried feels there would never be any need for any battery replacement, the program only reinforces the commitment from Nissan to take care of its expanding community of LEAF drivers.
