For Nissan, being Japanese also means attention and care for the customer, principles that inspired the Nissan Promise, an assistance services program which has been in existence for 6 years and which includes, among other things, a free courtesy car, for any type of intervention and also outside the warranty period and free 24-hour roadside assistance and 365 days a year, even outside the warranty period.
Furthermore, Nissan's Japanese DNA can be found in the design of its crossovers, which “stand out for their modern, essential and elegant lines, which convey a sense of strength and dynamism”. All models have Nissan's signature V Motion styling on the front. A touch of Japan also for the interior design which, says Nissan, are elegant, functional and with high quality; of materials and finishes.
Another pillar of the Nissan strategy is the electrification. We remind you that in addition to pure electric, the Japanese manufacturer offers the new e-Power systemwhich recently made its debut in the European range and which features an electric motor, the only one that moves the wheels of the car, and a thermal engine that does nothing but feed the battery without ever contributing to traction.
As for the liability society, as part of the Ambition 2030 plan, Nissan intends to work for a more inclusive world. sustainable, safe and inclusive. For this, 16 billion euros will be invested and 23 new electrified models will be launched, 15 of which are 100% electric. The Japanese builder will work on the project. then on the development and production of solid-state technology for batteries.
Responsibility social also means safety for the driver, passengers and other road users. For this reason, Nissan adopts advanced safety technologies across its rangeand keep developing new ones. By 2030 it will be ground truth perception technology available on all nissan models which integrates information from LIDAR, radar and new generation cameras in real time, processes them to read the surrounding environment and, if necessary, automatically activates the car's steering and brakes to avoid a possible collision.
The safety of Nissan models is highly rated. It has also been recognized by Euro NCAP which awarded the 5-star rating to the new Nissan Juke, Qashqai, X-Trail and Ariya.
