The all-new Nissan Altima earns its place among the All-Stars

AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. – The 2019 Nissan Altima has been named one of Automobile Magazine’s 2019 All-Stars at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance.

Completely redesigned and engineered from the ground up for the 2019 model year, the Nissan Altima sports a sleek design and outstanding powertrain options, all backed by smart driver-focused technology. Automobile Magazine evaluated the 2019 Altima SR, equipped with a 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine, noting it was a serious underdog entering the competition. Its composed handling, strong powertrain and attractive design ultimately won over the editors.

“We’re incredibly proud to receive this award,” said Anne Corrao, director, family sedans and sports cars, Nissan North America. “Altima is one of the most important products in our portfolio and to be honored among the best in the business means the world to us.”

Automobile Magazine prides itself in simply choosing the best new cars on the road each year. There are no price caps and no points to tally, meaning the magazine simply selects the best of the best new cars on the road no matter the class in which they compete. And while each year, every new vehicle model makes the initial list, it must achieve style, class, importance and desirability to achieve “All-Stars” status.

“The Nissan Altima has undergone a transformation that elevated it to All-Star status,” said Automobile editor-in-chief, Mike Floyd. “It drives worlds better than before, is available with an innovative engine and a top-flight suite of safety features, and its clean interior layout pairs with a great-looking new exterior.”

Equipped with the revolutionary 2.0-liter VC-Turbo engine, editors were genuinely surprised by its multi-faceted capabilities. Capable of producing the torque typically reserved for a larger engine along with the fuel economy of a four-cylinder. Furthermore, the Altima’s confidence-inspiring suspension characteristics are described as performing well above that of class rivals. 

The Altima is available with a complete suite of both standard and optional Nissan Intelligent Mobility features like Safety Shield 360, ProPILOT Assist, Intelligent Around View Monitor and Intelligent All-Wheel-Drive.

The 2019 Nissan Altima is on sale at dealerships across the country. For more information on the 2019 Nissan Altima and the complete Nissan vehicle lineup, please visit NissanNews.com.

Nissan LEAF first electric car to pass 400,000 sales

YOKOHAMA, Japan – The Nissan LEAF today became the first electric car in history to surpass 400,000 sales, solidifying the model’s leading role in the global shift toward more sustainable mobility.

Introduced in 2010 as the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle, the Nissan LEAF has led the way in making the excitement and convenience of electric driving accessible to non-luxury buyers. Less than a decade ago, electric cars were seen as a niche product, and LEAF customers were mostly “early adopters.”

Today, a growing number of consumers say their next car may be electric. Customers are choosing the LEAF for its powerful, agile performance and advanced technologies, such as the ProPILOT Assist semiautonomous driving system1, in addition to the benefits of sustainable mobility.

“This milestone is a powerful statement that 400,000 customers, and counting, value the Nissan LEAF for the excitement, confidence and connection it delivers,” said Executive Vice President Daniele Schillaci, Nissan’s global head of marketing, sales and electric vehicles. “The LEAF remains the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, our strategy for moving more people to a better world.”

In launching the first-generation LEAF, Nissan pledged to become a global leader in producing and promoting vehicles with zero tailpipe emissions. The company committed itself to working with governments and utility companies to support the adoption of electric vehicles, make charging them easier and more convenient, and develop second-life uses for electric car batteries.

Since then, Nissan has formed partnerships around the world under its Nissan Energy initiative. These partnerships will leverage the ability of electric car batteries to store energy and share it with homes, businesses and power grids – making electric vehicles even more useful, while promoting efficient energy use.

Meanwhile, LEAF owners have driven their cars more than 10 billion kilometers in total. The number of LEAF vehicles sold since 2010 is enough to save 3.8 million barrels of oil a year.2

Last year, the LEAF was not only the best-selling electric vehicle in Europe, but also the top-selling car of any kind in Norway.

The Nissan LEAF is available in more than 50 markets globally. It will go on sale in six new markets in Latin America in the first half of this year and seven in Asia and Oceania by the end of the year.

The new LEAF

Recently, a model with a new powertrain joined the lineup: the Nissan LEAF PLUS, which offers increased power and up to 226 miles of range. Sales of the LEAF PLUS began in late January in Japan. U.S. sales will begin this spring, and Europe will follow shortly thereafter.

The Nissan LEAF embodies the three pillars of Nissan Intelligent Mobility – Intelligent Power, Intelligent Drive and Intelligent Integration. The car’s innovative electric powertrains exemplify the first, while ProPILOT Assist, available in many markets, showcases the second. Designed for single-lane driving on the highway, ProPILOT Assist maintains speed and lane position while reducing driver fatigue.

Nissan Intelligent Integration

The Nissan LEAF has also opened up a new world of clean energy capabilities that stretch beyond efficient transportation.

Nissan Energy is an ecosystem centered on Nissan electric vehicles that make them even more useful to customers by leveraging their batteries’ ability to store and share energy. It enables electric vehicle owners to easily connect their cars with energy systems to charge their batteries, power homes and businesses or help balance power grids. As part of Nissan Energy, the company has already started infrastructure pilots in Europe, Japan and the U.S., and future commercial uses are in development.

Nissan Energy also includes new efforts to reuse batteries, a vital step in enhancing the sustainability of electric vehicles. Along with strategic partners, Nissan has taken LEAF batteries and repurposed them for use in off-grid street lighting, power banks for sports complexes, and more.

The facility is expected to open in fall 2019.

2016 Nissan Altima – Now with Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC)

Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) works like a standard cruise control, only with the added feature of maintaining a selected distance from the vehicle in front of you.

The distance to the vehicle ahead can be selected at any time depending on the traffic conditions.
Each time the DISTANCE switch is pushed, the set distance will change to long, medium, short and back to long again.
The distance to the vehicle ahead will change according to the vehicle speed. The higher the vehicle speed, the longer the distance.
If the vehicle in front is traveling slower than your set speed, the ICC will automatically match that vehicle’s speed. Once the road ahead clears, the ICC will resume your set speed automatically
Each time the engine is started, the initial setting becomes “Long.”
When the road ahead is clear, the driver can set the speed range between approximately 20 to 90 miles per hour.

To set the ICC system, push and quickly release the CRUISE ON-OFF switch. You can confirm the setting of the Intelligent Cruise Control system in the vehicle information display.

The detection range of the sensor is approximately 390 feet in front of you. It will not detect the following objects:

Stationary and slow moving vehicles
Pedestrians or objects in the roadway
Oncoming vehicles in the same lane
