Nissan of Keene announces new website for Nissan Commercial Vehicles

Nissan of Keene is proud to announce a new website devoted to the new line of Nissan Commercial Vehicles. The site featuring the new Nissan Commercial vans and trucks, is located at http://www.nissancommercialvehicles.us .

Based on a chassis similar to that of Nissan’s full-size Titan pickup, these vans represent an entirely new line of business for the automaker in the U.S. market. (Nissan of Keene will primarily serve customers in New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts, but customers from anywhere in New England are welcome.)

They are full-size (maxi) vans that come in three versions, the NV1500, NV2500HD and NV3500HD, and offer a choice of a V-6 or V-8 engine and either a standard-height roof or a raised roof that is high enough for someone 6-foot-3 to stand up inside.

The NV has a 120-inch cargo floor length and 70.2-inch maximum interior width. Standard models can accommodate cargo up to 55.8 inches, while those with the high roof can hold items up to 76.9 inches high. That also allows the interior to be configured as a mobile workspace, in which most people would be able to stand up without touching the ceiling

The dealership is very enthusiast about this new line of Nissan vehicles, which will be at the New Hampshire dealership in April. (Both Nissan Commercial Vans and Trucks are expected at that time.) Nothing quite like these vehicles were available before now, and Nissan of Keene is proud to offer this entirely new line. “A work vehicle that’s more than a van.”

Nissan of Keene employees discovered for themselves how these vans are easy to drive and maneuver through city traffic, even though they’re 20 inches longer than the E-series (formerly called Econoline) vans from Ford, sales of which account for 55 percent of the large-van market. The Nissan vans have a shorter turning radius than the Ford models. (Nissan brought examples of both for road-testing.)

Also different is the engine layout in the Nissan van. It has an engine compartment that sticks out in front of the vehicle as it does in a traditional pickup, while in the Ford and GM commercial vans, the engine sits under a large cover between the driver and front-seat passenger, severely limiting legroom for the passenger. In the industry, this cover is called a “doghouse.”

Pothole Season (And what you can do about it.)

Mark Twain once said, “There are two seasons in New England: Winter and the Fourth of July”. But Mark Twain never drove a car. If he had, we suspect he might have added, “Pothole Season”.

Here in New England, the snow and ice of winter combined with torrential rains have left roads in bad shape. The repeated freezing and thawing of moisture seeps through road surfaces and causes potholes.

Keep these driving tips in mind this Spring as you travel:

Hitting potholes can throw your car’s front end out of alignment. If you feel your car “pulling” during driving, that’s a clue that you could have a problem. Check the tread on your tires: uneven tread wear can be a sign of misalignment. If you hit a severe pothole, have Nissan of Keene check your vehicle’s alignment and tire balance.

When you hit a pothole you can damage your tire and/or your vehicle’s wheel. Keeping your tires properly inflated will help reduce damage from potholes and other road hazards.

The impact of potholes on tires increases dramatically with speed and can cause hidden, internal damage that could lead to tire failure weeks, or even months, later. It’s best to avoid potholes entirely, but if that’s not possible, don’t brake during the pothole impact. Instead, apply brakes before hitting a pothole and release them just prior to impact. Braking during the impact sets up the tire and wheel assembly for a “solid hit” against the edge of the hole. Less severe damage occurs when a tire is rolling than when it is skidding over a hole during braking.

But there is a little bit of good news in all this: Right now Nissan of Keene has what we call “The Nissan of Keene Mud Season/ Pothole Special”. It’s a great deal and will put your mind at ease. (Heck, we’ll even clean the mud off your car and wash the windows as part of the deal.) Click here for details.

Nissan of Keene sees the all-new 100% electric Nissan LEAF

The new Nissan LeafRecently Steve Fisk from Nissan of Keene traveled to the Boston Museum of Science for a sneak peek at the new Nissan LEAF, Nissan’s forthcoming 100% electric car. “The LEAF is due to arrive at Nissan dealerships later this year”, says Fisk, “and Nissan of Keene will start taking orders for them in April, when Nissan releases the final pricing. So I was very happy to see this exiting new car in person. This is not some crazy concept car- it’s real and it will be in our showroom very soon.”

According to Nissan, the all-electric LEAF will have a top speed of 90 M.P.H, and have the ability to travel up to 100 miles on a single charge. Charging can be archived using a separate charging station, either at charging station at the customer’s home or work- or at one of the public charging stations that Nissan and local governments are entering into agreements to install right now.

The LEAF can be charged at three different rates, depending upon the type of charger. Charging from complete discharge to full charge with 120v AC will take up to 16 hours, while charging with a 240v charger will take only 8 hours. In the near future chargers will be offered which operate at 440v DC and will be able to charge 0-80% in about 27 minutes according to  Nissan.

The Nissan LEAF in Boston last week was one of only two actual cars Nissan has produced thus far. It cost Nissan $2.5 million per copy for these prototypes. Nissan expects to build around 40,000 LEAFs for the 2011 model year. Purchasers will be eligible for a $7500 federal tax credit for the car itself, as well up to an additional $2,000 tax credit for a charging unit. While final pricing has not yet been announced, it is expected that it should be in the $25,000-$35,000 price range, depending upon the level of equipment. This price will include the cost of the battery.

“The car itself is larger than I expected”, says Fisk. “It is a four-door hatchback with navigation system standard- and believe it or not it has no transmission, as it doesn’t need one. The one I saw was a silver-green with a white leather interior. I thought it was pretty sharp looking. It looks to me as if navigation is standard. The display can be set to tell you how much juice you have left in one of three ways: miles left, percent of charge left, or a circle of approximate range remaining- highlighted on the navigation screen. As a precaution against getting stranded, once the car gets to low charge (about 10% remaining), it goes into “limp-home mode”. Yet even in limp-home mode it can travel at up to 55 miles per hour.”

He went on to say that the LEAF will connect to your smart phone, so you can tell it when to charge or to tell it to start up the air conditioning before you drive home from work. He then added, “Or your car can call YOU, and let you know when it’s fully charged.”

Fisk pointed out that he is intrigued with the idea that the car doesn’t have a gas tank or an exhaust system. “They had a mock-up available for invitees to drive, and it’s very quick off the line. Without an internal combustion engine, it was almost entirely silent too. Well, except for the tires chirping off the line. The mock up was a Nissan Versa with a LEAF engine in it.” He said the mock-up in lieu of an actual LEAF to drive was because there are only two actual cars in existence, both traveling around the country on a pre-release tour. “Nissan tells us we will have cars to deliver to our customers later this year though”, he says.
