Last month, the 109th Geneva Motor Show took place at the Geneva Palexpo Convention Centre. As one of the world’s busiest motor shows, all of the major car manufacturers come to show off the hottest additions to their collections. This year, Nissan took to the stage and exhibit unveiled the three latest members of the Nissan family.
At this year’s Geneva Motor Show Nissan have hosted the premiere of the final version of its e-NV200 electric van. The van is powered similar to that of the leaf with a combination of all electric and battery powered drive. So not only is it green, but stylish piece too! The changes from the NV200 include a re-engineered chassis, a new battery pack, higher capacity regenerative braking system and interior revisions, the five seater people carrier is said to be quicker than its predecessor the Nv200. We will get to see more of the e-NV200 when it becomes available in June.
The Juke originally defined the small crossover market when it first launched, taking off and hitting the main stream, with people flocking to their local Nissan dealers such as ourselves to pick them up. The new Juke is pretty similar to the old but they’ve made subtle exterior changes as well as adding the option for a 1.2 engine. On top of minor changes there is also a large amount of space added to the boot, which should make the Juke more accommodating to large families. The official release date of the Juke will be very soon. Keep your eye on the West Way website for more details!
Nissan GT-R Nismo
Nissans iconic GT-R Nismo makes its first European debut this year at Geneva. Powered by the same 3.6 v6 litre engines as its predecessors the power is now sent to all four of the wheels through the six speed automatic paddle shifters. Although Nissan claim it to be more track focused it is also adequate for the road, with specifically developed tyres, increased rigidity on the body and revised suspension and dampers. Nissan have really gone the extra mile on this vehicle – the red stitched Alcantara Recaro bucket seats are testament to that. The GT-R Nismo will be available in July. Speak to one of our high performance dealerships for more details.
We’re excited about the arrival of all these new models and are looking forward to having them in our showrooms soon! If you need any more information please visit our website!
