Nissan New-product Road Show Hits Geneva

It looks like American drivers won’t be the only ones enjoying a flock of all-new Nissan vehicles during the coming months. Nissan Of Seattle told us the automaker’s latest and greatest products were just unveiled in Europe, at the Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland, where Nissan showcased “a new generation of innovative European designed, engineered and built models that will redefine standards in their sectors.”

Among them was the striking Nissan Resonance crossover concept, which had its world premiere in Detroit in January. The Resonance previews the next generation of medium to small crossovers from the brand and has been an instant eye-catcher everywhere it’s been seen. The Nissan Vancouver Dealership believes this is due to its highly dynamic exterior and a cabin inspired by a vision of premium space travel.

Also on hand:

  • 2014 Nissan Note: The next-gen complement to the Versa sedan, slated to arrive in the U.S. in June with EPA marks of up to 40 mpg highway, best-in-class cargo space and a price tag of $13,990.
  • 2013 Nissan Leaf: To bring its technology to a wider audience, the upgraded Leaf provides European customers with an increased all-electric driving range, a lower price and in-market production—just as it’s already doing for American customers.
  • 2013 Juke Nismo: This juiced-up Juke has been carefully prepped by Nissan’s Nismo performance partners for increased athleticism and style, and is expected at local dealerships later in 2013.
  • 2013 Nissan GT-R: Nissan’s commitment to continuous improvement has raised the performance bar even higher for the 2013 GT-R, now boasting noticeably sharper, more responsive handling to go with its 545-horsepower V-6 engine.

“Innovation, excitement and a desire to provide something different are the bedrock on which Nissan’s success is built,” said Paul Willcox, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Nissan Europe. “This success comes at a difficult time for the industry but reflects how Nissan can quickly adapt to changing trading conditions at the same time as appealing to new segments with our range of crossovers, EVs and advanced small cars like Note.”
