Today’s Bluetooth-equipped cars handle hands-free phone calls pretty seamlessly, but things were a little different back in 1988.
After decades as a mainstay in Mexico’s taxi fleets, Nissan announced the Tsuru—a new 1992 Sentra, basically—will cease production after a dismal zero-star crash test. Just how bad was the Tsuru, especially compared to a modern car? This bad.
Leveraging the same auto-follow ProPILOT technology that allows its vehicles to autonomously navigate traffic, Nissan has created a bunch of self-driving chairs that promise to make it a lot easier the next time you’re forced to wait in line.
With all the criticism recently surrounding self-driving cars, you might think it’s a strange move for Nissan to announce some news regarding its own system. Well, it is, but the company is aware.
Drone racing is exciting in its own right, but for spectators the sport still can’t quite match the horsepower and top speeds of auto racing—or can it? Nissan’s GT-R drone, designed and built by Tornado XBlades Racing, can hit a top speed of 115 miles per hour. It can accelerate from zero to sixty in under 1.3 seconds.
What if a car could be controlled from a computer halfway around the world? Computer security researcher and hacker Troy Hunt has managed to do just that, via a web browser and an Internet connection, with an unmodified Nissan Leaf in another country. While so far the control was limited to the HVAC system, it’s a…
The engineers at Nissan are excited about autonomous driving technology. So excited in fact, they pulled themselves away from working on actual cars to demonstrate how smart they were with self-parking office chairs. Office chairs that terrifyingly move around when you leave the room.
Well, I’m not sure I’d call that unit a steering “wheel,” but Nissan does on their new autonomous driving concept, the IDS. If you’re going to ride around in a car that drives itself sometimes, I guess it had better be interesting, right?
Seats, headrests, the entire dashboard—these are just some of the surfaces Nissan is covering with screen displays in their new concept car. We’re already glued to phones and computers already, so why not fry our eyes in front of pixels as car passengers, as well?
Against all odds, the Nissan NV-200 will rule the streets of New York. As of today, the vast majority of cab drivers must buy the so-called Taxi of Tomorrow when they retire their old yellow cabs.
Two minutes and 10 seconds, to be specific, shattering the old record by a wide margin. It’s amazing what you can do with a Nissan Juke RS Nismo if your name is Terry Grant.
Sometimes the best ideas come from thinking far, far outside the box. That’s what Nissan and Japan’s marine science agency did with their new deep sea rover. To build it, engineers used the same tech as a park-assisting car—which is now helping to give scientists a 360-degree view of the ocean floor.
Australia is filled with poisonous shit that’s constantly trying to kill you. But it’s also filled with the world’s best four-wheel drive vehicles. Yeah, basically everything the little off-road enthusiast inside of you has ever wanted is here. And I just moved here in order to drive it.
Japanese automakers have been shoving all sorts of devices into vehicles, especially kei cars, for years now. We've seen many a wacky concept come out of design studios, and a surprising number of them have actually made it into production. Well, Nissan may have just taken it to a whole 'nother level with their new…
Katayama Yutaka (editor's note: family name first), former executive of Nissan USA and responsible for building the Datsun/Nissan Z (known as the Fairlady in Japan) into a well known brand in the 70s, has died at the age of 105.
NASA and Nissan just announced a five-year partnership in the development of a self-driving car that will not only tackle city streets but also alien planets. Most of the research will take place in Silicon Valley, where both organizations already have research facilities. And believe it or not, NASA wants to learn…
This is fun and I don't care it was made by the car manufacturer. I care that someone was crazy enough to think about putting a freaking car inside one of those giant inflatable balls—called Zorbs, apparently, perhaps the biggest ever made—and then pushed it down a hill. I only wish they put people inside.
In the aftermath of Google's unexpected unveiling of its very own steering wheel-free cutemobile, the internet is dripping again with opinions about self-driving cars. Some say they'll save us. Some say they're doomed. But really, we're all after the same thing: a better way to get around. And right now, self-driving…
Have you ever been hesitant to over-pack a vehicle with luggage or passengers because it would obscure the sightline for your rearview mirror? Nissan's Smart rearview mirror solves that problem by alternately displaying a live video feed from a camera mounted on the back of the vehicle.
