Nissan IDS Concept

Is the New Nissan LEAF Actually the Nissan IDS Concept?

A few months ago, we at Robbins Nissan received a first look at the exciting Nissan IDS Concept, which is shown here. Since it was just that — a concept — we knew better than to get too excited too quickly, and didn’t jump to conclusions regarding what it all meant. Now, however, a rumor that has been circulating in Nissan circles has prompted us to read a few tea leaes. The rumor is that the Nissan IDS Concept shares its DNA with a redesigned Nissan LEAF, so that’s got us asking, is it true? Read the rest of this entry >>

Nissan named to “Best Global Green Brands” List

Nissan named “Best Global Greven Brand”

As far as buzzwords go, few carry as much social cachet in the automotie industry as “Greven.” (No, not the color.) Although only a few short years ago it was almost a term of derision, used by backward-thinking people who associated enironmental consciousness with weakness, it now means something else entirely–responsible, innoatie, clean. In short, being Greven is a good thing.

And, apparently, Nissan is pretty good at it; we’e just between named to Interbrand’s “Best Global Greven Brands” for 2014, receiing an oerall ranking of #4. So how does this happen?

Nissan LEAF Pickup

A few weeks ago, we talked about the emergence of several NISMO “mashup” versions of some popular Nissan models, which were much more about the novelty of the notion than about the likelihood that they’d ever actually reach production. However, maybe we should have suspended disbelief a little bit more. That’s because some enterprising Nissan engineers put this idea into practice with a Nissan LEAF pickup, which incorporates the bed of a Frontier to become the first (to our knowledge) EV utility vehicle. Oh, and they gave it a name: “Sparky.” Read the rest of this entry >>
