First Deliveries begin
The first deliveries of the new Nissan Note start this week. Nissan has already taken more than fourteen thousand pre-orders which exceeded all expectations. Nissan now anticipate sales of more than 100,000 cars per year in Europe for this new enhanced model.
Geraldine Ingham, chief marketing manager for Nissan in Europe said “the new Note fulfils a really important role in our new product portfolio, combining smart design with purposeful technology that has never been offered in the B-segment before. We've used design and engineering innovation to make premium technologies accessible to everyone." The new Note is the first Nissan in Europe to feature Nissan Safety Shield. Linking three advanced systems, Nissan Safety Shield acts as an intelligent co-pilot to the driver to help them make the best decisions in all situations. The system combines Lane Departure Warning, Blind Spot Warning and Moving Object Detection to bring premium technology to the small car sector for the first time. Also making its sector debut is Nissan's acclaimed Around View Monitor, a feature that provides drivers with a remarkable 360-degree bird's eye view to take the stress out of reversing.
The new Nissan Note has been completely redesigned from the ground up and not only does it feature a new package of technologies but the running costs are greatly reduced plus it has first class safety features. Co2 emissions are as low as 95g/km and there is a range of diesel and petrol engines offered including a 1.2-litre three-cylinder unit that generates 80PS and a 98PS 1.2-litre supercharged DIG-S plus a 1.5-litre dCi diesel that produces 90PS. A CVT transmission is available on the 1.2-litre DIG-S engine and all variants of the new Note are equipped with an idle stop/start system as standard.
