Nissan expects double deliveries for sleeker Note

Article by Anita Panait, on September 29, 2013

Nissan is expecting sales of the now sleeker and safety-tech laden Note subcompact to double. According to Nissan, the Note's so-called Safety Shield is the first in the segment that offers consumers affordable assistance features typically found only in larger, much expensive premium cars. Safety Shield monitors movements from all angles, providing blind-spot warning, moving-object detection and lane-departure warning.

While competing systems depend on multi-camera and radar technology, Nissan’s Safety Shield uses data sent from a single wide-angle rearview camera. While the outgoing Note sports a boxy look, the new subcompact boasts of a sleeker design.

Thomas Hausch, chief of Nissan's operations in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland, remarked that the Japanese carmaker is aiming the car at the heart of the subcompact segment. The new Note bears a starting tag of EUR13,990 in Germany – a pricing that is aimed against the Volkswagen Polo and Ford Fiesta. Nissan has sold 472,000 units of the current Note in its eight-year life cycle.
