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.

The all-new Note offers a key breakthrough in the advancement of Nissan's small vehicle range. Presently giving everything that B-segment customers want and more, Nissan Note brings new ideas and a heap of valuable, usable innovations to a much broader audience.

Like the Juke and Qashqai, the Note is the aftereffect of a design and engineering program that has seen each key component created and refined for European customers. Engineering work carried out at the Nissan Technical Center Europe (NTCE) in both the UK and Spain resulted to a car that surpasses sector standards, and conveys audacious new ideas to the sector. Completing the Note's European qualifications is another production line at Nissan's UK plant in Sunderland. The product of a €147.500 interest in new production offices, the Note is created with the Juke and Qashqai.

Nissan has turned out to be synonymous with the improvement of usable and purposeful day-to-day innovation - believing that top-notch features shouldn't be held for renowned models at inflated costs. The all-new Note takes this bold logic to another level with an extensive range of cutting-edge technologies that make life safer and more comfortable for drivers.

Nissan Safety Shield holds its European premiere in the Note. Simple in concept yet highly revolutionary in design and engineering, it comprises a bundle of innovations applied intelligently to provide substantial real-world advantages. Blind side Warning, Lane Departure Warning and an advanced Moving Object Detection system merge to convey a new level of assistance to the driver.
