Who can forget the horror on CNN when, in 2011, an earthquake caused a tsunami that decimated large swathes of Japan? The little van in a futile race against the flood. The houses and building swept away, the ships thrown against shore-side buildings. Soon afterwards we learned of the catastrophe that was the flooded nuclear power station Fukushima. But one positive story to come out of that disaster was the brand-new Nissan LEAF EV and the new role that was invented for it on the spot.
Machines are coming to take your job, and once they have it, they will . . . HAHAHAAA!!!! No, actually, they are not.
Automation, robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) are scary. This is because they, in our lifetime terms, have disrupted and changed the world we work in. People see the factory of the future devoid of people, machines making things, AI deciding how they should make them.
We do not often communicate as a group to our various brand customers, however, we believe this situation requires the most efficient communication method.
When you think of Nissan, you automatically associate the brand with good quality workmanship and automotive engineering. They are a well-known, reputable and established brand across the world and have excelled in all departments over the last few years. What some may not realise is that it took them nearly a century to achieve the success they enjoy today.
Japanese car manufacturers have been quietly and politely poking world market for decades. The offerings in the late ‘50s through the ‘60s were underwhelming, to say the least.

It looks mean. It has 530kW and 780 N.m. on tap It costs more than R16m. There will be only 50 ever made, but most of these have been snapped up in advance. It is the Nissan GT-R50 by Italdesign.
The final production model of this rare monster has been announced and will be on display at the Geneva International Motor Show in March 2020. This production model closely matches the prototype version that stunned and surprised back in June 2018.
Welcome back to the in-depth explanation of the Nissan New Vehicle Warranty. In our previous blog, we took at look at situations in which your warranty would definitely not be valid (e.g. when the equipment was installed by a non-accredited technician, etc.). Today, we’ll share more insight into damages and failures that will be exempt from the cover provided by our warranty.
One of the best things about buying a Nissan car or bakkie is the warranty that goes along with it. It’s one of the hallmarks of our brand that we stand by our product and have tailored a warranty that proves that we have faith in our workmanship. However, every contract comes with its fine print, and we believe in being completely transparent. This is why we decided to explain the limitations of the warranty, and when it might not be valid.
The Nissan Qashqai is as difficult to define as it is to pronounce. Is it an SUV or a hatchback? The facts that matter is that it is now in its second generation, very good to look at, great to drive, a stranger to the pump and there are seven models to choose from.
Nissan has published sketches of three concepts, each with five sets of double wheels but no engine, a high tech seat but no steering wheel, and allows you to race against the fastest without really moving much.
