The Japanese company announced that today, September 24th, start the first deliveries of the new generation Nissan Note.
The Note production is now in full flow at Nissan’s biggest European manufacturing plant in Sunderland, UK. With a full suite of advanced technologies normally found in the premium sector and a bold design accommodating a highly versatile cabin, the Note makes a highly compelling package for B-segment customers.
Geraldine Ingham, Chief Marketing Manager for Nissan in Europe: “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.”
Three engines are available from launch: a 1.2-litre 80PS three-cylinder petrol, a 98PS 1.2-litre supercharged DIG-S delivering only 99g – one of the best in class for B-segment petrol models – and a 1.5-litre 90PS dCi diesel delivering only 92g/km. A smooth and efficient CVT transmission is available on the 1.2-litre DIG-S engine.
New Note’s production officially started on September 16th in Nissan’s factory in Sunderland, UK. The new Note heralds the beginning of Nissan’s busiest launch period in its history in Europe, supporting the company’s goal of becoming the number 1 Asian brand in Europe. With design, engineering and manufacturing operations all based within Europe, over 80% of the Nissan cars sold in Europe are made in Europe.
