2010 Nissan Green Program Update

One of the most active players in the automotive industry when it comes to reducing CO2 emissions and fuel consumption, Japanese manufacturer Nissan, drew the line today on its Green Program (NGP 2010) and let us know what they managed to do so far. In addition, Nissan also revealed some of its plans for the future.

Between January 2008 and June 2009, the Alliance established 27 "zero-emission mobility partnerships" with governments, municipalities and other sectors around the world for full-scale EV diffusion, including parties in Japan, the US, Israel, Portugal, Monaco, the UK, France, Switzerland, Ireland, China, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Nissan introduced in April this year the Nissan ECO Series vehicles (NECO), with 16 models available for the Japanese market: Tiida, Tiida Latio, Cube, Note, Wingroad, Serena, X-Trail, Lafesta, AD/AD Expert, March, Presage, Pino, Otti, Atlas H43, NV200 Vanette and Moco.

As for the future, Nissan plans to launch, in cooperation with local governments in Japan, an eco-driving promotion activity, in which customers will compete with each other on fuel efficiency and learn eco-driving.

The Zero-Emission Mobility Partnerships, developed in cooperation with Renault, will continue to expand throughout the year, as Nissan will accelerate its efforts to develop new vehicles (including on powered by a clean diesel, scheduled for release next spring).

"These efforts range from such global issues as the environmental protection to contribution to communities, promoting diversity and making personal mobility available to as many people as possible. Nissan continues promoting the "Nissan Green Program 2010," based on the "Blue Citizenship" spirit by introducing effective technologies, products and services into the market,"
the manufacturer said in a release.
