New York City’s New Nissan Taxi Service May Appeal to Chicago and Other Cities

Finance a Nissan in ChicagoAt Kelly Nissan, our Chicago Nissan dealer, we are excited to have received the news that on April 20, 2015 is the start date for the Taxi of Tomorrow: the Nissan NV200. This program will call for most retiring taxis to be replaced with the NV200, which will significantly increase the number of wheelchair-accessible taxis in the fleet.

Former Taxis Envy the NV

The TLC Taxi of Tomorrow guidelines state that the NV200 Taxi will be the sole option for Manhattan yellow taxis. Nissan is partnering up with BraunAbility, the global leader in automotive mobility, to provide a WAV (wheelchair-accessible vehicle) Nissan NV200 Taxi. These are now available for purchase.

More than 500 Nissan NV200 Taxis are already in service in New York City. This new model Taxi has more content specifically tailored to use as a New York City cab than any other vehicle prior to it. This, of course, also includes imperative safety features.

Nissan Specials in ChicagoThe Nissan NV200 taxi is the only taxi that leaves the factory with the installed partition, which has been specifically designed to ensure that no safety features are compromised by after-market installations. This taxi was crash-tested with the partition and meets Federal safety standards, which happens to be an attribute that no other automaker provides for taxis. The Nissan NV200 also meets global pedestrian-protection standards aimed at softening the impact to a pedestrian if ever struck by a vehicle.

This new taxi also offers its passengers various amenities to make their trip more pleasant, including ample cargo room for transporting luggage and USB charging ports, in addition to a 12-volt electrical outlet.

The NV200 offers a functional and spacious interior footprint that is housed in a compacted exterior. When this model is deployed across the entire taxi fleet, the equivalent of five square-acres of space will be feed up on city streets. That’s impressive.

It is a strong possibility that Chicago Nissan fans can expect to see the Nissan NV200, the Taxi of Tomorrow in the near future, if they make a solid impression on the Big Apple. For more information about the NV200, visit us at our Chicago Nissan dealer or contact us at (708) 572-7490.

Chicago Nissan Dealer Boasts the Brand’s Creativity in Rio

Finance a Nissan in ChicagoAt Kelly Nissan, our Chicago Nissan dealer, we are proud to work for a brand that is creative both in its vehicle’s designs and its company’s basis. At Nissan Brazil in Rio De Janeiro, workers created a drawing contest with the workers’ children to celebrate Children’s Day. The prompt was “Automobile of the Future” and who better to help than the automobile thinkers themselves. The team at Nissan Design America Rio agreed to be the judges and in the end, went above and beyond transforming the selected winners into real sketchs.

Sketches Turned Concept

Over a 10 day span in October, the children of Nissan Brazil’s workers submitted drawings to the contest. The kids were instructed to draw the car that they would like to see in the future. Winners were chosen after the Children’s Day. The level of creativity exhibited by the children exceeded everyone’s expectations. Beyond the three winners, the Nissan Design team awarded an honorable mention prize to one drawing showing concern with the planet’s sustainability.

Nissan Specials in ChicagoThere winners were as followed:

  • Karine, a five-year old daughter of a worker from Resende Industrial Complex

  • Sophya, a 10-year old daughter of a worker from Resende Industrial Complex

  • Gabriela, a nine-year old daughter of a worker from Resende Industrial Complex

  • Nathália (honorable mention), a 10-year old daughter of a worker from São José dos Pinhais’ Unity

After selecting the winners, the designers interpreted each drawing into professional sketches. At the same time, the designers were in the process of finishing two concepts that were presented earlier this year at the São Paulo Motor Show 2014. The Nissan designers gave the children’s drawings the same level of attention as they gave to the real concept cars.

Visit us at our Nissan dealer in Chicago to discover how truly creative our brand is. For more information, contact us at (708) 572-7490.

Our Chicago Nissan Dealer Presents A “Truckumentary”

Finance a Nissan in ChicagoAt Kelly Nissan, our Chicago Nissan dealer, we want to inform all of our Titan fans that the brand has created a “Truckumentary” to mark the bold, ground-up redesign of its full-size pickup. Nissan is publishing a multi-chapter Titan “Truckumentary” to highlight the design, planning, and engineering of the next generation Titan pickup.

Chapters Unveil the Titan’s Story

Chicago Nissan fans can indulge in the series that has been kicked off by Fred Diaz, senior vice president, Nissan Sales and Marketing and Operations US., Nissan North America, Inc. The series premier features a stroll through Nissan’s truck history. This segment was hosted by Brent Hagan of Nissan product planning.

The 2015 Titan will make its first impression to North America at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit on January 12, only days away. The new Titan was designed in California, engineered in Michigan, tested in Arizona and will be assembled in Mississippi and powered by engines from Indiana and Tennessee.

Nissan Specials in ChicagoUntil the launch of this series, Nissan has kept the Titan development a guarded secret, but it did reveal that a 5.0L diesel V8 from Cummins with claims of over 300 horsepower and around 550lb.-ft. of torque will be part of the powertrain range. The truck has also been rumored to offer a wider range of models than before, including the possibility of a regular cab version and a V6 engine option.

“The ‘Truckumentary’ is not meant to be the all-encompassing last word on Titan,” said Miller. “Rather it’s the continuing story of the vehicle’s evolution, accompanied by a close look at the American-based team that is bringing this all-new truck to market.”

The series launched in mid-December with more than a dozen videos coming throughout the next calendar year. So mark the dates and get your popcorn ready for a rare look inside the Nissan Titan’s history and legacy. For more information, contact us at our Chicago Nissan dealer by calling (708) 572-7490.

As for additional features, this model includes a StopTech Big Brake Kit, Yokohama ADVAN NEOVA Tires, and a Full Exterior Wrap by Sticky Fingers Design.  This vehicle is unstoppable when it comes to features.  The competition may be shaking in their boots right about now.

If all of that wasn’t’ enough, the crowd sourced model is the winner of two Digiday Sammy Awards: “Best Social Creative” and “Best Facebook Branding Campaign.”  After everything we’ve learned about the model, these awards were well earned.

Chicago Nissan Dealer Looks to the Future, While Honoring the Past

“The only thing new in the world is the history you do not know.”- Harry S. Truman

History tends to repeat itself and it is from this history that we must learn and grow.  It is important to look back on this history, especially if you are not familiar with it.  Everything has a history. The Nissan Skyline is no exception to this rule.

Chicago Nissan history buffs know that the Skyline started out back in 1969 and has evolved into the present day Nissan R35.  Let’s take it back a couple of generations ago to 1995, when the R33 was born.

Chicago GT-R dealerThe V.spec model weighed heavier, had the newer ATTESA E-TS Pro all wheel drive system, obtained a four wheel independent channel anti-lock braking system,  and had a sportier suspension than the base model GT-R.  At the same time, the R33 GT-R V.spec N1 model was released.  It was made lighter, removing several features and was given the slightly revised R33 N1 engine.

In 1999, the R34 was born.  Two models, the Skyline GT-R and GT-R V.spec, were released in this year, along with a R34 N1 model.  Another special model was also released, called the M-spec, which added the “M” for the chief engineer of Nissan, Mizuno.   New features of the R34 included a shorter length from front to rear, a reduced front overhang, glossy red valve covers, and a 5.8” LCD multifunction display on the dashboard.

The V.spec ll appeared in 2000.  This model had stiffer suspension, larger rear brake rotors, a carbon fiber hood, an iridium center console, aluminum pedals, black cloth upholstered seats, and white turn lenses.

In 2002, the final production model of the R34 was made.  The two models were called the Skyline GT-R V.spec ll Nür and the Skyline GT-R M-spec Nür.  The Nür stood from the famous German Nürburgring racetrack where the Skyline was developed.  They included an improved engine, larger turbochargers, steel blades, a different color of stitching on the interior trim, gold valve covers, and the speedometer reaching 186m/h.

Chicago Can Come Experience The Future

Chicago Nissan specialsFast forward to present day and the model that Chicago GT-R fans have come to know and love has appeared on our lot. Today, the current model takes it to a new level.  It reaches new highs and has been updated for the modern Chicago Nissan driver.

We wanted to offer our customers the future, while still honoring the past.  Contact us today at 866-450-8110 to set up a test drive in the newest GT-R and be a part of the future!
