Local News CURRENT ARCHIVE NISSAN LAUNCHES ALL-NEW PULSAR AND NOTE MODELS AT THE SINGAPORE MOTORSHOW 2017 12 January 2017 Nissan today launched two new hot hatchbacks in the form of the all-new Nissan Pulsar and the latest Nissan Note at the Singapore Motorshow 2017. Alongside the hatchback debuts, Nissan is providing a glimpse of its Nissan Intelligent Mobility strategy, its vision for the automotive future in the face of rising challenges across the region. Launch of all-new Nissan Pulsar Combining bold design, technical innovations and excellent interior space, the all-new Nissan Pulsar brings a fresh dimension to the hatchback segment, offering all the familiar Nissan qualities in a stylish new package. Instantly recognisable with its trademark Nissan V-Motion grille and signature boomerang-shaped LED lighting with bold and energetic curves on the body side, Nissan Pulsar combines strong lines with immaculate detailing to create an elegant, athletic form. Pulsar’s all-turbocharged 1.2L engine offers the perfect combination of performance and efficiency. It punches above its weight with an output of 115PS and high torque of 165Nm, while delivering an excellent fuel efficiency of 5.1L/100km and CO2 emission of 119g/km enabling it to enjoy a $10,000 CEVS rebate. Mated to an advanced Xtronic CVT transmission, Pulsar is engineered to deliver the best of both worlds for drivers, it features ultra-smooth power delivery at low engine speeds and positive, direct shifts under heavier loads. Nissan Pulsar also redefines what buyers can expect in a hatchback. Thanks to a long wheelbase (2,700mm) and clever positioning of the seats, the Pulsar enjoys the excellent rear legroom (692mm), giving the utmost comfort to the rear passengers. The Pulsar also comes with a practical boot that combines a large capacity (385 litres) with a wide loading aperture. For those requiring even more load volume, the 60:40 rear seats simply fold flat to liberate 1,395 litres of space. Despite this, it retains a compact footprint (length 4,387mm), making it easy to park in tight urban environments. Completing the Pulsar's packaging masterclass is a superior build quality where Nissan’s design and ergonomics team has created a cabin environment that combines comfort, style and usability through a host of premium features eg. intelligent key system with push start ignition, LED headlights, and a 6.9-inch high-capacitive touch screen interface. 2017 Nissan Note debuts in Singapore Following its global unveiling in Japan in November 2016, the 2017 Nissan Note has now arrived in Singapore. The Note accentuates its forward-looking style with the iconic V-Motion grille and newly designed front and rear bumpers and headlights, producing a low and wide stance. The signature boomerang-shaped rear combination lights paired with the new front fascia asserts the dynamical strength and vibrant character of the Note. On the inside, Note’s cabin gets an uplift with premium leather seat upholstery as well as a sportier steering wheel design. Offered with new vibrant colours and aerodynamic design, the 2017 Nissan Note combines the best of Nissan’s innovation and technology, striking a perfect balance between functionality and fun while delivering endless excitement. The well-loved features such as the 1.2L DIG-S engine remains unchanged, delivering a smooth drive performance while achieving outstanding fuel economy of 4.6L/100km, with 98PS of power output and 142Nm of torque and the impressive interior length of up to 2,065mm, giving generous cabin space for all your needs. “Following the successful introduction of our Nissan Crossovers, we are ready to take Nissan to the next level with the launch of our new hatchback range. The Pulsar and 2017 Note will complement our current Nissan product line-up and widen Nissan’s appeal to a bigger target audience,” said Mr Glenn Tan, Executive Director of Tan Chong International Limited. Nissan Intelligent Mobility The e-POWER variant of the 2017 Note, which was unveiled in Japan recently, will also be on display at the Singapore Motorshow. This model offers an insight into Nissan Intelligent Mobility – the company’s vision to make transportation safer, smarter, and more enjoyable, with the ultimate goal of achieving zero-emissions and zero-fatalities. Intelligent Mobility will guide Nissan on how its cars are powered, driven, and integrated into society, all while staying focused on creating more enjoyable driving experiences. At the core of Nissan Intelligent Mobility are three areas of innovation: #Nissan Intelligent Driving – creating more driver confidence, spearheaded by Nissan's autonomous drive technology, ProPILOT. #Nissan Intelligent Power – more efficiency, more power, spearheaded by electric vehicle (EV) technologies such as e-POWER, an electric-motor drive system. #Nissan Intelligent Integration – keeping people more connected and shaping a sustainable ecosystem from making cars interact with people, other cars and road infrastructure. “Nissan Intelligent Mobility is about building a better future for Nissan customers where cars are their partners, helping drivers to become more confident and more connected,” said Mr Yutaka Sanada, Regional Senior Vice President and Head of the Operations Committee in Asia & Oceania for Nissan Motor Corporation Limited. Other vehicle exhibits at the show include Nissan’s best-selling Crossovers – Juke, Qashqai, and X-Trail along with other popular passenger vehicles.
