‘Nissan 360’ event marks 80th anniversary of company

Nissan Motor is marking its 80th anniversary with ‘Nissan 360′, a month-long showcase of the latest breakthroughs in vehicle technology, sustainability and market expansion by one of the world’s leading automotive groups. The program, held in the USA, will highlight the latest models and engineering innovations in a series of briefings and testing opportunities for the media, investors, suppliers, dealers and industry experts.

“Nissan is proud to be at the cutting-edge of automotive technology, with exciting prospects that will help shape the future use, brand appeal and environmental impact of vehicles amid continued global growth in overall vehicle demand,” said Carlos Ghosn, the company’s President and CEO.

The event coincides with Nissan’s continued execution of ‘Power 88′, the mid-term business plan announced in June 2011, that is targeting 8% global market share and 8% operating margins by the end of fiscal year 2016.

As part of Nissan 360, the company is expected to re-emphasize its ambitions in zero-emission vehicles, where it is the global market leader thanks to the LEAF, the best-selling electric vehicle in history. Nissan has sold more than 74,000 LEAFs, a bigger volume than all other electric vehicle manufacturers combined.

The Nissan LEAF all-electric car will soon be available in Malaysia
