Nissan at the Tokyo Motor Show 2009 news - Lean machine - 2009

If you’ve been wondering
what Nissan has up its sleeve for the upcoming Tokyo show, your wait is over.
All is revealed.

We’ve already seen the Leaf all-electric vehicle - the first electro-car
for normal people who like normal cars with four doors and a hatchback. That
will be there looking all glittery under the spotlights ahead of its launch
next year.

Next to that is something called a Land Glider - an ultra-slim, electric,
tilting thing that looks like cross between the VW L1 concept and that crazy
Dutch Carver  - designed to solve all our urban mobility problems. We find
that ‘walking’ is also pretty effective.

We’re also expecting some more news on the new Micra that we showed you last week. Then there’s the Qazana, which we saw at Geneva earlier this year. It’s a
jacked-up five-door hatch, designed to slot somewhere between the ‘B’ and ‘C’
segment, so that’s in between a Mini and a Qashqai (it could steal sales from
both). It will be made in Britain from early next year, at the firm’s
Sunderland plant, where the tea and biscuits are being restocked as we speak.
