HONG KONG, China (March 10, 2014) – Nissan is ready to shake up the 13th Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2014).
Auto China 2014 runs from April 20 (press day) to April 29 at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing. Nissan (China) Investment Co., Ltd. (NCIC), in cooperation with Dongfeng Nissan Passenger Vehicle Company (DFL-PV) and Zhengzhou Nissan Automobile Co., Ltd. (ZNA), will present an exciting line-up of more than 20 vehicles at Asia's largest motor show of the year.
The star of the show will be a new sedan concept which will make its world premiere. Also featured will be the BladeGlider concept, making its Chinese debut, and Nissan's latest global innovations, including the Autonomous Drive car.
Teana, Nissan's flagship sedan, celebrates its 10th anniversary in China this year and a special edition Teana will be on display. The two latest introductions, the all-new X-Trail and the new NV200 Xtronic® transmission, are expected to draw attention from booth visitors.
Nissan will deliver to Auto China 2014 a further-evolved global motor show booth with a distinctive three-layer theater style. During public viewing days, visitors will be able to experience new interactive communications through "Augmented Reality" technology.
New Sedan Concept Last year at Auto Shanghai 2013, Nissan unveiled the Friend-ME concept, attracting attention from both the media and the Chinese "Post-80s" generation through its provocative design and connectivity features. This year at Auto China 2014, Nissan will reveal a new sedan concept for the Chinese digital lifestyle. The concept expresses Nissan's passion and focus in the world's most dynamic auto market.
Subsequent to Friend-ME in 2013, this concept car will be the second time for Nissan Design China (NDC), Nissan's newest global design center located in Beijing, to realize a concept car design in collaboration with the Nissan Global Design Center (NGDC) under the leadership and direction of Nissan Senior Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Shiro Nakamura.
BladeGlider Concept BladeGlider redefines the driving experience with a unique center seat driver position, giving drivers and passengers alike a sense of automotive gliding. Highly aerodynamic, the narrow front and stable rear track reduce drag while generating downforce. The result is a powerful combination of road-hugging agility and hyper-efficiency. Heralded by global media as "cutting edge" and "awesome," BladeGlider will make its local debut at Auto China 2014.
Autonomous Drive Car Nissan revealed the autonomous driving technology in August 2013 when the company committed to being ready with multiple, commercially viable Autonomous Drive cars by 2020. The system will be deployed across the model range within two vehicle generations. Nissan's Autonomous Drive technology is an extension of its Safety Shield, which monitors a 360-degree view around a vehicle for risks, offers warnings to the driver and takes action if necessary.
Teana 10th Anniversary Special Edition Celebrating the 10th anniversary of Teana in China, a special edition of Nissan's global flagship sedan will be revealed at Auto China 2014. Teana has been leading the premium sedan segment in China, thanks to its class-above driving experience, combining comfort and agility.
All-New X-Trail Following a successful unveil in China last month, the all-new X-Trail will be available for sale in late March and is expected to lead the growing SUV segment in China. Featuring a large console box for gear and flexible seating that can be configured in several ways to best accommodate cargo and passengers, X-Trail is spacious and user-friendly. Its spinal support seats are first in class, as are the Active Trace Control and 4x4i drive system, with Hill Start Assist, Advance Hill Descent Control and Yaw Moment Control.
NV200 Xtronic® transmission Growing in popularity since its launch earlier this year to the worldwide taxi industry including New York and London, Nissan will showcase the innovative NV200 Xtronic® transmission at Beijing. Just launched in China in late February, the model is equipped with the innovative Xtronic® transmission system which reduces noise levels and fuel consumption, delivering benefits for drivers, passengers and the environment alike.

Nissan please give us the RS16 NOW!
They can't ever top the RS13. It was so good they had to make it for 10 years but kept it to themselves for the last 5.
25 years old and it's still 15th in this list. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Automobile_drag_coefficient#Drag_area 5.88 sq-ft 0.546 m² 1990 Nissan 240SX / 200SX / 180SX 4 of those cars are unobtainable - 5 if you count the 2000GT.
Hatchback practicality, Fastback Coupe style, reasonable costs and at least in Europe adequate 140mph / 7sec 0-60mph pace with 170bhp [1]. Japan had 112mph/180Kph limiters but from '91 on 202bhp so about 6.5sec 0-60mph.
[1] And a 9.5m turning circle = big yaw angle without touching the lock stops.

Yep, a great car! I've got a 1994 model 200sx, the last of the hatchback version, which I've had since 1998. The same shape and colour as the Wikipedia image: <http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/b/b3/Red_240SX_II.j pg/280px-Red_240SX_II.jpg> :-)
I often get offers from people who want to buy it, but I have no plans to sell it since there's nothing around these days that is remotely good enough to replace it (at least not at a sensible price). The closest might be the new Toyota 86 / Subaru BRZ, but I haven't driven one of those.
The next two 200sx models were rather ugly. and lost the hatchback :-( even though for some peculiar reason they did keep the hatchback / pop-up lights shape for the 180sx for much longer.
The final 200sx model was better looking (still not a hatchback though), but had a pointless silly dial on the driver's side window pillar.
Thankfully they cancelled the rumoured "new 200sx" that was going to be a silly 2 seater roadster to compete against the Mazda MX-5, but we still need a proper new 200sx (2+2, front-engined, rear-wheel drive sports coupe to be released).
The only problem with the 200sx / Silvia was that it was that here in New Zealand it was consistently in the Top Ten Most Stolen Cars list (some years it was there twice, under both the 200sx and Silvia nameplates). It was only a couple of years ago that it finally dropped out of the Top Ten.
