Nissan is labelling its most efficient models with a Pure Drive badge from early next year.
The Japanese manufacturer said the Pure Drive badge will allow customers to quickly identify the most efficient models in the Nissan range.
In Europe, Pure Drive badges will be added to the vehicles in Nissan’s range which produce less than 140g/km of CO2:
• Micra 1.2l petrol (MT)
• Micra 1.5l diesel (MT)
• Note 1.4l petrol (MT)
• Note 1.5l diesel (MT)
• Qashqai 1.5l diesel (MT)
• Qashqai+2 1.5l diesel (MT)
In addition, from next month those models fitted with a CVT transmission will be badged with an Xtronic CVT badge:
• Qashqai 2.0l petrol
• Qashqai+2 2.0l petrol
• X-TRAIL 2.0l petrol
• X-TRAIL 2.5l petro
Pierre Loing, Nissan’s European vice president for product planning, said: “In today’s environment, many customers are interested in buying the most efficient cars.
"By introducing the Pure Drive badge, Nissan has made it easy for our customers to identify which cars in our range consume and emit the least carbon dioxide.
“In addition, by including the CVT equipped models in the Qashqai and X-Trail line-ups, we may present them with options they wouldn’t have otherwise considered.”
