Tokyo Motor Show 2017 – press conference remarks from Daniele Schillaci, EVP

Schillaci:

What you just heard was the sound of the future. It is a sound that we call “Canto.” Soon, it will be heard from our Nissan cars on streets around the world. It’s what the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility will sound like.Last month, we introduced the new Nissan LEAF. It is the icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility, our vision to move people to a better world. I said then that the new Nissan LEAF is not an EV, because EV technology alone is not enough to move people to a better world.For that, you need a bigger vision for the future. That’s what Nissan Intelligent Mobility is all about.

The early customer response to the new Nissan LEAF has been very strong. In just one month, we have already sold more than half of what we sold last year. But the new Nissan LEAF is only the latest chapter in the ongoing story of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.

Last year, here in Japan, we introduced e-POWER technology on the Nissan Note. It achieved the top sales category in the first half of 2017. As a result of this strong customer acceptance, we will be expanding e-POWER to other markets and models.

We will start by launching the Nissan Serena e-POWER here in Japan this spring. The new Nissan Serena has already showed great success with the introduction of ProPILOT, our first step in autonomous drive technology. The Serena is already known for its spacious interior and smooth ride. By combining it with e-POWER, it will also offer the excitement and efficiency of an EV and become another icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.

A few minutes ago, you heard what the future of Nissan Intelligent Mobility will sound like. Now, let me show you what it will look like…

Please welcome the Nissan IMx zero-emission concept.
