Nissan Re-Purchases Its Own 1996 Nissan Maxima

We all know how useful Craigslist can be when it comes to buying and selling items and services at a decent price. It is not uncommon to see ads listing used cars for sale. It is, however, extremely rare that one of these ads would result in an automaker buying back its own vehicle. But then again, Craigslist has never seen an ad accompanied by a video like this.

In his now-viral video ad, Ikonik Films’ Luke Aker gave one heck of a sales pitch for his 1996 Nissan Maxima.

With artistic finesse, he points out the car’s worthy selling points: “Fully loaded with an engine, wheels, tires, and an automatic transmission; a thrilling combination that has lasted over a decade.”

He even goes so far as to say that interested parties “might just qualify for this stunning tour de force of true motoring.”

Nissan was quickly sold; and we at James Ceranti Nissan guess the automaker qualified because they purchased Aker’s now-famous 1996 Nissan Maxima for $1,400.

Nissan is now asking Motor Authority readers what to do with the 17-year-old car.

Nissan Smells a World with Zero Emissions

The Scent of Zero EmissionsCan you imagine what the world would smell like with zero emissions being produced? Nissan is serious about making that future a reality, so the company solicited the expertise of Dr. George Dodd to create a scent that would reflect that futuristic smell.

Dodd, a Master Perfumer and Aroma Academy Scientist, took long walks in the Scottish Highlands to invent the new scent infused with the smells of freshly-cut grass, myrtle oil, natural orange, and the “light as air” molecule.

While the scent hints at the clean future Nissan is seeking to create, it also elicits feelings of nostalgia.

Dodd said of his scent, “This bespoke, futuristic aroma embodies a palate of smell sensations that have never before existed together and represents a future Nissan is helping us drive towards.”

The scent is currently being created as a Christmas gift for LEAF customers and Nissan employees in Europe. It will be featured on a LEAF-shaped car freshener, a thank you for helping a zero emissions future seem closer to a reality.

We at James Ceranti Nissan think this scent may travel to the States eventually, at least we hope so. We can’t wait to smell the future.

Nissan Takes the Autonomous Drive LEAF to the Highway

Autonomous Drive LEAFWith the all-electric LEAF, Nissan became an industry-leader for electric vehicles. Nissan is once again a leader in the automotive world as its all-electric, autonomous LEAF took to Japan’s public highways for the first time last month.

Last year, the Autonomous Drive LEAF was the first vehicle to be issued a Japanese license (meaning we are now one step closer to the inevitable robot takeover), and they have been putting that license to good use ever since.

Not long ago, the fully-autonomous vehicle took Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, for a drive around the National Diet Front Garden.

Several days ago, the LEAF drove Kanagawa prefecture’s governor, Yuji Kuroiwa, on the Sagami Expressway near the “Sagami Robot Industry Special Zone.” The setting was fitting as other advanced-technology projects are being developed and tested in the area.

The vehicle merged onto the highway and reached speeds of 80 kilometers, which is about 50 miles per hour, passing slower moving cars.

The success of this test drive is further evidence of how close Nissan is to reaching its goal of bringing a fully autonomous vehicle to market in 2020.

What do you think about owning Nissan’s fully autonomous vehicle in the near future? Let us at James Ceranti Nissan know in the comments below.
