Nissan is always making strides to be energy efficient and help out the environment. From creating all-electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf to using efficient technologies like LED lighting, Nissan is making their vehicles more eco-friendly. Nissan is also making their operations eco-friendlier. Because of this, the US Environmental Protection Agency is giving Nissan the 2018 Energy Star Partner of the Year Sustained Excellence Award.
Globe Newswire explains the award further, “The 2018 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Awards are bestowed upon companies and other organizations demonstrating continued leadership in energy efficiency and commitment to the ENERGY STAR program. Winners hail from small, family-owned businesses to Fortune 500 organizations – representing energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial and public sectors.”
However, this isn’t the first year the EPA has recognized Nissan’s efforts. This is the seventh consecutive year that the EPA has awarded Nissan for their commitment to improving energy management.
What has Nissan done to receive this energy star award? This award goes to companies that make their operations more energy efficient, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and educate about energy.
According to Globe Newswire, “Nissan’s efforts to reduce energy usage include switching to more efficient technologies like LED lighting, engaging all employees in energy management, and including energy efficiency in design, such as an environmentally friendly paint process that has cut energy usage by more than 30%.”
If environmental issues are important to you, take notice of the steps Nissan has taken to improve its vehicles and operations to make them more energy efficient. You can also upgrade to a Nissan and help the environment out as well. The Nissan Leaf is an all-electric vehicle, so it is not gasoline-powered. It helps reduce the harmful emissions produced by vehicles.

Crossovers and SUVs are really popular these days among consumers. People like the versatility that comes with a crossover. These vehicles give you space for passengers and cargo, towing and hauling capability and a fun driving experience.
On the other hand, electric vehicles like the Nissan Leaf are also growing in popularity. That is why Nissan is working to produce an all-electric SUV.
According to Electrek, Nissan’s all-electric crossover “was unveiled in October last year and Nissan claims that the concept is powered by two “high-output electric motors” at the front and rear, enabling all-wheel-drive. The dual motors have a combined power output of 320 kW and 700 Nm of torque.”
The Head of Nissan Design in Europe is Mamoru Aoki, and he says that this crossover will be in production in a couple of years. It will be based on the IMx concept that has been shown.
But what will this all-electric crossover look like on the inside?
According to Electrek, Aoki also said, “The interior is notably bigger than with a conventional vehicle and there’s much more usable space, thanks to the totally flat floor allowed by the [underfloor] battery pack. The dashboard is also pushed right back [towards the windscreen] because the HVAC [heating, ventilation and air-con] unit is under the bonnet.”
What do you think? Are you ready for an all-electric crossover? It might be time to get ready because Nissan is getting ready to build you one. The IMx concept should be a pretty new vehicle, and while it won’t come out for a few years, it is definitely something to keep on your radar.

Are you trying to take better care of the environment? Nissan definitely is. For a while now, the Nissan Leaf has been a popular Electric Vehicle that many people are excited about because it is eco-friendlier. Now, Nissan is thinking ahead about how to reuse old Nissan Leaf batteries instead of having them go to waste.
According to Engadget, “Nissan is using old Leaf batteries in a very meta way: To power streetlights that will make roads safer for vehicles and pedestrians. Called ‘The Light Reborn,’ it uses a solar panel that charges up a battery, which can then power the LED at night with no external connection required.”
The streetlight powering project isn’t officially up and running yet, but they are doing some tests to see how well this project is getting along. The tests will occur in Namie, Japan, which was abandoned after the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
Powering streetlights is a great way to utilize old batteries. However, you may be wondering, do these batteries have other possible uses? It turns out they do!
Nissan has been working up ideas for their old batteries for a while, but the street lights is a new option for them. Other plans and ideas they have for these old batteries are for buildings and homes that use wind or solar energy. These batteries would store energy and release it in the event of a power outage.
Engagdet also explains some of the other ideas for old Nissan Leaf batteries, “Another is to use the batteries for ‘smart booths’ that could power cellphones and other devices. Finally, Nissan unveiled a whimsical scheme, ‘a park converting the bursting energy of children into electricity while they play. Children’s energy during the day keeps the park bright and safe at nighttime.’
There are many great reasons to buy a Nissan. One of those reasons is how eco-friendly these vehicles and the company can be. We can’t wait to see what other ideas Nissan comes up with to reuse materials.
