With strong sales growth, a new plant, an expanding dealer network, and the Rio 2016™ Olympics and Paralympic games sponsorship around the corner, Nissan today reaffirmed Brazil as an important strategic market. The company will display innovative products at the 27th São Paulo International Motor Show that demonstrate a deep relationship with Brazil.
Nissan EXTREM, the first concept car designed for and produced in Brazil, reflects the country's cultural influences. The Nissan booth will feature the all-new Nissan Altima, a model that will be sold locally next year. Visitors will also have the opportunity to see the technology on the Nissan LEAF Taxi, one of the units participating in a pilot project in São Paulo that aims to understand the infrastructure needs for EVs to become popular in the near future.
To celebrate important milestones of Nissan's activity in Brazil, two new models will be officially presented at the motor show:
- Frontier "10 Years," a special edition pickup truck that celebrates the first decade of Nissan's production in Brazil.
- Nissan March "Rio 2016," a limited edition model related to Nissan's sponsorship of the Olympic and Paralympic Games 2016, two major sports events which Nissan Brazil will host in the coming years.
Additionally, the entire line-up of Nissan products sold in Brazil will be at the motor show: Tiida Family (Tiida Sedan and Tiida Hatchback), Livina Family (Livina, Livina X-Gear and Grand Livina with Grand Livina suited for wheelchair users), Sentra Special Edition, and Versa (the first Japanese compact sedan offered in the Brazilian market).
