Nissan turns 90 this year. It was founded on December 26, 1933, when Tobata Casting and Nihon Sangyo merged. Although the company’s roots are even deeper: back in 1911, Japanese engineer Masujiro Nashimoto built the first Japanese DAT car. This name subsequently turned into the Datsun brand, well-known all over the world, under which even repainted Lada models were produced in the XXI century. Datsun became part of Nissan by Tobata Casting.
Nissan decided to celebrate such a significant date in its history by releasing five special versions for the home market. The memorable “90th Anniversary” performance is due to the Nissan Sakura electric key car, Leaf hatchback, Note and Note Aura hybrid minivans, as well as the Serena hybrid minivan. As you can see, the anniversary versions rely only on electrified cars, emphasizing the company’s current agenda.
All commemorative cars have noticeable bronze accents in the exterior and interior decoration. In addition, the distinctive features are the black bodies of the side rear-view mirrors and the black wheels, which are unique for each model. The Sakura, Note and Note Aura models also rely on finishing the seats with a special leatherette with a “nappa effect”. Body stickers, rubber mats and license plate frames with the inscription “90th Anniversary” are available for ordering directly from dealers.
