Nissan Juke News 

Nissan Juke: Touted as the Urban Proof of the Super minis
Nissan Juke, considered as the most extreme and the smallest member of the Nissan’s range of crossover cars is touted as the “urban proof” among the other super mini cars of today. We have tried to see the car ourselves and had seen it lined up with other four cars occupying the same amount of space fiscally and physically. Nissan Juke

The Cube shares its space with the Juke; the Note is a little different from its siblings known as B-segments; the Thick C Pillar hampers visibility. The scattershot strategy conducted shows that Nissan Juke actually deserves to be called as such.

The Nissan Juke sits on a similar platform like the Cube and Note. The three are all within 155 millimeters of their lengths. The Tiida on the other hand sits on a similar space that is extended and this has also formed Micra’s basis. This gives us the point of view that their corresponding characters make them different from one another.
There was a point in time that the Cube has been described by the car’s designer as a car that seems to stand still even when it’s moving. However, the Nissan Juke’s chest that is puffed out, glass house that seems to look like a turret and rear tail that looks like a boat are enough reasons for this car model to compete with the other larger bullies.

As of this car’s aesthetic appeal, Nissan Juke comes with a terrific appeal at the kerbside, which can never be unmistakable, even in the traffic or even when it is being driven by. The car’s DRG is stratified and its blister lamps fender top is considered as something unique in the see of different cars.

The car’s rear elevation is much better along with its lamp graphics, which emphasize the car’s bustle butt and wide hips. Even the Jude’s lower bumper does not spoil the SUV vibe. Many would claim that this flamboyance level hasn’t been accessed before until now.

Nissan Jude’s center console, which has been “motorcycle inspired” and its driving fin cards for its doors, are definitely positioned in the right lines but they give the feeling of being tokenistic and they can’t be seen when you are driving.

So, for those people out there who are looking for a car, which they can brag to other then the Nissan Jude is a great choice for them.


GM Announces Stoppage of Volt Production

General Motors gives another means to idle some 1,300 workers when everything seems to be brighter for the auto industry. The automaker has announced it will be halting its production of Chevy Volt for five weeks because of low sales.  The shutdown will start from March 19 until April 23 and gave no indication the shutdown will be extended or not. It was relatively a disappointing move as electric cars have been on the showdown and have grabbed the limelight when increased sales and public interest showed signs of hopes.
It was in 2010 when the automaker got the public attention when it launched the Chevy Volt filled with glitters and grandeurs. The Chevy did not perform well in terms of sales and performance when just recently it incurred high fire risk issue. It was a blow dealt with poor sales results.
Chevy Volt is one of the hopefuls among electric cars dealing with the fuel-efficiency issues and auto enthusiasts have put high preference on it but Volts appeal seem to dwindle fast. Observers blamed it to its high price tag and consumers are quick to shift to cheaper brands of the same fuel-efficiency promise. Chevy Volt is placed at high $41,000 and a generous $7,500 tax credit did not boost its appeal.
Volt is not alone in poor sales performance and has Nissan Leaf for a company when the Japanese car only sold 1,154 units a little more down compared to Volts 1,203 units.  Both electric cars have high hopes for 2012 and still hoping to reap the fruit of their hard works in the next quarters of the 2012.
Auto Economist like Lacey Planche is quick to note that Volts poor sales reflect that consumer’s interest and appeal for Volt’s type of car is not that high and results in its failure to lure car enthusiasts to buy it. It could have account to poor marketing and fire risk issues.
Volt is still trying to dispose an oversupply of 6,000 units with 154 units per day that need to be sold. The figure is seen as a big challenge to GM thus the decision to stop production comes as a rescue. But GM is assuring people in the industry that the production will be temporary as GM and all electric car automakers are very hopeful that electric cars is the answer to the continuing gas price hike. GM is committed to make electric cars as the car for the future and it has no intention of backing off.
