On a strength of Intelligent Mobility, we are conceptualizing cars that emanate a softened destiny for personal transportation, like a Nissan IDS Concept.
Making a Chinese entrance here in Beijing, a Nissan IDS Concept delivers a 3 pivotal elements of Nissan Intelligent Mobility: Intelligent Power, Intelligent Driving and Intelligent Integration.
Let me start with a initial element:
Nissan Intelligent Power where we are investing in expostulate and powertrain technologies that guarantee a cleaner universe and increasing pushing pleasure.

Here in China, we will foster “Nissan Intelligent Mobility” and associated technologies underneath a clever partnership with Ching-hua University.
Now, let me give we another explanation indicate and uncover we how we are scheming for an sparkling future.
In 2005, when a first-generation Tiida was introduced in China, it redefined a compress hatchback market.
Since then, Tiida has left from strength to strength, interjection to a partner Dongfeng Group.
Together, we have combined a automobile that appeals to a immature and energetic person.
