21 August 2007

Stop the presses and hold the front page – all future Nissans will now come with a fuel-efficiency gauge as standard.This revolutionary piece of technology – as seen on many BMWs and VWs since at least the 1980s – is being introduced as Nissan attempts to encourage drivers to go green, under the Nissan Green Program 2010.The gauge will provide the driver with both instant fuel-efficiency and average efficiency readings.

While we can’t fault Nissan’s desire to encourage greener driving, we can’t help but feel that reducing weight and making more efficient cars is every bit as important.
