All-new Nissan Note debuts in Japan

Nissan has launched the 2021 Note compact car in Japan, with sales planned to begin December 23.

The all-new Note will come exclusively with Nissan’s e-Power electrified powertrain. As the company’s best-selling model in its home market, the car continues to play a key role in the Nissan NEXT global business transformation plan.

The Note showcases Nissan’s latest design concept, Timeless Japanese Futurism. The simple, yet powerfully modern and distinctive Japanese approach sets the Note apart from other compact cars.

Nissan’s signature V-motion grille crowns the exterior, forming a strong V-line under the slim-line headlamps. Character lines extend from the front, carving the side profile and transitioning through the slim, horizontally continuous rear combination lamps. The overall impression is one of advanced, simple and dynamic design for the electrified age.

The front grille pattern draws from traditional Japanese design, conveying an artisan touch. Bookending the grille are sleek headlights featuring four in-line LED projector lights, keeping the front sharp and sporty.

Sixteen-inch aluminum wheels, with an inner design reminiscent of a sword blade, complete the all-new Note’s agile look.

The model comes with 13 available body color variations, including two two-tone options and an eye-catching Vivid Blue. Also available is the new color Opera Mauve, specially created for the Note.

The new Note defies preconceptions about compact car interiors by minimizing the footprint of components while increasing comfort and technology. The center console is positioned for easy access to the downsized electronic shift lever and opens space below it.

Zero Gravity seats and large armrests offer enhanced comfort on long-distance trips. In the rear, the space far exceeds segment norms, with plenty of headroom and legroom as well as reclining seatbacks. The rear hatch has a wide opening to a spacious trunk, making loading and unloading an easier experience.

State-of-the-art technology ensures information is readily available at a glance. Upon entry, the driver is greeted by the large integrated display interface that links vehicle information and navigation details in a seamless landscape orientation. Digital gauge displays keep information clear and easy to read. The center console offers wireless charging, embracing the connected, digital age.

The all-new Note represents the nameplate’s third generation. The completely new platform and design give it a fresh, advanced impression.

The new Note also features the second generation of Nissan’s acclaimed e-Power electric powertrain. Extensively redesigned and redeveloped, the system produces more power, a higher-quality driving experience and improved efficiency. It represents a step-change in performance, with responsive acceleration, smooth deceleration and quietness that only an electrified powertrain can deliver.

The new Note will also feature a truly electric all-wheel drive model, with powerful dual electric motors in the front and rear supplying power to all four wheels. The AWD model is scheduled for launch in December.

The new Note’s advanced safety technology offers 360 degrees of coverage to give drivers added assistance and peace of mind on the road. Drivers can enjoy Nissan’s ProPILOT with Navi-link, which syncs with the navigation system on highways and detects speed limit signs to automatically adjust the set speed. The system also uses navigation data to assess the angle of upcoming bends and decelerate the vehicle accordingly.

As a first for Nissan, 1,470 MPa ultra-high tensile steel has been adopted in the vehicle chassis, contributing to both weight reduction and improved passive safety performance.

Local pricing will start at 2,029,500 yen ($19,510 at current exchange rates) for the entry-level S, including the consumption tax. The mid-range F grade will be available from 2,054,800 ($19,753) and the X will set buyers back at least 2,186,800 ($21,022).
