Star Wars Special Edition Rogue Arriving Soon at a Galaxy Not So Far Away

Star Wars Special Edition Rogue
In preparation for the upcoming Star Wars movie, Nissan has teamed up with the popular sci-fi franchise to create the Star Wars special edition Rogue.

The world has gone crazy with Star Wars fever—and we at Tom Naquin Automotive are sharing that madness! We loved The Force Awakens and we can’t wait until Rogue One comes out next month.

For those of us who can’t get enough Star Wars, Nissan is using its partnership with the popular sci-fi franchise to promote the redesigned Rogue SUV—and offer fans some exciting things in the process.

Having undergone a few exterior design changes, the Nissan Rogue will be receiving a Star Wars-themed special edition available in limited quantities. The 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition will be revealed at the LA Auto Show and will go on sale shortly after. If you want to see the Rogue in action, Nissan has also released an exciting trailer of the SUV in action—right in the middle of an epic Star Wars battle.

As an additional incentive to give in and buy a Star Wars special edition Rogue, Nissan will be including a full-size replica death trooper helmet for fans that enjoy “grown-up” toys.

To get in on this action, make sure you follow the LA Auto Show and enter the automaker’s Ultimate Access Sweepstakes in the meantime.

Renault Nissan Hits 350,000 EV Milestone, Making It the Leading EV Seller in the World

Leading EV Seller in the World
Renault Nissan has hit a milestone of 350,000 electric vehicles sold, holding its position as the leading EV seller in the world.

Renault Nissan has hit a milestone of 350,000 electric vehicles sold with its popular LEAF and other electric vehicles, holding its position as the leading EV seller in the world. August also marked an important milestone for the company, when it sold 100,000 vehicles in a single year, a new record for EVs.

More than 230,000 LEAFs have been sold since it was introduced in 2010, making it the most popular electric car in the world. Renault is also the best-selling EV brand in Europe and recently delivered its 100,000th electric vehicle to a customer in Norway in person.

The Renault-Nissan partnership is the only auto group in the world that sells a wide range of electric vehicles, including the LEAF and several others like the e-NV200, a commercial vehicle that is mostly used in Europe and Japan. Renault sells four EVs of its own: the ZOE, the Kangoo Z.E. van, the SM3 Z.E. sedan, and the Twizy, which is a two-seater used for city commutes.

Renault Nissan continues to innovate and push for better range and safety, setting its eventual dual goal as an entire lineup of cars with “zero emissions and zero fatalities.” In recent years Renault Nissan has dramatically improved the range of all its vehicles as well as developing advanced driver assist technologies.

Finding the perfect vehicle for the entire family can be quite difficult. That is, unless you choose a Nissan vehicle. The Nissan family of vehicles has a number of different models that are perfect for your family. One of those models has recently been granted several prestigious titles for the benefits it provides to families on the road.

According to a Nissan press release, the 2016 Nissan Murano was named a top family car by both Parents magazine and Edmunds.

The Nissan Murano was selected by both groups as one of their Top 10 Family Cars of 2016.

Not only is the Nissan Murano affordable for families, but it also comes packed with a number of desirable features. For example, the Nissan Murano’s cabin is designed to cancel out excess noise from the outside, creating peaceful surroundings.

“The redesigned Murano has terrific passenger and cargo space, including comfy contoured rear seats that kids – and even Adults – will appreciate,” says Parents Editor-in-Chief Dana Points. “Plus its utter lack of cabin noise ensures that kids can nap undisturbed on long drives.”
