Nissan announced Ellure concept for LA debut
The time is ticking by and, sooner rather than later, we should have a good list compiled as to who will be showcasing what at the Paris Auto Show. And while we finish up that list, we have already begun compiling the Los Angeles Auto Show as well. Nissan has announced their lineup for the Los Angeles Auto Show plenty of time before the November show. Under the new logo "Innovation for all," Nissan will be unveiling three new models: the Nissan Ellure concept, which adds a new dimension to traditional sedan design, the Murano CrossCabriolet, and the new Quest. The new Quest and Murano CrossCabriolet are set to go on sale in early 2011.
The Nissan Ellure is a four-door sedan, which according to Nissan, was "designed to bring a higher level of progressive and distinctive expression to the segment."
TheMurano CrossCabriolet is aimed at people who want to feel the wind in their hair and still drive an SUV. It will be the first all-wheel drive crossover convertible and will feature a soft top and two doors. Nissan states that the topless Murano will have room for four adults while still providing appropriate storage space for your luggage, shopping bags, or golf clubs.
Press release after the jump.
“Innovation For All” comes to life November 17th when Nissan rolls out four major product introductions – including three world debuts – at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Leading the way will be the dramatic Nissan Ellure concept, which adds a new dimension to traditional sedan design – a dimension named innovation. The show also marks the return of the Nissan Quest minivan, with its innovative styling and functionality. Breaking new ground in family adventure vehicles is the dramatic Murano CrossCabriolet, a design that shows Nissan’s leadership in design, technology and innovation and truly blows the roof off traditional crossovers. The new Quest and Murano CrossCabriolet are set to go on sale in early 2011. Topping it all off is the first appearance of the production version of the Nissan LEAF™ electric vehicle, which goes on sale in December in select markets. Following are brief overviews of each vehicle.
NOT JUST FOR KIDS. The next-generation Nissan Quest presents a new paradigm in family mobility. Along with top levels of quality and reliability, the all-new design is a fusion of sophistication, security and thoughtful utility for both families and empty nesters alike. The new Quest, which will be available in early 2011, is the perfect vehicle for buyers needing the size, safety, functionality and comfort that a minivan has to offer, without sacrificing style or driving pleasure.
TRANSFORMING EVERYDAY ADVENTURES. Murano CrossCabriolet, the world’s first all-wheel drive crossover convertible, delivers the open-air exhilaration of a convertible while extending the versatility of the Murano in exciting new ways. With room for four adults, space for golf bags or luggage (even with the top down), and a premium level interior, the Murano CrossCabriolet represents a breakthrough in concept and design.
THE SEDAN REIMAGINED. Nissan’s dramatic new-value sedan exploration, the Nissan Ellure, is designed to bring a higher level of progressive and distinctive expression to the segment – adding passion and emotion to traditional sedan efficiency.
