Suffice to say, Nissan is gearing up for a busy 2010.

After spending the better part of last year trying to regain its footing in the auto industry following the inescapable effects of the global financial crisis, Nissan has finally decided to direct its attention and resources on making 2010 the year of the comeback.

In a recent round-table discussion held at the Detroit Auto Show, Nissan America chairman Carlos Tavares laid out the Japanese brand’s bold plans for 2010, including the upcoming release of eight new models for this year.

Among the models Tavares singled out as primed and ready for the production line include the Infiniti M37 six-cylinder and M56- V-8, the Infiniti QX56 SUV, the 40th anniversary model of the Nissan 370Z, the Nissan Juke, the Nissan NV 2500, the Nissan Leaf, the Nissan Quest Minivan, and a still to-be-named Infiniti model, which, according to Tavares is an “all-new derivative model that will feature different powertrain, features and equipment than currently found in whatever model from which it will be derived.”

From the looks of things, the release of these new models in a year’s time gives us an inkling that Nissan just might be ready to get back into the automotive game.

I don’t really know that much of an SUV that comes from Nissan but by the looks of the picture in the blog, it seems like we will be receiving a great treat if it will be available worldwide. It will be a better vehicle.

They will need it to compete with other car manufacturers that have a huge line-up to be released this year. Of course we can’t take Nissan motors for granted on the automobile department where as we all know, the creator of Godzilla and the fab among the coupe, Nissan 370Z.

What’s the name of that car in the picture. It looks dangerous. I mean, it looks like what I see on horror movies wherein ghost cars are the highlights. I think if I have it, I will have every people’s eyes on me.
