Nissan offers Vitamin C Enriched Cars

Nissan – the Japanese car maker has announced about its working on the idea of “Health and Well-Being” to make it a healthier and safer experience for people driving in one of their cars.

There has been some thought that has gone into making just good old driving a special “experience” here.  Nissan is working on getting vitamin C enriched breathable air pumped into the automobile enclosure by the air-conditioning system to aid in keeping the occupants’ skin supple and feeling fresh.  This out of the box thinking from Nissan has brought in a lot of accolades as well as some critique.

Who wouldn’t want to prevent their elbows and skin going dry after driving around in an air-conditioned car over long drives?  Conversely, having your skin moisturized, without even actually having to do so seems like the perfect answer to most people’s problems.  Driving or even just traveling in a car manufactured by Nissan from now on would become a wholly new and fresh-feeling experience.

The “experience” is administered by a plasma cluster ion generator installed to control the filtering of air through the climate control system within the car.  The next generation system of climate control will not only filter the air within but also from outside the car as well as pump in vitamin C which is so essential for keeping skin moisturized and feeling soft and supple.

The plasma cluster ions assist in the reduction of mold intensity and also reduces bacteria that are airborne besides assisting in neutralizing microbe carrying allergens in the air and ticks.  These ions are also effective in controlling odors.

The system is geared to be able to sense different odors – like those of decay and industrial discharge – and mechanically toggle the airing system as necessary.

Along with these vitamin C enriched air circulation, Nissan is also aiming at helping at reducing stress on feet and legs of long distance drivers by installing specially designed heated ergonomic seats with multi-layered cushion pads to help keep both the driver and passengers comfortable for those going on long drives.  These chairs help considerably reduce back ache and also facilitate blood circulation and have been developed as a result undertaken by NASA.

Nissan is striving to make drivers feel safer, healthier and more comfortable within the car than out of it.  The new vitamin C spraying air-conditioners and air purifiers specially manufactured by Sharp, are bound to go a great way in increasing awareness among automobile owners that are health conscious.

With the increase in competition between automobile manufacturers, this value addition to the car market from Nissan brings with it a new way of looking to make their automobiles different from those produced by the rest of the car manufacturers.

Toyota Prius Best Selling Car in Japan Again

This is the 14th month in the running for the Toyota Prius to be declared the best selling car in Japan.  Sales of this hybrid car in its third generation maxed 31,876 units in June and the Prius has been maintaining its first position for the last 14 months.  Worldwide sales have reached 1.79 million and the Prius is currently the top selling hybrid to hit the global car market.

If the waiting lists for the Toyota Prius are to be believed, the demand is far greater than the rate of supply in Japan.  The waiting period is as high as three months.  There was a brief period in 2009 when the top position of the Prius (at the time in its second generation) was usurped by the launch of the Honda Insight.  The Prius was introduced in 1997 and since the launch of the third generation, it has taken over the first position in the highest sales of its units and it seems like it is here to stay for a long time to come, with its never ending waiting lists.

The Toyota Prius has won the highest award against its rival the Honda Insight at the New York Auto Show, and in Japan, has also been declared the Car of the Year 2010.  The car has a 37 HP electric motor running in the Atkinson cycle and an engine with a 99 HP running at 5,200 rpm with a 105 lb-ft at 4,000 torque.

One of the reasons attributed to its high sales is the tax breaks and the special subsidy given by the Japanese government for cars that are environmentally friendly.  Japanese customers also are leaning towards buying hybrid vehicles over the others, which is helping boost sales of the Toyota Prius.

There were some issues over quality with Toyota in Japan recalling almost 92,000 units of its Crown and Lexus models since October.  Some Prius units too were recalled for issues relating to braking software problems, sticking gas pedals and floor mats that were defective.  In spite of things looking bleak, Toyota is feeling optimistic with the high demand for the Prius and is looking forward to a long stint in the market for hybrid cars.

If you are looking for a new or used Toyota Prius, please get in touch with your requirements.  We feel it would be a great investment not only for yourself but for contributing to pollution free society.
