Nissan eco-friendly car in Vehicle Technology

Posted by technologyworth on May 29, 2010

Nissan unveiled its new B-segment eco-friendly car at the Geneva show on March 2nd. As it was already revealed earlier, the new Micra utilizes the new family of inline-3 engines, including the amazing supercharged and direct injection versions that will join in later Motor Vehicle Technology. Right now what is there is the HR12, which produces 80 PS and 108Nm.

The supercharged direct injection model which will come later will be able to make 98 PS and 142Nm. Regarding the transmission, the carmaker says that both engines will be mated to either a 5-speed manual or a new CVT transmission in Motor Vehicle Technology. Although Nissan has been among the many car manufacturers who usually swap out a CVT for a regular 4-speed auto when it comes to Australia, this time around since the new CVT has been touted as one of the main features of the new Micra it’ll most likely make it over here.
