The Nissan JUKE just got even better – glow-in-the-dark Nissan JUKE!

A special version of the Nissan JUKE recently made an appearance in Melbourne, Australia much to the excitement of several local artists. In fact, this JUKE was glow-in-the-dark. You heard right. Nissan recently developed two models wrapped in a special skin, a distinct look that served as a canvas for a range of street artists.

According to Nissan, the glow-in-the-dark Nissan JUKE caused quite a stir at the White Night celebrations, a festival in Melbourne dedicated to local street artists. The JUKE models served as a canvas for artists to add black paint to, demonstrating their impressive talent. Onlookers could join in or simply watch, creating a unique collaborative atmosphere.

“Our initial impression when we saw the JUKE was it had snake-like characteristics,” said Josh Meyer and Josh Brown, local artists. “The grill, headlights and long smooth lines resonated immediately with us. We decided to create a series of snakes that traced the shapes and features of the JUKE. We utilized negative space, so that the snakes were glowing, and everything else would be blacked out.”

The two cars were turned into separate designs, “Snake Wrap” by Meyer and Brown, as well as “Journey to the West” by Chris Le. These distinct designs were on display throughout the festival, and they may just make a tour later in the year. Nissan has supported the Melbourne festival since 2013, and plans on continuing its unique sponsorship.

With how incredible the 2015 Nissan JUKE is, we cannot wait to see the 2017 Nissan JUKE!

The Nissan JUKE is one of the most uniquely styled crossovers on the market and the small crossover is about to inspire disbelief yet again. The first generation Nissan JUKE kicked off Nissan’s crossover sales and now, with the second generation on the way, it’s looking for a new way to beat the competition. The latest rumor on the mill is that the 2017 Nissan JUKE will receive an even greener powertrain.

The Japanese automaker is keeping their lips sealed but a green powertrain certainly isn’t unlikely. The Nissan LEAF®, the most popular electric vehicle in the world, boasts a battery pack and electric motor that could power the Nissan JUKE.

The Nissan JUKE currently stands on its own tires with a 1.6L turbocharged engine that packs 217 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque. The Nissan LEAF®’s powertrain is comparable with 107 hp and 187 lb-ft of torque. Either way, the 2017 Nissan JUKE will likely have a variety of engines to choose from.

Still, Nissan is a tricky automaker to decipher. For now, they seem to be keeping everything to themselves when it comes to the second generation Nissan JUKE.
