Nissan is already known worldwide for their bold, consistently reliable automobiles, and now the automaker has added another product to their lineup, by creating the first ever seven-seat bobsleigh.

The Nissan seven-seat bobsleigh was inspired by the seven-seat X-Trail SUV, which goes by the Nissan Rogue in U.S. markets. Fittingly, the bobsleigh is being called the X-Trail Bobsleigh, after the vehicle.

The model made its first ever run at an Austrians Olympic track, led by British Olympic medalist Sean Olsson. A video of the historic moment can be watched here, thanks to Nissan Europe’s YouTube channel.

Though it takes some time to get there, the X-Trail Bobsleigh can eventually reach speeds of up to 65 mph, without an engine. This carefully crafted machine can get there based purely on gravity.

Check out the Nissan seven-seat bobsleigh, and let us know what you think! And of course, if you’re in the market for a new, regular automobile, visit us anytime at Lancaster Nissan of Lancaster, PA.

2017 Nissan JUKE Goes Green

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

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.

We here at Lancaster Nissan of Lancaster, PA can’t wait to see just what the Nissan JUKE has in store for us!
