The Nissan AutoMobili-D event was recently held at the North American International Auto Show, also called the Detroit Auto Show. AutoMobili-D was an exposition that is dedicated to the global automotive community, including more than 100 companies and environmental groups. The idea was to develop the next generation of automotive designs, and Nissan hopes to be a major part of that process.

Nissan provided keynote addresses, research, and sponsor events. Recently, Nissan sponsored a live-music event that was entirely power by the Nissan LEAF, demonstrating the potential this new vehicle has. In fact, Nissan is now widely considered the pioneer in the electric vehicle movement.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to show the LEAF-to-Home system at AutoMobili-D,” said Brian Maragno, director, Nissan EV Sales and Marketing. “Nissan has been a pioneer in ‘Vehicle-to-Home’ technology and a leader in its global adoption and we look forward to exploring the potential of this system, as well as the ‘Vehicle-to-Building’ and ‘Vehicle-to-Grid’ solutions in the very near future.”

Nissan is focusing largely on the LEAF-to-Home system in the US, a system that is more popular overseas. This system lets you use the LEAF to power your home like a conventional generator would, except with zero emissions. This is just one step towards true progress, and Nissan is a key part in it.

Valentine’s Day Gifts for Car Lovers

Looking for the perfect gift for Valentine’s Day? It can be difficult to shop for the car lover in your life, which is precisely the reason we’ve provided a list of gifts for car lovers. Whether you’re at the beginning of a relationship or you’ve been married for years, we’ve got some useful recommendations in mind.

According to Safelite, one of the best things to buy for your significant other is a car wash kit. Include things like a chamois cloth, wax, premium wash, and microfiber cloths. These things can help to make your valentine’s ride shine. Also, think about getting alloy or chrome polish as well.

Next, consider buying a night or two at a hotel a few hours away. Car lovers usually love road trips, so this may be the perfect opportunity to drive all day and spend some quality time together. Road trips are great for seeing the world, and when there is no rush it’s nice to enjoy the scenery and stops. Plus, it can be especially romantic around dusk.

Finally, consider a remote car starter. Mornings can be cold, and a car starter is a great way to show consideration. Your loved one can set the controls to warm and start the car from a distance, providing a warm atmosphere as soon as you start driving. Though seemingly small, this gift will show how much you really care.
