    Nissan Sales Dropped By 50% In October 2019, BS6 Cars Coming Soon

    The Japanese origin carmaker recorded a sale of only 1,433 units in September 2019, which lead to a MoM growth of 10.3 per cent last month. The increase in sales last month as compared could be attributed to the festive season and the offers and discounts the brands were offering in a bid to boost sales during the harsh industry slump.The drop in sales numbers is partly because of the ongoing industry slowdown, and partly because Nissan s lineup needs a revamp. The Micra and Sunny have aged terribly, and will likely not see the light of day post the BS6 deadline next year.

    The creation above may help to persuade some of those in the latter camp, though. It s an all electric Ariel Nomad that was converted by Michigan based parts supplier BorgWarner. If you were to pick any car to provide a sense of fun, the Nomad would be at the top of most lists.BorgWarner actually built the Nomad EV to act as a demonstration vehicle for its new electric powertrain technologies, but it s absolutely something we would love to have a go in.

    Spec-sheet brawl: Mitsubishi Montero Sport vs. Nissan Terra

    Of course, we at Top Gear PH are more than happy to oblige, so we re here to give you what you asked for. Although we only lined up the 4x2 variant of the Terra because Mitsubishi Motors Philippines has yet to bring in the 4WD model of the beloved Montero Sport. Also, since the Toyota Fortuner still hasn t received a proper facelift as of writing, its battle with its biggest rival will have to wait. With those out of the way, let s get to it.The Nissan Terra is relatively a newcomer in the Philippine market, having been introduced only in May 2018. The Mitsubishi Montero Sport, on the other hand, landed on Philippine shores way back in 2005 and has had its fair share of visual changed over the years, some of which stirred quite the debate (yes, we re talking about the teardrop taillights). Nevertheless, in such a stacked segment, both vehicles have proven to be worthy competitors in their own rights.

    Nissan Previews New Compact Crossover for Dealers - The Truth About Cars

    Despite bringing the electric Leaf to market while the rest of the industry was still scratching its head over how to handle EVs, Nissan has since lost its lead.
