Nissan is one automaker striving to reduce CO2 emissions. The Nissan Leaf is a great example of the effort they’ve put forward. Something else you may have heard of is Nissan Pure Drive, which is another example of Nissan taking initiative to make a difference when it comes to emissions from its model lineup. Even if you have heard of Pure Drive you may not know what exactly that means. So, what is Nissan Pure Drive? We’ll go over what the Pure Drive badge is and what it means so you have a better understanding of the efficiency of Nissan vehicles.
The Pure Drive badge can be found on a select group of Nissan vehicles designed to produce lower levels of CO2 emissions. Pure Drive technology both lowers emissions and improves fuel efficiency. Pure Drive combines elements of energy loss reduction, efficient engine operation, supercharger application, and more. For instance, a stop/start system, one that stops the engine when the vehicle is at a standstill, is one feature that is found on some Pure Drive vehicles. Other features like ECO mode and an ECO pedal are also found in these models. Nissan is continuously working to improve these types of technologies, but it is a step in the right direction
For now, we have an impressive group of vehicles utilizing efficient technologies like those above, therefore reducing the emissions each vehicle puts out while simultaneously providing incredible fuel economy ratings. Not all Nissan vehicles have the Pure Drive badge.
Pure Drive covers the Altima, Sentra, Versa, Versa Note, Juke and Rogue from select model years.
