To the UK, that is…
The Nissan Murano has been on sale in the UK since 2004, which isn’t anything new, but for the first time this year the Nissan Murano will have a Diesel Engine option!
We all know about the EU’s intense Euro5 emissions standards, and Nissan’s diesel engine will help the Murano keep its act in-line with them. The new Diesel Engine will get the Murano around 35.3 miles to the gallon and 210g/km CO2 emissions, which is much better than the gasoline engine.
The UK’s Nissan Murano – Diesel, will go on sale for about $57,781.
General Motors has opened a new design studio in Seoul, South Korea, this past Wednesday, April 20, 2010. This will be GM’s tenth global design studio, to date, and will be responsible for creating mini and small vehicles to be sold around the world. There will be over thirty designers at the Seoul Advanced Design studio working diligently to create new concept vehicles for GM world-wide.
As time goes by, I believe that this design studio will become a crucial part of GM as the United States, and the World, enforces more strict fuel-efficiency and emissions standards. Soon, more and more people will be driving mini or small vehicles in order to comply with fuel-efficiency and emissions standards, and this GM design studio will be one of the major players contributing to the designs of those vehicles.
