Nissan announces the All-New Serena Minivan with a 25% improvement in fuel economy
Nissan today announced the launch of the all-new Nissan Serena minivan. The all-new Serena, with its advanced interior spaciousness, user-friendliness and Serena DNA, now adds best-in-class fuel economy of 15.4km/L to its long list of attributes. Serena is equipped with Nissan’s new Idling Stop system, which adopts an ECO motor that restarts the engine and also serves as an alternator during deceleration. The engine restarts quicker and is quieter with ECO motor, providing a natural driving feel and enhanced interior comfort
Equipped with a newly developed direct-injection engine with Xtronic CVT, the new Serena achieves both a 25% improvement in fuel economy over 2010 standards and SU-LEV certification, emitting 75% fewer exhaust emissions than 2005 standards in every grade. This qualifies the vehicle for the tax exemption for environmentally friendly vehicles, which provides for a 75% reduction of both new vehicle acquisition and weight taxes.
Since its launch in June 1991 through the current third-generation model, Nissan Serena has been acclaimed by customers, especially families, for its roomy comfortable cabin, great drivability and versatile seat configurability. It has achieved the No.1 position in minivan sales for three consecutive years, from 2007 to 2009. The All-New Serena Minivan goes on sale November 29th at Nissan dealers in Japan.
