Nissan Takes Innovation from Land to Sea
With models like the Nissan LEAF, it's easy to see that our favorite automaker is dedicated to the environment. But Garland Nissan would like to take a moment and look beyond the widely-praised EV forerunner. The truth of the matter is that when it comes to saving the earth, automobiles aren't the only ones leaving behind a messy trail. That's why Nissan made it a company mission to bring eco-friendly innovation to many facets of life. Most recently, that includes the sea.
In order to "green up" the transportation of vehicles, Nissan has built a 21,000 ton cargo ship that's more efficient than anything else out there. Aerodynamically designed and creatively constructed, "The City of St. Petersburg" can haul up to 2,000 new Nissan models at a time. More specifically, company officials say that the ship will carry its bounty of automotive treasures from manufacturing plants in the UK and Spain to parts of Northern Europe and Russia.
Built under the automaker's "Innovation for the Planet" banner, the ultra-efficient cargo ship is a prime example of what is to come. No, we aren't saying that Nissan will abandon its automotive expertise in exchange for a more nautical persona. We simply mean that, heading into the future, consumers can expect the unexpected from the brand. To keep up with all Nissan advancements, be sure to pay attention to our Garland Nissan blog.
