  • Nissan Altima-te AWD sedan with tracks

    Following a tradition that's dated back four years, Nissan has put another one of its vehicles on snow tracks. Meet the Altima-te AWD, a funny play on the word "ultimate" using the popular Altima nameplate. Nissan revealed the modified 2019 Altima on Thursday as the next vehicle to join the "Warrior" ranks. Previous entries to receive the wild treatment include the Juke, Rogue, Pathfinder, and 370Z. The Altima as the latest Warrior makes a lot of sense. The redesigned 2019 model is the first time Nissan has outfitted the sedan with all-wheel drive, and the brand plans to parade the Altima-te...

  • Nissan's new Altima, in V8 Supercar trim

    Though the Australian V8 Supercar Series and our own NASCAR series are radically different forms of racing, the two series share more than a few common elements. Both base racing cars on popular production sedans, both rely on highly-tuned V-8 engines for power and both use a front-engine, rear-drive layout. Like our own NASCAR Sprint Cup series, the V8 Supercar Series once frowned on foreign automakers, but times are changing. Just as NASCAR begrudgingly let Toyota compete in Sprint Cup racing beginning in 2007, the V8 Supercar Series will admit both Nissan and Mercedes-Benz for 2013...

    It's a rare thing to remark on the government's hesitation to spend money these days, but that's precisely the case of the U.S. Department of Energy's Advanced Technology Vehicles Manufacturing Incentive Program. The government set aside $25 billion to fund the program last year, but to date, hasn't handed out any of the money. The advanced tech that's being sought after is wide and varied, but first and foremost are hybrid and electric vehicle technologies. Lachlan Seward, the government official in charge of disbursing the funds says it's due to a desire to be 'responsible'. But today...
