HONG KONG (MarketWatch) -- Nissan Motor Co. (JP:7201:, , ) will cut the weight of its vehicles by an average of 15% over the next seven years as it seeks to improve fuel efficiency, according to reports. The weight reduction will be gauged against the automaker's 2005 model year, the Nikkei business daily reported Wednesday. Nissan will seek to trim the weight by rethinking vehicle design, using light weight materials and encouraging parts suppliers to also pursue the new efficiency targets.

Here at nissansportz, we feel that the combination of reduced weight and larger, more efficient engines can only result in one thing - improved performance, which can only be a good thing

Now a Z weighing less than a Lotus Exige...... :welcome:
