  1. With new e-powertrain. Wonder if / when it will come to UK... http://i2.cmail20.com/ei/y/E8/978/D84/115135/csfinal/201124-01_mail-9900000000079e3c.jpg Nissan launches all-new Note in Japan Offered exclusively with an electrified powertrain, the new Note demonstrates Nissan’s focus on core models and electrification under its transformation plan YOKOHAMA, Japan – Nissan today launched the all-new Note compact car in Japan, with sales planned to begin Dec. 23. The new N
  2. I notice today a Japan launch of a new Note with only an electric powertrain. Havent looked the details yet but with the QQ configuration I wonder if Nissan are actually being very clever. If traditional ICEs are to be banned in a numbet of years time, they could eventually be replaced by an alternative power unit, e.g. hydrogen, which would then still charge the batteries and keep the electric drive motors. Hmmm...
  3. (the thread title borrowed from another place!) My question regarding the recent Government announcement of no petrol or diesel only cars to be sold by 2030 is: What about Vans, Trucks, Trains, etc. The above is from a government who cancelled a large railway electrification project and retrofitted dozens of new trains with underfloor diesel engines... What about hydrogen power and other alternatives (the marine industry are building a prototype ship with an ICE powered by ammonia!)? Discuss!
  4. The e-Power 4wd version sounds very interesting. I presume it avoids the dreaded CVT gearbox. And one of the reports hints at the possibility of a Nismo QQ!!
  5. YOKOHAMA, Japan – The new Nissan Kicks SUV has won the 2021 “Technology of the Year” award, given by the Automotive Researchers' and Journalists' Conference of Japan (RJC), for its e-POWER electrified powertrain. The Kicks, launched in Japan last June, was also named one of the “6 Best Cars of the Year” by RJC. For full new release see: https://global.nissannews.com/en/releases/201119-01-e

  7. But one might be able to help others get out when you come across a vehicle fire. My question was specifically about fire sticks rather than traditional extinguishers...
  8. Nothing to do with the racing but I must admit not being able to consider the Infiniti range when looking for a new set of wheels has really disappointed me.
  9. Anyone got one or more of these? My venerable Dry Powder Fire Extinguisher should probably be replaced, and a "Fire Stick" was recommended. I'm not sure which one I'd need and wondered if anyone else had got them, or even experienced using them? Also, I did notice a couple of car clubs sell them, presumably buying them at Trade and selling them on... Now we have Shop software is it something to think about?

    So, Lewis is arguably now the motor racing GOAT. And imo he should get SPOTY this December... but will he?
  11. Well done and thanks for letting us know. Maybe useful to someone else some time.
  12. I'm sorry but I dont know. However I'm sure someone else will be along to assist...
  13. So here's Q2 (and with a comment)... Comment: On the forums page it took me a while to figure out how to get to the /Discover page but worked it out eventually that you click on "Activity". The use of different words for the link and the page is not helpful. Q2: When on the forums pages, how do you get back to the website (www.)? Cant find a link anywhere... TIA.
  14. I'm sure I tried that but couldnt get it to work! It also works like that in Word. Thanks Robin.
