Nissan develops new V6 engines
Tokyo, Japan – Nissan has developed two new-generation V6 engines for its rear-wheel drive vehicles, with a 10 per cent improvement in fuel efficiency. The engines will be built at Nissan’s Iwaki Plant in Fukushima Prefecture and will be used in the all-new Skyline in Japan, and in the U.S., where the model is sold as the Infiniti G35.
The engines also meet Super Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle standards, which have 75 per cent or less nitrogen oxide (NOx) and hydrocarbon emissions than those stipulated by Japan’s 2005 exhaust emissions standards.
