Default Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016

Big shoutout to Aditya for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

The highlights of the Nissan pavilion this year at the Auto Expo is the GT-R and the third generation X-Trail:

Now here's something cool - Eporo. It's a radar-guided robot car concept which is designed to travel in a group of like-vehicles, mimicking the behavioral patterns of a school of fish in avoiding obstacles without colliding with each other:

After the cool stuff, we come to the Terrano Concept - A contender for the weird and wacky thread?

The car wears a matte black, white and orange theme:

It has a pop-type sunroof too:

It comes with a body kit and daytime running lights:

It also gets a boot lip spoiler:

Nissan is one of the sponsors for the ICC T20 world cup this year:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-91.jpg

There's a small box cricket section for the public:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-92.jpg

Obviously, a WT20 Special Edition has to be introduced. This is the Terrano:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-69.jpg

Body graphics + 16" alloy wheels:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-70.jpg

An additional badge stating that it's a special edition:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-71.jpg

It gets a matte black roof:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-74.jpg

Based on the XL variant:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-76.jpg

You got to really be a cricket fan to have this on your car:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-77.jpg

It gets a touchscreen music system inside:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-79.jpg

Ditto updates with the Micra Active. This is the WT20 Special Edition:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-80.jpg

Body decals and contrasting door handles & ORVMs:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-81.jpg

White spoiler:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-86.jpg

It is based on the XL variant:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-88.jpg

ICC World T20 badge:
Nissan @ Auto Expo 2016-89.jpg

Like I mentioned, you really need to be a die-hard cricketing fan to have this vinyl on your car's bonnet:

Nissan can do much better than this. Sometimes I wonder whether they are in tune with ground realities or not. Apart from the X-trail launch, they could have given this show a miss and saved the moolah.

Seeing the cricket editions, I can imagine my neighborhood kid gang adding to the autographs within a week!

Is this the best foot forward from Nissan...:Frustrate

Except the GT-R, which is not for any normal masses (only targeted at rich kids), nothing else is really making any statement about Nissan's plans for India in coming future. Just kitted up existing models won't qualify as concepts. In fact just different paint scheme/graphics won't even qualify to be facelift version.

Nissan has totally lost the plot in Indian market and seem to be least bothered to strategize any revival plans.

The GTR looks yum and fiery in red The 'special edition' Terrano and Micra really needs a bold and die hard cricket fan owner as suggested in the post!

Disappointed with Nissan's products showcasing!!

Though GT-R is super exciting, is not a mass product and petrol only X-Trail without any major differentiation or edge over already well settled competitors like Fortuner, Santa Fe - I am puzzled with Nissan's direction.

I own a Terrano, its a beautful SUV. I was hoping to see something new, something refreshing, but Terrano Concept looks like a mod done at a local garage. Black, white and orange theme and autographs on hood of special edition release - really couldn't digest.

Nissan is an automobile giant internationally, I am sure they know these things, then why they are not serious about Indian market?

That Nissan Terrano deserves to be called Nissan TERROR! What a cruelty to the good looking SUV, it sure didn't deserve such treatment.

Except for the super car CBUs Nissan doesn't seem to have anything new for the Indian market except for the X-Trail. Very sad to see this from a capable manufacturer.

As rightly said the cricket edition does look like it has gone past its age when we had the Palio Tendulkar edition and sort. Not sure if anyone would like to buy a car and keep it for a long time with decals of a particular tournament. A subtle badging would have done the job.

Anyways looks like they have "run out" of ideas like the gaudy Terrano on display.
