Nissan unveils multi-purpose SUV X-TRAIL In India

New Delhi, Jan. 18 - Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. today unveiled its multi-purpose sports utility vehicle (SUV) X-TRAIL at the 7th Auto Expo 2004, the first time for Nissan to exhibit a vehicle at the biennial show in New Delhi.

The X-TRAIL features a 2.2-liter turbo diesel engine producing 136 horsepower. Together with its high-performance four-wheel drive system, the vehicle provides agile maneuverability as well as low fuel consumption.

The X-TRAIL SUV has been developed around the product concept of a "versatile and authentic SUV," designed to offer the optimum balance between off-road capacity and on-road comfort. The X-TRAIL, which was first launched in Japan in October 2000, is currently sold in more than 180 countries and has received more than a dozen international awards.

The automaker expects to start selling the X-TRAIL in India in the middle of 2004 after receiving official approval from ARAI (the Automotive Research Association of India), India’s governmental vehicle testing authority.
