AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Oct. 12 -- The 2000 model Nissan Xterra sport-utility vehicle, which came on the market in May, combines smart styling with a strong safety package. The modestly priced Xterra provides owners with an authentic off-road ability in a mid-size vehicle, and is the most affordable of true sport utility vehicles built on a truck frame. Included in the reasonable price tag are standard four-wheel anti-lock brakes, supplied by Continental Teves. The four-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) prevents the Xterra's wheels from locking during hard braking situations and helps drivers maintain the ability to steer the vehicle where they want it to go. ABS technology is part of a Nissan safety standard that was co-developed with Continental Teves for the Xterra. This is Continental Teves' pioneer program with Nissan. Engineers from Continental Teves worked closely with their counterparts at Nissan to translate advanced electronic braking technologies into safety and convenience benefits for everyday driving. Continental Teves, headquartered in Frankfurt/Main, Germany, is a unit of Continental AG, Hannover, Germany. With 1998 sales of US $2.3 billion, Continental Teves is a world leader in the design, development and supply of critical brake and chassis stability systems that contribute to driving safety and comfort. The company's North American headquarters is located in Auburn Hills, Mich.
