2013 Nissan Altima Sedan makes world debut at New York International Auto Show

A big week in front of a big audience - that's one way to describe Nissan's major presence in New York City prior to the opening on Friday of the 2012 New York International Auto Show.  Heading the slate of announcements is s world debut of the next-generation
of Nissan's totally redesigned 2013 Altima Sedan.

The reveal of the most innovative Nissan Altima ever follows the first public showing of the upcoming Nissan NV200 'Taxi of Tomorrow' at an event last evening hosted by Nissan President and CEO Carlos Ghosn and attended by New York City Major Michael Bloomberg and other city officials. Both vehicles will be on display throughout the run of the show, April 6 through April 15, at New York City's Jacob Javits Convention Center. In addition, the Nissan Pathfinder Concept, a preview of the next-gen Nissan Pathfinder SUV, makes its New York debut at the show.

The new 2013 Altima and Pathfinder are the first of five all-new models Nissan is launching in the next 15 months. The 2011 calendar year was the sixth consecutive year of market share gains for Nissan in the US, with the Altima ranking as the second best-selling car in the US. The Altima goes on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in July at a starting M.S.R.P. of $21,500. The new Pathfinder launches later this fall.

"The new Altima hits the consumer bulls-eye dead center by delivering a balance of style, performance and value that will continue to make it one of the most popular cars in America," said Ghosn.

The Nissan NV200 Taxi was selected, after a rigorous, two-year competitive bid selection process by the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC), as the exclusive taxi of New York City beginning in late 2013.

"The Taxi of Tomorrow draws on Nissan's global experience in commercial vehicles, as well as insight from New York City taxi drivers and passengers, who helped identify important improvements over today's cabs.  The Nissan taxi will deliver unprecedented levels of innovation and comfort to New York's 600,000 daily taxi riders," continued Ghosn.
