2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: Innovation & Efficiency

September 30, 2011

Nissan is an innovative and efficient company. This is embodied by the groundbreaking Nissan Leaf EV, and our long-term 2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD.

Maybe you've seen this one already. In another one of my Friday out of left field posts, Nissan was so concerned about efficiency that they designed their own cargo ship.

The awkwardly named City of St Petersburg has a semi-spherical prow which reduces wind resistance and increases fuel-efficiency. It also makes this thing look like a space ship out of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Hit the jump for the interesting video.
