Nissan takes a step into the digital era with its updated logo design

The carmaker’s refreshed identity retains the Nissan text cutting across a circular motif, but with a more streamlined look. The font has been slimmed down, the circle is thinner, and the original bar subtly disappears when the design is illuminated, making it more apt for the digital era. Apart from physical badges, the new logo will also make its way across a range of other media, ranging from corporate letterheads and dealership signs to social media posts and online advertising.

Four iterations of the logo will be utilized, with Nissan’s electric vehicles featuring an exclusive illuminated version lit by 20 LEDs, representing the two decades between logo redesigns.

The revised interior features more soft-touch surfaces and better build quality, with a new 8-inch infotainment system featuring Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth, AUX input, and USB connectivity. Under the hood, a 1.0L turbocharged engine powers the front wheels, working in tandem with an XTRONIC continuously variable transmission.
