Against a backdrop of record oil prices, fears of a global recession and demand for ever lower greenhouse gas emissions, buyers are looking for an inexpensive and fuel-efficient car with a low CO2 output. They need look no further. The new Nissan PIXO, a four-seater producing 103 g/km of CO2, will offer genuinely environmentally-conscious motoring at an accessible price.
“Motorists all over Europe are seeking a car with excellent fuel economy and low emissions but they believe they shouldn't have to pay a premium for that. PIXO delivers on all levels. It's the car to meet the needs of customers who are increasingly economically and environmentally conscious.”
Carlos Tavares, Vice President, Nissan Motor Limited

With oil prices fluctuating in a volatile global market and governments worldwide agreeing to set ever lower targets for emissions from all sources, the arrival of the PIXO underlines Nissan's commitment to providing affordable, urban transport which is efficient in terms of consumption and emissions. Its arrival on the Nissan range complements the Micra and Note, giving the company a strong, diverse selection of compact, spacious and efficient cars which are well equipped for the reality of modern urban driving. And when it is launched in Europe, the PIXO will wear the newly announced Pure Drive badge, which will help car-buyers to identify the most efficient models in Nissan's range.
Thanks to exceptional fuel economy and with CO2 emissions that are among the lowest in comparison with its competitors, PIXO makes a strong case for itself.
