2012 Versa is First Nissan to Earn PUREDRIVE Badge in North America
Although Nissan is already well known for their 100% electric vehicle the Nissan LEAF, not many people know how environmentally sound their other vehicles are. All of the vehicles in the Nissan fleet have undergone improvements to reduce emissions but only one has earned the title of a PUREDRIVE vehicle in North America: the 2012 Nissan Versa. Truth be told, the 2012 Nissan Versa is the first car in the country to meet the 2016 Federal CAFÉ standards.
The fact the 2012 Nissan Versa is four years ahead of the government’s schedule is a clear example of Nissan’s commitment to green technology. The Nissan LEAF may be future of electric vehicles, but not all consumers want an electric car or are ready for one yet. And if this is you, don’t think you have to drive a gas-guzzling car until then. The 2012 Nissan Versa dominates the subcompact market and its fuel economy is one of the main reasons for its popularity.
As stated above, the 2012 Nissan Versa is the flagship for improving fuel economy and reducing emission levels. Offering a 1.6L DOHC 4-cylinder engine and an industry first mass-produced dual-injector per cylinder design, the 2012 Nissan Versa gives you 38 MPG on the highway and 30 MPG in the city. A super clean engine that gives you a combined 33 MPG is definitely a WIN-WIN.
The 2012 Nissan Versa achieves this through a detailed process unique to Nissan. All of the 2012 Nissan Versa’s engine components are microfinished to reduce friction and supply a quicker response to your demands. Smoother engine parts definitely equal a more harmonious environment under the hood.
Variable Valve Timing (VVT) plays a large roll in the fuel economy as well. By continually adjusting to engine timing on both camshafts, the Variable Valve Timing provides a nice boost of power when you need it. This technology was borrowed from the Versa’s big brother Maxima.
