Three European debuts from Nissan for the 2008 Geneva Auto Show, but no world premiers are known just yet.
The first day is barely in the can at the Chicago Auto Show, and already Nissan is trying to get attention for their stand at next month's show in Geneva. While this would make sense if Nissan were announcing the unveiling of something new, unique, and/or special, it just does not appear to be the case.
Last year, Nissan unveiled the second generation of their highly successful X-Trail SUV in Switzerland. This wise move was predicated by the large annual European sales of the X-Trail. Barring any surprises by the Japanese automaker, the automaker will put their three most talked about models over the last year on the stand, but will have no world premiers at the show.
Fanboys will gather around the Nissan GT-R throughout the duration of the show, 20-somethings and families will surround the new Nissan Murano, and curious onlooker will try to figure out what Nissan engineers were smoking when they created the Nissan Pivo II. All three are making there European debuts.
At the show, we will get some more details about the Murano, which goes on sale in Europe this October. And we are excited about the Euro specs and pricing for the GT-R, which will be announced in Geneva. I guess Nissan does have some news after all.
