Nissan's commitment to innovation, style and excitement has produced some of
the most talked-about cars in recent years. And now, following in the tracks
of the ground-breaking Qashqai and Juke, the new Note sets the standard for
advanced, relevant technology in an affordable small car package. The Note
features intelligent, relevant features useful in day to day driving, allowing
drivers to feel safer and more secure at all times.

With cities across Europe continuing to battle with congestion and road
traffic accidents claiming around 34,000 lives each year and leaving more than
1.1 million people injured*, Nissan has committed itself to making safety
technologies more accessible - Nissan Safety Shield plays a key part in this
process. This new technology will be making its global segment debut on the
Nissan Note to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on 5 ^th March 2013 and
will be in showrooms from the autumn.

The all-new Nissan Note brings together the high-end technology usually found
in premium, luxury models to the small car sector for the first time, setting
new standards for affordability and continuing a proud tradition of
revolutionising the various sectors that Nissan's vehicles come under - from
the all-electric LEAF all the way to the mighty GT-R supercar.

The Nissan Safety Shield is made up of three advanced safety systems - Blind
Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Moving Object Detection - and,
combined with Nissan's Around View Mirror, provides optimum protection not
only for the car's occupants, but crucially for those outside of the car.
With these systems working together, the Nissan Safety Shield can alert
drivers to objects moving behind the car (for example, a child walking towards
you when reversing); indicate when a vehicle is in the driver's blind spot so
the driver can take avoiding action and can detect when a car is drifting out
of its lane.

Etienne Henry, Vice-President for Nissan Strategy & Product Planning in Europe
commented: "The all-new Note presented our engineers with a fascinating
challenge, in that we wanted to incorporate a huge amount of advanced
technology but keep costs reasonable. In developing the three Safety Shield
elements to run from one camera we were able to keep manufacturing costs under
tight control and make this technology package accessible to the small car
segment for the first time."
