This is the first such award for Nissan since the early 1990s, and according to Chief Operating Officer Toshiyuki Shiga, it is representative of both the hard work of staff and the growing global consciousness about zero emission potential.

“I think this is a big challenge for Nissan, to make a zero-emission, mobile society,” he said. “This (award) as a first step — I am so glad, so happy, to receive this 2011-2012 Japan Car of the Year award.”
