New Delhi: The Nissan Technology & Design Square, an event developed to give students an inside view into the world of design and technology, kicked off January 9 in Delhi. This premiere exhibition for India will run through January 12 in the Recreational Activity Centre at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT).

The Nissan Technology & Design Square is an evolutionary event that follows the Nissan Design Forum in 2007 and Nissan Technology Square in 2008, two events previously created to share Nissan design and technology with stakeholders including students and provide insight and inspiration.

"This is our first opportunity in India to show the innovative technologies and emotive designs that come from a long and rich heritage at Nissan," said Shouhei Kimura, CEO of Nissan Motor India Private Limited. "We believe our mission in India is to fascinate people, add excitement and enrich people's lives through our technology and design."

In the showcase's technology corner, Nissan focuses on how technology and technological innovations can address issues related to the environment and safety. The technology corner utilizes panels, interactive displays and demonstrations to deliver its messages. The CVT and VQ engines, Xtronic CVT and all-mode 4x4-i will be among the featured technologies that also will be available on vehicles planned for launch in India.

The design corner showcase features scale models of vehicles and panels showing design concepts from Nissan. The strength of Nissan design comes from excelling in using Japanese DNA and diversity to create a unique and contrasting class of vehicles, from the GT-R with its ultimate super-car performance to the peaceful CUBE with its inviting comfort.

Additionally, Nissan representatives will discuss current design and automotive technologies and future direction through programs for university students. A zero emissions concept vehicle will be among the topics discussed, as well as design philosophy, strategy and processes from the first-hand view of an automotive designer.

The event is expected to generate additional excitement for students through a design contest.

Nissan also will sponsor Tech Fest 09 and bring the Nissan Technology & Design Square to the event scheduled January 24 to 26 at IIT Bombay.
