Auto Shanghai 2013 will mark Nissan's first deployment of its new global exhibit space design for motor shows in Asia. The new design was first used this January at the North American International Auto Show 2013 in Detroit. The booth is designed to immerse guests completely into a Nissan world, appealing throughout with sight, sound, touch and even smell, with a new green tea-inspired "Nissan fragrance".
2013 will also mark a commemorate year for Nissan. Since the first Nissan vehicle arrived in China, Nissan has grown deep roots in the country. Nissan looks forward to many more years ahead in the country and is committed to continue delivering innovative and exciting products to the Chinese community.
