Lewis Nissan Shows Off New Showroom at Business After Hours

Lewis Nissan hosted a Business After Hours event offered by the Beckley-Raleigh County Chamber of Commerce earlier this month to showcase our new showroom and added amenities the Nissan dealership now offers.

“We were a Chevy dealer for years, but now Nissan has stepped in and become our flagship franchise and we have just completed this new Nissan showroom, so we wanted to host a Business After Hours here to get people to come out and see our new showroom,” stated our very own Sarah Abrams, Public Relations Manager.

Amenities in the spacious facility include flat screen televisions in a waiting room, a children’s play area, a drive-through weather-free service write-up area and 45 service bays. The Nissan Dealership is pet friendly and offers free popcorn and coffee to guests throughout the day.

This month’s event boasted food and beverages from Pasquale’s, along with representatives from NAPA Auto Part; United States Marine Corps, who were hosting a pull-up competition; and Elevation Sports.

This is the second Business After Hours in the month of May, and according to Joe Guffy, information coordinator for BRCCC; a third will take place May 31 at Burning Rock, marking the first time in the history of BRCCC hosts three After Hours events in one month.

Nissan LEAF Gaining Momentum

Electric Vehicles (EVs) are becoming more of a common sight worldwide. Nissan has already sold 28,000 LEAFs worldwide, and there are so many Nissan LEAF owners in the California area that they have started their own club.

In our neck of the woods, here in West Virginia, the 2012 Nissan LEAF is still fresh in our minds. Lewis Nissan took delivery of one of the first Nissan LEAFs just a last month. But so far, the LEAF has received some great attention from our communities. Maybe this time next year, West Virginia will have their own LEAF club? 🙂

Production Starts on All-New 2013 Nissan Altima

Nissan Altima

The first Nissan Altima rolled out of Smyrna back in 1992 as a 1993 model. Since then, more than 4.4 million have been produced. Nissan is calling this the “most innovative Altima yet” with new levels of ” innovation, fuel-efficiency, dynamic performance and premium style.”

To commemorate Altima’s start of production, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam joined Smyrna team members and Nissan leadership as the first all-new mid-size sedan rolled off the assembly line. Smyrna will serve as home to more “firsts” in the coming months, including welcoming production for the 100-percent-electric Nissan LEAF and the batteries that power it, the next-generation Nissan Pathfinder, and, in 2013, the next-generation Nissan Rogue.

The new 2013 Altima offers standard Bluetooth Hands-Free Phone System with Streaming Audio via Bluetooth. Also available are NissanConnect and NissanConnect Navigation with a suite of Bluetooth phone connectivity features, including hands-free text message integration, Pandora playback, real-time Google POI search and more; along with easy fill tire alert, and next-generation safety shield technologies, including blind spot warning, lane departure warning and moving object detection systems.

The Altima begins arriving at Nissan dealers nationwide in June with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (**MSRP) of $21,500.
