NISSAN E.DAMS ANNOUNCES MAXIMILIAN GUENTHER AS NEW FORMULA E DRIVER

YOKOHAMA, Japan (September 2, 2021) – Nissan e.dams is excited to announce Maximilian Guenther as its new Nissan e.dams Formula E racing driver. Guenther will partner with Sebastien Buemi from season eight of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship.

The German racer has shown incredible pace in the all-electric Formula E racing series with three victories and a second place podium. This follows success in junior categories; he became runner-up in the FIA Formula 3 Championship scoring 10 race wins. He then moved up into FIA Formula 2 taking a race victory and a podium. Guenther started his rookie season in Formula E in 2018.

Guenther said: “It makes me feel very proud to become part of the Nissan e.dams family. The team has big ambitions in the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship and I’m full of motivation to contribute to the success of this project. To compete for one of the biggest car manufacturers in the world is an honor and a great new step in my career. I’m looking forward to this exciting journey.”

Nissan looks forward to season eight (2021/2022), its fourth season in Formula E, to continue to shape and implement its performance, technology and activities for the series.

“We are excited to see the passion and drive Maximilian will bring to the team,” said Tommaso Volpe, Nissan global motorsports director. “During his Formula E debut season, the young driver clinched his first ever victory and became the youngest race winner in the series’ history.”

“I am delighted to welcome Maximilian to the Nissan global motorsports family,” said Ashwani Gupta, chief operating officer at Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. “Maximilian brings a wealth of experience, having three Formula E race victories under his belt. I am sure that he will very quickly settle in and succeed in what is one of the most talented grids of any global motorsports series.”

Nissan races in Formula E to bring the excitement and fun of zero-emission electric vehicles to a global audience. As part of its goal to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle of its products by 2050, Nissan intends to electrify all-new Nissan vehicle offerings by the early 2030s in key markets.

“Our long-term commitment to Formula E gives us a powerful platform from which to demonstrate the exciting performance of our zero-emission EV technology, and how racing in the all-electric series helps us build better cars for our customers through our track-to-road technology transfer engineering collaboration,” said Gupta.

“Maximilian joining our team is yet another exciting chapter in our Formula E story,” said Gregory Driot, co-team principal of Nissan e.dams. “His speed and determination will be a valuable asset to driving the race team forward.”

Mitsunori Takaboshi will continue as the team’s test and reserve driver. Former Nissan GT Academy winner Jann Mardenborough will remain as the team’s official simulator driver.

TCMH LAUNCHES COVID-19 VACCINATION CAMPAIGN FOR EMPLOYEES AND FAMILIES

Tan Chong Motor Holdings Berhad (“TCMH”/“The Group”) has recently launched its first ever TC COVID-19 Vaccination Programme for its employees nationwide, enjoining the national efforts in making the National COVID-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) a success.

To-date, 70 percent of all Tan Chong employees nationwide have had the vaccine (either 1 or 2 doses) and also confirmed appointments, thus TC COVID-19 Vaccination Programme will ensure the rest of its employees and family members to be vaccinated as an important step towards achieving COVID-19 herd immunity and national economic recovery.  This programme will be rolled out beginning August 2021 via local clinics or at Tan Chong’s premises.

“In our shared fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our colleagues, customers and surrounding communities remain our top priority.  The Group has been regularly communicating the importance to maintain and observe health and safety protocols to avoid any resurgence of the virus.  With this vaccination programme, we hope to achieve a fully vaccinated workforce by the end of September and hence protecting them so that they can return to work safely when permitted,” said Mr Daniel Ho, Group Chief Executive Officer of Tan Chong Motor Holdings Berhad.

The continuous efforts are to complement the new immunisation target set by the government, for all adults in Malaysia to be fully vaccinated by October 2021.  Despite the challenges, the Group remains committed to building resilience and overcoming adversity in collaboration with our stakeholders.

ALL-NEW NISSAN ALMERA TURBO REFUSES TO COMPROMISE; AN INTERIOR WITH CLASS-ABOVE FEATURES, QUALITY AND COMFORT

KUALA LUMPUR, (Dec 17, 2020) – The all-new Nissan Almera Turbo takes the popular sedan to a new level of refinement with a fresh, exciting design, technology and safety features not usually found in the B-segment category – with a clear design expression of the Nissan brand.

Sedans remain a popular choice for Gen X, Millennials and young families in Malaysia, and design is one of the top priorities in choosing a vehicle, which is also a key strategic advantage for the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo, combining a dramatic, expressive exterior with a fresh new interior with class-above features, quality and comfort.

The all-new Nissan Almera Turbo’s interior has been totally redesigned to accommodate a new instrument panel, infotainment screens, sporty flat bottom steering wheel and zero gravity inspired seats. The biggest enhancement in the interior is its stunning dual tone dashboard* with double stitching, soft padded grey ‘Gliding Wing’ instrument panel that expands the feel of the space through use of light and sleek ‘wingspan’. The effect of the design’s spatial symmetry is an enhanced sense of togetherness. The horizontal architecture, open spaces and use of harmonious materials and colours such as chrome, silver painted, piano black and carbon fibre pattern finishes, adds premium-ness and modernity to the entire cabin.

Another obvious improvement is the all-new full colour 7” Semi Digital Advanced Drive-Assist Display (ADAD) meter* that provides 9 brilliant customizable drive information screens which includes digital visual driving aid for Nissan Intelligent Mobility functions, digital tachometer (RPM) and drive-to-empty (DTE) information, speedometer, audio, coolant and fuel economy status, and comprehensive digital user settings.

Further delivering a connected drive, the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo is heightened with a new user-centric 8” Advance Touchscreen Display Audio* with Apple Carplay™ that allows you to play your favourite tunes, make calls, receive messages or get directions – all hands-free, as well as the tilt and telescopic adjustable Sporty Flat Bottom Steering Wheel with audio, Bluetooth hands-free, semi digital display and Cruise Control** switches right at the driver’s fingertips. The Almera Turbo is also complete with other convenient features such as the intuitive Climate Control Air-conditioning System*, Intelligent Key (I-KEY) with remote keyless entry including lock/ unlock and trunk release, push start button and 3 USB-powered ports at the front, center and rear consoles.

From the moment you get into the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo, you will feel like you have been upgraded. The Almera Turbo features impressive fit and finish, perfect blend of technologies, smart design and craftsmanship, which all adds up to your everyday ‘wow’ moment,” said Christopher Tan, Sales and Marketing Director of Edaran Tan Chong Motor Sdn Bhd.

The stylish passenger cabin in the all-new Nissan Almera Turbo retains its highly appreciated interior space with its roomy rear legroom of 620mm, new split fold-down rear seats function and large trunk space. Along with improved soft mountings, thicker door glass and insulation around the vehicle, the Almera Turbo’s noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) has been considerably reduced, resulting in a quieter, stress-free cabin altogether.

Standard on all variants are the stylish grey accent Zero Gravity Inspired Semi Bucket Sport Seats (driver and front passenger) that supports the lumbar, mid back and shoulder region, helps to reduce fatigue while travelling on longer journeys, and the 60:40 Split Fold-down Rear Seats that provides more space for extra-long items. Additionally, the generous trunk space of 482L (VDA) with a lower and wider opening for easier access is able to accommodate plenty of storage including fitting in 4 golf bags.
