Nissan Rogue One Special Edition

Lewis Hilsenteger from Unbox Therapy, a promotional YouTube account that tests a wide range of new products, unwrapped a Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition on his channel. In the video Lewis highlights the Star Wars-themed aspects of the Rogue One Edition and explores its features.

Along with the Nissan Rogue, Lewis also unboxed an included Death Trooper helmet, a life-size replica that is also limited edition. Lewis first noticed the Rogue One’s white paint job with black grille, wheels, and accents, which echoes the design of Stormtrooper armor, along with the various exterior Star Wars logos and designs. Inside, the Rogue One’s interior has special floor mats, badging inside the cupholders, and even limited edition keychains.

Lewis also took note of the Rogue’s features. In addition to the Star Wars emblems and memorabilia, the Rogue has a range of features from steering wheel controls for the infotainment system to an advanced driver information display. The moonroof, which retracts all the way to the back of the vehicle for a true open air experience, and the ample cargo space with extra under-floor room particularly impressed Lewis.

At the end of the video Lewis encourages anyone with family or friends who are Star Wars fans to share with them, saying the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One edition is the ultimate vehicle for any fan.

The Department of Transportation is Building EV Charger Corridors for Long Distance Trips

EV Charger Corridors

Forget Gas Stations. EV Stations Are Coming

The range of electric cars gets more impressive every year but, with limited charging stations and reasonable worry, few drivers are willing to attempt particularly long trips without relying on gasoline.

Thankfully, the Department of Transportation (DoT) has big plans to make driving electric vehicles for long distances a bit easier, by creating 48 electric vehicle charger corridors on U.S. highways, in 35 different states.

Each of these charging corridors are scheduled to be about 50 miles from each other, and the DoT plans to erect official signs on the highways to alert you of their location.

Automakers are making note of this opportunity, including Nissan, whose much-loved Nissan Leaf model is one of the most popular electric vehicles on the road. GM and BMW are also working with the DoT, just like Nissan, to make the corridors happen.

Unfortunately, we don’t know when the EV charger corridors could be completed, and it may even take years. But with so many auto companies behind the technology, including Nissan, we are confident that it won’t be too long.

For more information on electric vehicles, or to take the new Nissan Leaf out on a test drive, contact us or visit us anytime at Nissan of Durango, near you in Durango, CO!
