CARTAGENA, Colombia - In anticipation of its arrival to Latin American markets starting July, Nissan surprised Colombia by delivering the first Nissan NOTE aboard a majestic 18th century vessel. The charming Port of Cartagena de Indias in Colombia was the stage for this regional launch of the Nissan NOTE 2014.
On the deck of the galley and amidst fireworks that lit Cartagena's sky, the new Nissan NOTE was unveiled. Among those present were journalists from Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama and Venezuela, along with executives from Nissan Latin America and the Caribbean and Dinissan, the brand's exclusive distributor in Colombia.
The new Nissan NOTE, produced in Aguascalientes, will be available in Latin America starting July in the following versions: Sense (manual and CVT) and Advance (manual and CVT).
Nissan NOTE is a 5-door hatchback with class-leading interior space, fuel economy and innovative technologies.

To continue surprising, we disembarked the first Nissan NOTE in Latin America on a mighty vintage galley. But the real surprise is the high functionality, attractive design and interior space of this five-door hatchback," said Jose Roman, vice president and managing director of Nissan Latin America and the Caribbean.
