Nissan Serena MK5 car mod for Cities Skylines.

The SERENA is a minivan manufactured and sold by Nissan Motor Co., Ltd.

Its roots go back to the Datsun Sunny Cab / Nissan Cherry Cab, which appeared between 1969 and 1970.
Nissan’s passenger cars usually have an odd number in the tens digit of the vehicle model (E12, R34, Y51, etc.), but since it inherits the Vanette lineage, it is a passenger car but the tens digit of the model. Is “2” (originally representing a light commercial vehicle).

The exterior design of this 5th generation late model posted this time has been redesigned, especially the “Highway Star” has a chrome grille pattern on the “Double V Motion Grill”, and the LED rear combination lamp has been changed to a special design.
16-inch aluminum wheels are newly set for e-POWER (“e-POWER Highway Star G” is standard equipment, “e-POWER XV”, “e-POWER G”, “e-POWER Highway Star V” are Manufacturer option setting).

Instead of abolishing the “Shining Blue Pearl” and the e-POWER exclusive color “Mint White Pearl 3 Coat Pearl (special paint color)” in monotone, the new color “Sunrise Orange Multiflex Pearl Metallic (special paint color)” ) ”And“ Dark Metal Gray Metallic ”are added. Two new colors have been added to the two tones, and all colors have been unified into a combination with “Diamond Black Pearl”. “Maroon Red Multiflex Pearl Metallic / Diamond Black Pearl 2 Tone” is also available as a standard type Serena. It was set.

In terms of safety equipment, as an evolved version of High Beam Assist, the front camera installed detects the situation in front and changes the irradiation pattern of 12 LEDs arranged on each side according to the presence or absence of oncoming vehicles and preceding vehicles. By doing so, it became Nissan’s first “adaptive LED headlight system” that can maintain a high beam even when there are oncoming vehicles.
“Intelligent BSI (rear side collision prevention support system)” and “BSW (rear side vehicle detection warning)” that help avoid contact with approaching vehicles on the rear side of the adjacent lane while driving,
All vehicles are equipped as standard with “RCTA (Vehicle Detection Warning when Reversing)” that detects vehicles trying to cross behind when reversing and alerts them.
The “ProPilot” can maintain the set speed on the downhill and operate the brakes, and has been improved to improve the function when the wiper is activated.

In addition, the “misstep collision prevention assist”, which was previously an option, is now standard equipment on all models.
The grade system has been expanded, and “XV” and “Highway Star G” have been added to the S-HYBRID model, and “e-POWER G” and “e-POWER Highway Star G” have been added to the e-POWER model.
At the same time, the “Step Type” handled by Autech Japan and the “Life Care Vehicle” series of welfare vehicles have also undergone minor changes.

The “Step Type” and “Life Care Vehicle” series will be redesigned and safety equipment will be expanded according to the base vehicle, and the “Chair Cab Slope Type” of the “Life Care Vehicle” series will be “Wheelchair 1 person second specification”. And “One wheelchair third specification (” B “and” X “only)”, the number of passengers has been increased by one by changing the shape of the second seat.

e-POWER is a power train that appeared at the time of the minor change of the Nissan Note (E12 type) in 2016.
Although the name does not include hybrids and is not actively touted by sales strategies that differentiate it from existing hybrid systems,
It is a typical series hybrid that generates electricity with an engine and runs on a motor.

The power generation unit uses the Note’s in-line 3-cylinder engine (HR12DE), which was first introduced, after tuning specifically for the purpose of power generation, and the power control unit and drive unit use the Leaf technology as it is.
The reason why the engine for mini vehicles was not used is that the displacement per cylinder is too small, and the loss in terms of thermal efficiency spoils the merit of miniaturization.

The same type of engine was installed in the Serena, which adopted e-POWER next to the notebook and has a different vehicle class.
Except for the battery capacity, which is the heart of the hybrid, and the presence or absence of a power generator, it is almost the same as the Leaf.

In addition, in situations where series hybrids are not good (mainly for high-speed cruising where there are few stop-and-go and less energy regeneration, and where direct engine drive is good), hybrid systems and clean diesel vehicles of other companies Compared to, it tends to be disadvantageous in terms of fuel efficiency.
