As part of an effort to reconnect the brand with its illustrious past, Nissan recently launched a new exhibition corner at its headquarters in Yokohama dedicated to telling the story of its many iconic cars. The Heritage Zone is located within the Nissan Gallery and will become a permanent feature of the sprawling brand experience space.
Up to 19 heritage models will go on display for a limited period, the timing of which coincides with the 10th anniversary of Nissan’s move from Tokyo to Yokohama in 2009. Other classic models from the Nissan Heritage Collection, located in Zama (30 km away) would then be rotated to keep the exhibits fresh.
The Heritage Zone will also feature a mini library where visitors can read and browse in comfort, a model car wall with over 100 vehicles, as well as a 220-inch LED screen playing rare footage from Nissan’s archive. Yokohama is only a 40-minute train ride from Tokyo, if you’re a Nissan fan (or any car fan for the matter) and find yourself around the vicinity, make it a point to drop by the Nissan Gallery which had played host to some 13 million visitors since 2009.
For the rest of us who can’t make it to Japan, you can salivate over this video which Nissan put together showing its iconic models spanning eight decades as part of the launch of The Heritage Zone.
