Based on the X-TRAIL SUV, the "X-TREMER X" features a front overrider, front and rear undercover and huge fog lamps. It comes equipped with a HDD navigation system as standard.
The models come in Burning Red, diamond Black, Brilliant White Pearl, Brilliant Silver and Himalayan Khaki colors, while the interior is finished in black color.
Autech Japan, Inc., a wholly owned Nissan affiliate, today announced that it will start sales of the "X-TREMER X" customized models, based on the X-TRAIL SUV, at Nissan dealers nationwide on August 23rd.
The "X-TREMER X" customized model further emphasizes the X-TRAIL's Tough Gear image. It is equipped with special exterior parts, such as a front overrider, undercover and dedicated large-size fog lamps. These pieces are intended to protect the underbody, mainly in off-road driving, and to further enhance a sense of presence and an air of massive substance as an SUV. The "X-TREMER X Plus Navi HDD" model, fitted with a high performance HDD navigation system as standard equipment, is offered at an affordable price.
Like the base X-TRAIL models, these specially customized models meet tax break measures *1 provided in Japan's "Tax system to promote the diffusion of environmentally friendly vehicles." Customized models based on the "20X" gasoline model qualify for 75% reductions in the automobile acquisition tax and the automobile weight tax, while customized models based on the Clean Diesel "20GT" model are fully exempt from these taxes. Furthermore, as next-generation automobiles, the models based on the Clean Diesel "20GT" model are eligible for the government "subsidies (a maximum of 210k yen) to promote the introduction of clean diesel cars." *2 These clean diesel subsidies continue to be available for eligible cars, even after the end of September 2010 when the eco-car purchase subsidies are due to be terminated.

*1: Customized models based on the "20X" model have achieved 75% lower emissions (SU-LEV) than the levels required by the 2005 exhaust emission standards, and they have also achieved a 25% improvement in fuel economy over the 2010 fuel economy standards. Thus, they qualify for: 75% reduction of the automobile acquisition tax on vehicles newly registered by March 31, 2012 and 75% reduction of the automobile weight tax on vehicles newly registered by April 30, 2012. Meanwhile, the automobile tax on vehicles newly registered by March 31, 2012 is reduced by 50% for one year starting from the next fiscal year following the registrations (excluding mini-vehicles).
The customized models based on the "20GT"(Clean Diesel) are regarded as next generation automobiles, thus they are fully exempt from the automobile acquisition tax and the automobile weight tax during the above-mentioned periods. *2: The open application period for the government subsidies (a maximum of 210k yen) to promote the introduction of clean diesel cars is from April 1, 2010 through February 8, 2011. (If the number of open applications reaches a certain level, the subsidies are to be terminated halfway through the period.) The amount of the clean diesel subsidies varies depending on vehicle purchase prices, and the subsidies cannot be drawn upon in combination with the subsidies for eco-car purchases.
