Nissan Guns for the Greys
With Buick concentrating on the Chinese market, Cadillac going for a younger demographic and the Lincoln Town Car's future uncertain, someone has to take up the slack for us alter kochers. Toyota has a head start with the Avalon, but Nissan's making a move on the geriatric market. TheMatureMarket.co quotes Renault/Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn as he states the obvious: "The average consumer on earth is going to be much older. We know also that usually the purchasing power is with older people. [That means] more money in the hands of the seniors and more seniors on earth." Watch for more Nissans featuring geezer-friendly technology such as backup cameras and perimeter sensors in the near future. Carlos didn't say if his company is working on a way to automatically cancel the turn signal after the car reaches a certain speed on the highway.
