Nissan trademarks next-gen Z’s badge

KUALA LUMPUR: Nissan, one of the three biggest carmakers of Japan has recently filed a trademark application of a new “Z” logo with the Government of Canada, as revealed by the Motor Trend. According to the sources, Nissan’s Z car will be getting a comprehensive new design as well as a new logo in a retro theme. The new logo will have a two-dimensional and monochromatic appearance in the sans-serif font rather than existing three-dimensional chrome finishing.

The initial look of the new Nissan logo was first observed on the Ariya electric crossover at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2019. The electric crossover badge is almost the same as the new logo filed which means that the firm would be launching the revamped logo soon.

The new “Z” logo is somehow identical to the original Z badging which adorned the acclaimed Datsun 240Z debuted in 1969. It will be an honour for the 51 years old 240Z. The new classic logo will replace the 350Z and 370Z’s boxy, straight-edged font design with a more classic flared one.

If we talk about the ongoing Nissan 370Z mechanical numbers, it is powered by a 3.7-liter V-6 unit, which is capable to generate 332 PS of maximum power in the standard version and 350 PS in the racier Nismo variant.
