Insuring a Nissan Vehicle
Nissan is Japan’s second largest automaker by volume. There are 171 Nissan and 29 Infiniti dealerships in Canada. Nissan Canada has offices in Vancouver, British Columbia; Mississauga, Ontario; and Kirkland, Quebec. Their operations in Canada are mainly for marketing, sales and distribution. Nissan Canada employs 250 employees in Canada and over 170,000 worldwide.
Nissan Does Not Sell Auto Insurance
For auto insurance, you’re going to have to look somewhere else because Nissan does not offer coverage with their other services. However, there are lots of companies in Canada that provide protection for vehicles: Economical Auto Insurance, Royal & SunAlliance Insurance, Aviva Car Insurance, Coachman Insurance and the Alberta Motor Association to name a few.

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety
The Nissan LEAF and the Chevrolet Volt were recently chosen as winners of the “Top Safety Pick” award by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. These were the first tests of plug-in electric cars in North America. This shows that the safety guidelines of new electric and hybrid electric vehicles are comparable to gas-powered cars. In many ways electric vehicles are catching up or surpassing their gasoline counterparts in areas such as fuel economy, design, safety and emissions. These crash test evaluations checked for protection during rollover, front, side and rear crashes. To learn more visit the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety website.
