The Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition features battle-tested Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield Technologies and exclusive custom STAR WARS features.

The 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition will come in two colors, both inspired by the iconic troopers from the film.

It is based on the popular SV trim level for the 2017 Nissan Rogue, but upgraded with high-tech LED headlights. Each Limited Edition Rogue also features exclusive embossed badging designed for Nissan by Lucasfilm.


This is the first time they have put the Star Wars mark on a vehicle, and we are honored to be a pioneer. Both the  rear bumper and the illuminated kick plates feature the Star Wars logo.

Also, the symbols of the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire show up throughout the vehicle. The logos on the outside are not visible all the time, but when the light shines the right way, others will see the beautiful artwork inspired by the film.

Self-driving Cars in Nashville

Nashville, TN has been chosen as one of the ten cities, including Buenos Aires and Paris, around the world to work with Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Aspen Institute, moving forward and preparing for the arrival of self-driving vehicles. This means that Nashville will have access to data and coaching from urban planners so that the cities may research how to use the technology to address local challenges.

Even though she does not believe autonomous vehicles will solve all of the city’s traffic issues, Nashville Director of Transportation, Erin Hafkenschiel, says  she hopes the cars could be used to increase mobility for senior citizens and those with disabilities.

Self-driving vehicles are a fairly new concept, but over the past couple years, it has become normal to hear about them in conversation. From Google’s self-driving cars, that have now logged over 700,00 miles of accident-free driving time, to Uber’s self-driving truck that just made its first delivery of 50,000 beers, they are now very much a part of our reality. There is no telling what the future holds.
