Last year, Nissan decided to do something different. It decided to partner with the largest science fiction franchise on the planet.
Nissan debuted a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story special edition vehicle at the Los Angeles Auto Show that would be sold in limited numbers in the United States and Canada. It sold out. It was the first time an automaker worked hand-in-hand with LucasFilm on a vehicle.
