Had a chat with Nissan NZ boss John Manley today. There's still no diesel in sight for the new Patrol. Apparently, 75 per cent of production is earmarked for the Middle East where petrol rules and costs pennies. It's not just a NZ problem, the rest of the world would rather like a diesel, too, but so far Nissan's search has been fruitless. Anecdotally, they've even talked to Cummins.
