Can’t say enough good things about the shopping experience with Key West Ford. From start to finish, Adam walked me through the purchase process without any hiccups.
As I was flying in from Alberta, it was important to have a reassuring experience, and Key West delivered! I arrived to see my amazing looking F150 all shined up and ready for me to drive gone. Arash gave me the tour, and I was on my way. Would definitely buy from again!
Easy to deal with and very helpful
I was a 2 hour car ride away from being able to view or test drive anything, and both Peter Olson and Rob Vanoverschot were very helpful both via SMS and phone in trying to get something sorted out for me. Peter was in the office when I went down to visit (not to downplay Rob as he was fantastic at doing all of the leg work before I came in, but even salespersons deserve a day off!) and helped get everything sorted for me (with help from Gurg who was also fantastic and quick on the draw with the paperwork) including test drive and working out the finances / insurance.
This is a fantastic dealership and they go above and beyond especially during COVID times where things aren't always as straight forward. Thanks again guys and I'll be in touch about some winter tyres!

Al helped me out Wednesday. We nailed down the truck I was interested in purchasing. I got it at a price I wanted to work with. Lovely staff all around very accommodating. Straight forward, no nonsense group at Key West ford. I will continue to purchase vehicles in the Future from them. Thanks Al, and the Key West Team! Love the F-150
Found me an Explorer ST
Full marks to Key West Ford. I live in the Okanagan and wanted to buy a new Explorer ST but they are like gold dust, very hard to find. The four Ford dealers I contacted locally could not find me a red or magnetic ST anywhere in Western Canada. So I turned to AutoTrader and saw that Key West Ford had a magnetic grey ST on delivery in ten days. I spoke to Peter Olson on the phone and he confirmed it had all the options I was looking for. Peter and his Sales Manager, Wes, agreed a price for my trade in over the phone and ten days later I made the trip to New Westminster to pick up my brand new ST - just 9 kms on the clock. Great job guys. Highly recommended.

Really good service, making sure I got the vehicle I wanted within the price range I wanted to pay, all during a very chaotic period in my life.
Latest Nissan News For Seattle, Tacoma, And Bellevue Washington
(Posted on Jan 20, 2018 at 06:12AM by Michelle Bogle)
With a solid history in the automotive industry, Nissan is shining an entirely new light on their expertise and innovative technologies. The company recently launched a solar generation and energy storage system for domestic use called Nissan Energy Solar.
Available in the United Kingdom, this all-in-one solution allows homeowners to live more sustainably by harnessing energy from the sun. The technology claims that it can cut energy bills by up to 66%.
Traditionally, solar energy has been used to power home appliances during the day, but Nissan’s innovation can collect and store excess energy and use it in the night. It can even be used to charge an all-electric car, like the Leaf, on a cloudy day.
Francisco Carranza, Managing Director at Nissan Energy, said the system addresses a substantial and cultivating market. "Solar panels have become the world's fastest-growing source of new energy and we're thrilled to launch Nissan Energy Solar in the UK," he said in a statement. "Over 880,000 UK homes already have solar panels installed and they are seeing the benefits every day, from decreasing electricity bills to increasing property values.”
The new technology also includes a home energy management system that will allow users to control how and when they use their energy – and in real time. The result is an entire energy system that’s efficient and sustainable.
Nissan Energy Solar starts at £3,881 (roughly $5,300 USD). There are no official plans to launch this in North America, but solar energy advocates are hopeful.

The world’s premier automotive partnership, Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, announced this week the launch of Alliance Ventures. It stands as a new fund determined to invest as much as $1 billion into industry innovation over the course of the next five years.
The venture capital fund’s first year is expected to bring the investment of approximately $200 million in various promising start-ups that focus on the advancement of worldwide mobility, artificial intelligence (AI), and autonomous systems. By the “midterm” period of the company’s plan—2022—Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi expects to have the largest corporate endowment of its type.
Alliance Ventures will first invest in US-based Ionic Materials. That company is currently dedicated to the development of solid-state, cobalt-free battery materials that could find future use in such Nissan EVs as the zero-emissions LEAF. The 2018 version of that vehicle is set to deliver an all-electric output of 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque with a driving range of 150 miles on a single charge.
Yesterday at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nissan and NASA Ames Research Center announced the extension and expansion of their collaborative effort to advance autonomous driving services worldwide. The refreshed initiative will pull upon previous work to lead the companies into 2019.
The five-year R&D partnership has seen the two corporations team up to enhance shared technology. It birthed Nissan Seamless Autonomous Mobility (SAM), a platform for vehicle fleet management that was introduced at CES 2017 and has its origins in NASA research. With this latest phase official and announced, SAM is set to help organize self-driving transportation services ahead of public implementation testing.
On a broader scale, the extended collaboration will evolve the car industry and Nissan Intelligent Mobility, including its “Drive” and “Power” technologies. These include the automaker’s ProPILOT autonomous system and all-electric vehicles such as the upcoming 2018 LEAF. The former includes automatic lane centering as well as the ePedal, which enables operators to accelerate, stop, and go using only one input. The latter is the company’s zero-emissions EV boasting a new 150-mile range.
Nissan is staying busy this month. This week they’re showcasing at CES 2018, but they’re also taking a time out to reveal the future of mobility at the North American International Auto Show, set to run from January 13-28 in Detroit. You can view each of the currently released teasers below.
Part of Nissan’s “future of mobility” plan is connected to the recently announced Brain-to-Vehicle technology (B2V). It will be integrated into upcoming automobile systems as a device that reads your mind waves (really!) and operates the car on your behalf. This includes stopping, accelerating, braking, and more. The boon is that it can do all these functions roughly 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster than a driver can manually.
Current mobility implementations will only continue to get better in the future. This includes the ProPILOT suite of technologies, including Advanced Driving Assistance. This has been integrated into cars such as the 2018 LEAF to measure the speed of surrounding vehicles and automatically adjust your distance to them. It also keeps you centered within a lane. Further, the e-Pedal system enables operators to speed up, slow down, and even stop completely using only the accelerator.
The future of mobility is almost upon us! Nissan is ready to wow the world this week with their appearance at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES), which is scheduled to start today in Las Vegas. Occupying the stand at booth 5431, the manufacturer promises to highlight the following exciting advancements:
Brain-to-Vehicle Technology. B2V is set to be integrated into future automobile systems. It assists with driving by learning from the operator, literally reading mind waves and taking actions on your behalf, such as accelerating or braking. It can perform these functions 0.2 to 0.5 seconds faster on average than you’d be able to do it yourself!
The 2018 Nissan LEAF. This all-new, zero-emissions vehicle will lean on ProPILOT technologies to offer semi-autonomous driving. Additionally, the EV will feature an increased range of 150 miles on one charge, as well as improved power plant output of 147 HP and 236-lb.-ft. of torque.
The Nissan IMx. This concept vehicle is poised to change the way you drive. It’s fully autonomous, enabling owners to select the “PD Mode” and kick back and relax. From there, the car hides the steering wheel, reclines the seats, and the computer takes over all functions. More details are unknown at this time, but that may change at the conference!
Get ready for a revolution in the way we interact with our automobiles, Ahead of their planned demonstration at the CES 2018 show in Las Vegas, Nissan has announced the latest breakthrough in their Intelligent Mobility initiative—Brain-to-Vehicle technology (B2V).
If it sees mass adoption in the future, B2V will change the way Seattle commutes. The system actually reads the owner’s mind, detecting when the driver is thinking of performing a movement (accelerating, braking, or turning the steering wheel) and automatically does that function for them. Also, when put into autonomous mode, the new advancement will also adjust the in-cabin environment by predicting discomfort and using augmented reality to deliver relaxation.
B2V is a world-first system. It works by having the driver wear a brain-wave measuring device. These detections are then analyzed and processed by autonomous technology within the car. This enables it to take actions on your behalf that are 0.2 to 0.5 seconds quicker than you’d be able to manage on your own.

It’s not a dream or a sci-fi plot, but rather the future of automotive technology. This week, Nissan is set to showcase its Brain-to-Vehicle (or B2V) technology at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, where the automaker will demonstrate new research that will one day allow vehicles to interpret signals from a driver’s brain.
B2V is also the latest development in Nissan Intelligent Mobility, which is the company’s vision for transforming how cars are driven, powered and integrated into society. The research is cutting-edge and wildly innovative by taking a deeper look into brain decoding technology as a way to predict a driver’s actions, like turning the steering wheel or pressing on the accelerator. It can also detect discomfort and change the driving configuration or style when in autonomous mode.
But, B2V doesn’t end there. Nissan also claims that the technology is capable of augmenting reality by adjusting a vehicle’s internal environment so that it’s more peaceful and relaxing. For Seattle area commuters, imagine being able to change your daily view of gridlock and brake lights into something beautiful, like a grassy meadow or white sand beach with turquoise waters. It seems unbelievable or something only possible on the big screen. But, with Nissan pioneering B2V, the future of driving is now.

Last year, Nissan created a stir at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show by debuting a custom Rogue decked out like an X-Wing for the launch of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
This year, Nissan is at it again, but this time they turned to the dark side for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which opens nationwide on December 15. And instead of one vehicle, Nissan unveiled seven Star Wars-themed concept vehicles. The Force is definitely strong at the 2017 Los Angeles Auto Show!
The lineup of Nissansincludes the Rogue, Rogue Sport, Altima, Maxima and Titan. Each vehicle showcases its own distinctive design, which was created in collaboration between Lucasfilm and Vehicle Effects – a California-based company best-known for their custom cars in the latest Fast and Furious movies.
Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the Lucasfilm brain trust, which was influential in creating these Nissan show cars, which are drawing massive crowds in LA:
Unfortunately for Seattle area Star Wars fans, these concept vehicles are not for sale. However, they do celebrate a new world of technology, which are attracting consumers to many of Nissan’s latest models, like the highly-anticipated 2018 Kick or the next-generation Leaf.
