Nissan Combines Craftsmanship with Robots for 2 Tone JUKE

From cutting-edge technologies to hand-painted doors and vibrant colour combinations, Nissan illuminates the craftsmanship behind two-tone, personalised colour options that bring the bold personality of the JUKE to life. A two-tone combination gives the JUKE its distinctive edge and helps drivers perfectly express their own style.

The task of developing the comprehensive range of body colours fell to Nissan’s colour design studio at Nissan Design Europe in London, while the Nissan Sunderland plant handled the precision painting process. The team at NDE in London identified the colours and developed two-tone combinations that would make up the JUKE’s full colour palette. Teams worked for over a year before the first customer car was painted with a rigorous trial process to ensure the accuracy of the colour.

Working in measurements of less than a hair’s width, microscopic precision is key to success as Nissan elevates the vehicle painting process into an art form. There are clear specifications for how the colour should appear on the car, how much paint should be applied, and the quality of the paint required. To guarantee a flawless finish every time a rigorous cleaning regime is required. The tiniest specks of dust must be removed carefully to ensure the paint can be applied on perfect surface. Paint shop operators also wear lint free clothing to avoid contaminating the environment and special lighting is used to allow highly trained inspectors to identify and remove any imperfections before they complete the process.

Reflected in the richness of every two-tone option, this process champions attention to detail in every respect, with the body of each two-tone JUKE receiving a comprehensive series of treatments. From the electrocoat primer and careful dipping procedure, to the sealant and underbody paint application, every stage is optimised to deliver the perfect blend of durability and beauty.

Using Nissan Sunderland’s four state-of-the-art paint shops installed as part of a EUR 111 million investment for JUKE, Nissan’s skilled operators apply several coats of paint to the JUKE. The high-tech procedure ensures each vehicle leaves with a lustrous, eye-catching presence to match its bold personality.

The dual-tone trend is driven by a need for personalisation, where motorists want to express their own unique style through their vehicles. To meet customer demand, Nissan developed a distinctive exterior colour palette through months of design, planning and engineering. Two-tone tailoring is a colour trend which is seeing a resurgence among car buyers; 30% of customers choose a two-tone paint combination for their new JUKE, the most popular being Pearl White with a black roof. Nissan now offers 11 Body colours, in combination with three Roof colours, offering a total of 15 two-tone colours combinations. Customers can easily choose their favourite combination using the JUKE online configurator, providing a 360-degree preview of the exterior colour option selected.
