The Nissan Generation Next car ambassador programme supports people from all walks of life who could use a new Nissan car or van to follow their dream and to realise their potential of becoming Ireland’s next generation of leaders and champions.

“The programme presents a golden opportunity for Donegal’s young entrepreneurs, innovators, rising sports stars, musicians, artists, chefs and anyone who is passionate about what they do to get ahead on their journey to success with the backing and support of Nissan,” said Seamus McLaughlin, Dealer Principal at Letterkenny Nissan.
