This is the moment a family hatchback travelled down a hill – in the world’s biggest ZORB.

British engineers at Nissan spent two months creating the giant inflatable bubble, which has a six-metre diameter.

They inflated the zorb around the Nissan Note at the top of a hill before letting it roll down.

The CarZorb, which is made up of two inflatable layers to shield the Note from outside dangers, went down the steep hill at speeds of 20mph before coming to a standstill.

Nissan built the zorb to highlight the safety shield technology of the Note, which is built in Sunderland.

The stunt took place at a military facility in the UK.

Bastien Schupp, vice president strategy and marketing at Nissan, said, “The Nissan Note has been carefully engineered to provide motorists with a whole range of technology that creates a protective bubble around you and your car.

“Our Safety Shield technology in particular is unrivalled amongst other small family cars.

“Creating a life size CarZorb to highlight the technology is an exciting and memorable way of reminding people about the benefits of Nissan’s Safety Shield.”
