e-POWER: electrified and unplugged
Nissan’s new e-POWER technology is a unique take on electrification that is lifting the Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail to new heights...
New Nissan Qashqai e-POWER
In 2007, the Nissan Qashqai pioneered the crossover market with its blend of hatchback styling, compact urban-friendly dimensions and versatile SUV practicality.
Since then, millions have been sold globally, ensuring that the Nissan Qashqai has repeatedly topped the list of bestselling crossovers in the UK.
Now, the third-generation Nissan Qashqai offers 504 litres of boot space, five comfortable seats, head-turning style and a wealth of in-car tech. But, it also has another trick up its sleeve: e-POWER.
Nissan's innovative e-POWER technology is a unique take on electrification – using solely an electric motor to drive the wheels, while a 1.5-litre petrol engine works with a 1.97kW battery to provide power. The result: EV driving feel with instant torque, smooth acceleration, and up to 53.3mpg (WLTP combined).
Out on the road, the Nissan Qashqai e-POWER boasts 188hp and 330Nm of instant electric torque, while e-Pedal Step (also seen in the 100% electric Nissan ARIYA) makes town driving easier, with acceleration and deceleration controlled through just one pedal.
All-new Nissan X-Trail
The all-new Nissan X-Trail has been a staple of Nissan’s line-up since its introduction in 2000. Over its three generations it has built a reputation as a capable go-anywhere machine and a cosseting family car wrapped in one all-round stylish package.
Now, there’s an all-new fourth generation model. Up-front, the all-new Nissan X-Trail features a bold V-Motion grille that works with slim LED headlights to offer sleek yet rugged SUV styling, while the high-quality interior offers two crisp 12.3in screens and a 10.8in head-up screen to help keep your eyes alert.
A wealth of systems like Virtual Personal Assistant and ProPilot Tech will help keep you safe, while the option of seven seats means there’s lots of room for the family.
Just like the Nissan Qashqai, the all-new Nissan X-Trail uses e-POWER technology, but with the option of Nissan’s intelligent e-4ORCE four-wheel-drive system – as found on the all-electric Nissan ARIYA. e-4ORCE adds a second electric motor on the rear axle to offer improved acceleration, cornering and braking. Perfect for families looking for an adventure.
