Nissan X-Trail e-POWER with e-4ORCE AWD SUV

Nissan HAS JUST launched a hybrid version of its popular X-Trail. A hybrid with a difference. Its called e-POWER with e-4ORCE

2023 Nissan X-TRAIL Ti-L e-POWER with e-4ORCE profile

The e-4ORCE refers to twin electric motors that drive all four wheels. That is similar to other e-based hybrids

Where the difference comes in is that e-POWER refers to a turbocharged petrol engine that charges the small 2.1Kw/h battery.

The 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine acts as the perfect generator and operates at all times in optimal efficiency.

The difference with this hybrid is that the SUV always acts like an electric vehicle, with instant torque available, but without the associated heavy batteries, recharging issues, and range anxiety.

Smaller batteries means less environmental damage as well.

Chevrolet had something similar a few years ago in the Volt, but not as advanced as the Nissan e-POWER system.

The hybrid comes in AWD versions only of the Ti and Ti-L models

Pricing is from $54,190 through to $57,190 plus the usual costs.
