Feel electrified driving pleasure with our Qashqai e-POWER powertrain. No need to recharge. This unique technology consists of a petrol engine that constantly recharges a more responsive battery-operated motor, that powers the wheels 100% of the time. You get a quieter & enhanced fuel-efficient drive compared to a traditional combustion engine.
Available for the first time with New Nissan e-POWER technology, Qashqai gives you the experience of a unique, electrified and unplugged drive.
A technology unique to Nissan. e-POWER uses a petrol engine and lithium ion battery to power an electric motor – the electric motor alone drives the wheels. It responds similarly to an electric car, providing instant torque and also has lower tailpipe emissions and running costs compared to a traditional combustion engine, but without the need to plug it in. In addition to the petrol engine, e-POWER also uses regenerative braking to help keep the battery topped up.
Why choose e-POWER?
At traffic lights, junctions or when overtaking, e POWER delivers seamless acceleration that's ideal for city driving – all from a low rev range, which makes it quiet and efficient . Choose from a range of driving modes to suit the driving situation: D (Drive) mode, for a driving experience suitable in all conditions and B (Braking) mode, which enhances regenerative braking, boosts fuel economy and reduces brake wear in the city.
