The new Nissan X-Trail made its debut at the Shanghai auto show today. It stands on the same platform as the Nissan Qashqai, but is over 20 centimeters longer (4.65 meters). Incidentally, the fourth generation X-Trail has been on sale in the United States since October 2020. The suv has Nissan Roque there.
Electric Nissan X-Trail E-Power with combustion engine
It is not yet known exactly which engine variants will come to Europe. We only know this from the E-Power. That semi-electric powertrain is already in the Nissan Qashqai. It consists of a 158 hp petrol engine and a 190 hp electric motor. Only the latter actually drives the wheels. The petrol engine functions as a generator to generate electricity. One pedal driving, as in the Nissan Leaf, is possible.
The benefits, not the burdens of a fully electric car
According to Nissan, the E-Power technology is ideal for customers who are not yet ready for a fully electrically powered car (a Nissan Ariya, for example), but want to take advantage of its benefits. Nissan doesn’t reveal anything about the fuel consumption of the Nissan X-Trail E-Power, but that will undoubtedly be quite low for such a large car.
