Boosting all Qashqai variants at launch is a new 1.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine shared between several Renault and Mercedes-Benz cars, to replace the old Qashqai’s 2.0-litre engine, used in various guises for almost 15 years.
The new turbo mill is developed 110kW Y 250Nm – up to 4kW/50Nm – and drives the front wheels only through a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), with no further six-speed manual option.
While it lacks the mild hybrid system available in Europe, Australian market petrol Qashqai models still manage a claimed fuel economy figure of 6.1 liters per 100km in combined driving, down from 6.9l/100km from the previous model.
An E-Power Hybrid (below) will be available at a later date (click here for full details), which uses a 115 kW 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine as a generator to recharge a pack of batteries, which in turn feeds a 140kW/330Nm electric motor on the front axle.
Nissan’s design contrasts with Toyota’s, which allows the wheels of its vehicles to be powered by gasoline and/or electric motors. According to Nissan, E-Power offers “[the] driving experience associated with a pure EV [electric vehicle]but no need to recharge.
Previously, the E-Power was due in showrooms in late 2022; Ride has contacted Nissan Australia to confirm the latest update on the timing of the launch. The price of the hybrid has not yet been confirmed.
