Auto test: the Nissan Qashqai e-Power, electric and autonomous

Like the Leaf, the Qashqai E-Power can benefit from the driving to a single pedal ordered by a button on the console. When the foot is lifted from the accelerator, moderate braking is applied which decelerates the car until you roll in step (~ 5 km/h). Its use quickly becomes intuitive for a softer and relaxing driving in the city, while maximizing the possibilities of regeneration of the battery, since at each deceleration and braking, the kinetic energy is recovered.

Nissan E-Power: electric extension of autonomy without recharging

Nissan has just launched the E-Power in Japan, a new technology on board the Nissan Note combining an electric motor with an extension of thermal autonomy. Particularity: no need to go through the plug to recharge it !

Looking to diversify its technology portfolio, Nissan has just launched the Nissan Note E-Power in Japan, an electric car exclusively powered by a sender sender.

On the technical side, the system uses the same electric motor as the Nissan Leaf, offering up to 80 kW and 254 Nm of torque. This is associated with a very small lithium-ion battery of only 1.5 kWh, 20 times less than that embedded in the latest generation of Leaf.

And beyond the tiny battery capacity, the Nissan system is distinguished from that embedded on the BMW i3 or the Opel Ampera by the fact that it does not offer recharge on a power outlet, The battery feeding only thanks to the thermal range, a three-cylinder petrol engine of 1.2 liters.

In terms of performance, the Japanese manufacturer announces consumption comparable to that of a hybrid car of similar size, or about 2.7 l/100 km according to the Japanese cycle (JC08), even more optimistic than our current NEDC cycle.

For Nissan, the advantage of such a system is above all economical. The battery remaining today the main cost source of an electric vehicle, the choice of a minimal size pack associated with a small petrol engine operating with almost constant speed makes it possible to minimize costs while providing comparable consumption performance to other hybrid models. Available in three finish levels in Japan, the Nissan Note E-Power is offered from 1.772.000 yen, about 15.500 euros.

As for whether this Nissan Note E-Power will one day be marketed in Europe, nothing is less certain since the Japanese manufacturer has stopped the production of the model since the end of September on the old continent. However, we could see E-Power technology appear on other models since the note shares its platform with other models of the Renault Nissan alliance such as the Micra or the Clio. To be continued…

Nissan innovates by providing its new Qashqai with E-Power technology, a hybrid system that offers dynamic, efficient and silent driving. Its price starts at € 38,200.

Nissan Qashqai e-Power

The new Qashqai is the First model in Europe of Nissan to be equipped with the E-Power motorization. Particularly innovative, it gives the impression of driving a 100 % electric vehicle.

This is the secret: the e-Power system is made up of a high power battery, a generator, an inverter, a 140 kW electric motor (190 hp) and a 3-cylinder Turbo petrol engine 1.5 liter at variable compression rate of 158 hp. The petrol engine generates electricity which can be transmitted via the inverter to the battery, the electric motor or both, depending on the driving situation.

L’Originality of this motorization is that the electric motor is the only power source transmitted on the front axle. It therefore offers an instant and linear response with its 330 Nm torque, hence an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7’’9.

A sophisticated petrol engine

This exclusive technology thus represents a Attractive alternative to traditional hybrids. No need for a classic gearbox and climbs in thermal engine or CVT and its sometimes throbbing noise. Most of the time, the Qashqai e-Power evolves in silence, but without needing to recharge.

At the heart of the E-Power system is the famous Variable compression petrol engine (Between 8: 1 and 14: 1) which adjusts to offer the best balance between performance and economy depending on the engine load.

The system key, called Linear Tune, controls the engine and gradually increases its diet to meet energy needs as the car accelerates, ensuring that there is no discrepancy between performance and the sound level felt by passengers.

Power, efficiency, silence

In fact, in normal driving, without rushing the car, the heat engine is rarely heard and, in any case, its diet does not go up high in the towers, especially since it is powerful enough to produce the energy Electric necessary effortless.

E-pedal in the service of driving comfort

Like the Leaf, the Qashqai E-Power can benefit from the driving to a single pedal ordered by a button on the console. When the foot is lifted from the accelerator, moderate braking is applied which decelerates the car until you roll in step (~ 5 km/h). Its use quickly becomes intuitive for a softer and relaxing driving in the city, while maximizing the possibilities of regeneration of the battery, since at each deceleration and braking, the kinetic energy is recovered.

4.42 m long, 1.83 m wide and built on a wheelbase of 2.67 m, the Qashqai e-Power can transport 5 passengers and their luggage in an environment and a very appreciable space, the trunk evolving of 504 at 1,582 liters.

His road behavior is remarkable and his driving aids are capable of overcoming most of the problems that the driver can encounter.

New Nissan Qashqai E-Power- The pleasure of electric without recharging

Pioneer of Modern SUVs, Nissan launches the third generation of Qashqai, the Qashqai e-Power. The new Qashqai is the first model in Europe to be equipped with the EXCLOSE E-POWER technology of Nissan which offers the pleasant, flexible and fluid driving experience of a 100 % electric engine but without needing to recharge. In line with the campaign of the new hybrid juke, the film directed by Jan Wentz (Quad), with powerful visual narration, takes up the same advertising rhetoric “who said that” to shake up the received ideas on electrification and position Nissan as the brand with the most daring electrified crossovers on the market. This new creative territory is available in all Nissan campaigns.
