    What is Qashqai e-Power and how does it work?

    Nissan has developed the e-Power system to deliver a responsive drive with quiet, smooth acceleration - just like any normal EV car. But this is no conventional EV system. This is a hybrid system with all the added benefits of an electric vehicle.

During its 15 years on the market, Nissan Qashqai has created its own niche as a compact crossover with stellar family-friendly credentials. With the new Nissan e-Power drivetrain, the Nissan Qashqai takes another step forward ahead of it's competitors.

What is e-Power?

Nissan has developed the e-Power system to deliver a responsive drive with quiet, smooth acceleration – just like any normal electric car. This hybrid system provides all the added benefits of an electric vehicle, without the charging time. The key element about the e-Power is the petrol engine is not connected to the wheels. The only job of the petrol engine is to charge the battery. The battery then powers the electric motor to move the wheels.

The e-Power delivers:

  • Massive torque almost instantly on acceleration, juke like an electric vehicle
  • Quiet operation when driving, just like an electric vehicle
  • Fuel efficiency that’s compared to leading hybrid vehicles

How does the Nissan Qashqai e-Power powertrain work?

The New Qashqai e-Power’s drivetrain is made up of three key components:

  • a highly efficient petrol engine (1.5-litre, 157PS)
  • a lithium-ion high-performance battery
  • a 140 kW electric motor

The petrol engine provides the energy to charge the battery. The lithium-ion battery then drives the electric motor. This means the e-Power Qashqai will have the benefits of an electric vehicle, such as instant acceleration, but the convenience of a conventional petrol engine which can be fuelled in a couple of minutes. The engine then keeps the battery topped-up, so there’s no lengthy wait at the services to re-charge the battery – even on long journeys.

In addition, this e-Powered Qashqai features the e-Pedal, the highly effective one-pedal format which makes driving simpler and super energy-efficient. In fact, it’s so efficient, the 157PS petrol engine ultimately produces 190PS of combined power from the electric motor, so you can enjoy quick, smooth acceleration and plenty of speed when it's time to overtake.
