The new QASHQAI e-POWER has arrived to offer a fresh new way of driving. With the e-POWER, you can enjoy an electrified drive without the need to plug in to charge. Nissan e-POWER is a unique new technology that allows drivers to enjoy a quieter, more responsive and even more efficient way to explore the city. Differing from a traditional hybrid which can be driven by the electric motor or petrol engine, the e-POWER is driven by the electric motor 100% of the time.
A unique driving experience
e-POWER comes fitted with an automatic gear box and uses a battery charged by the petrol engine, so there's no need to plug in to charge - your adventures don't need to pause. The petrol engine constantly recharges the more responsive battery-operated motor, powering the wheels 100% of the time. Not only is this quieter than a traditional combustion engine, you can enjoy enhanced fuel-efficiency too.
Designed for the city
The Nissan e-POWER is the perfect companion for exploring those busy city streets. Instant responsiveness, seamless acceleration from a low rev range means traffic lights, junctions and overtaking feels powerful but smooth and quiet. There are a range of driving modes available so you can make the most out of every driving situation. Drive mode ensures the best driving experience in all conditions, whilst Braking mode enhanced regenerative braking, boosts fuel economy and helps to reduce brake wear - ideal for built up areas.
Simplify drives with the e-Pedal Step
The optional e-Pedal Step is a unique way to simplify your electric driving even further so you can enjoy more comfortable journeys. The e-Pedal Step lets you accelerate and decelerate using just one pedal. By only using one pedal, tasks such as judging distances, decelerating when going downhill and stopping at traffic lights have become even more convenient. Simply easing off the accelerator creates a deceleration force comparable to stepping on the brake pedal. When stopped, the hydraulic brake system is activated to keep the car stationary.
