Nissan reveals latest e-POWER electrified powertrain technology at Auto Shanghai 2021
At Auto Shanghai 2021, Nissan is delivering on its commitment to meet the ever-evolving needs of consumers in China who aspire for more efficiency, more technology and enhanced connectivity. The all-new Nissan X-Trail crossover is the latest to be unveiled as part of this commitment. As a segment leader and best-seller in China, the X-Trail is a key model in the Nissan NEXT transformation plan. The model offers an attractive package of dynamic performance and tech to seamlessly support customer lifestyles.
The X-trail elevates the SUV segment through cutting-edge design, dedication to detail, and advanced technologies that showcase intelligent driving and enhanced connectivity, defining the company’s role as a leader in mobility solutions. The all-new Nissan X-Trail will be launched in China in the second half of 2021. Along with the X-Trail, Nissan introduced the latest e-POWER electrified powertrain technology, positioned to open the next chapter of electrification for Nissan in the China market.
The all-electric Nissan Ariya, which made its China debut last year at the Auto China 2020, is also featured at the booth. As a key vehicle in Nissan’s electrified strategy for China and one of nine electrified models to be brought to the market by 2025, the Ariya brings stunning design presence, powerful performance and connected technologies as the latest icon of Nissan Intelligent Mobility.
“As China stands at the forefront of defining the future of mobility, we, as Nissan, are ready to drive forward with innovations in connected, autonomous, and electrified technologies,” said Ashwani Gupta, Nissan’s chief operating officer. “Nissan will continue to bring the best of today’s most innovative technologies along with the benefits of future mobility to our customers in China.”
Nissan’s e-POWER technology
Nissan’s e-POWER technology features a 100% electric motor-driven system that delivers responsive acceleration, smooth deceleration, and quietness similar to an EV, while removing the need for external charging thanks to an on-board gasoline engine that charges the battery pack when necessary. Since its introduction in Japan, e-POWER has proven to be a hit among consumers with a variety of e-POWER models expanding in the market. So far, over 500,000 vehicles equipped with e-POWER have been sold.
e-POWER energy efficiency is comparable to hybrid electric vehicles and contributes to the NEV roadmap defined by the Chinese government and aligns with Nissan’s global target to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the life cycle* of its products by 2050. As part of this effort, by the early 2030s every all-new Nissan vehicle offering in key markets will be electrified.
