Nissan’s most technologically advanced SUV to arrive in Australia will be here soon, with the Nissan X-Trail e-Power with e-4ORCE delivering an EV-like drive experience without ever needing to plug in.

Unlike conventional hybrid systems, Nissan’s innovative e-POWER technology delivers a constant EV-like drive experience thanks to the driven wheels being powered only by the electric motors, so response is always instant, linear and smooth.

The X-Trail’s e-POWER with e-4ORCE system is comprised of a high-output 2.1kWh battery integrated with a variable compression ratio petrol engine, power generator, inverter and twin electric motors (150kW front axle, 100kW rear axle with a combined system output of 157kW). This unique powertrain means that power to the wheels comes only from the electric motors, which results in instant, linear response to the accelerator, and a claimed impressive fuel efficiency of just 6.1L/100km (combined).

The power for the electric motors and battery is generated by a highly advanced variable compression turbocharged petrol engine which runs quietly in the background to feed the battery, which then supplies power to the electric motors via an inverter.

The e-4ORCE twin-motor all-wheel drive system delivers reassuring traction and confident acceleration in all conditions thanks to Nissan’s most advanced all-wheel-control technology. The system doesn’t just unlock capability, but also delivers better grip, traction and turning ability, enhancing ride and handling.
