Nissan e-power vehicles to be available in Australia in 2022
Nissan has confirmed its e-POWER technology will be coming to Australia, with the innovative hybrid technology to launch in 2022.
The company says that its e-POWER system is unlike existing hybrids where the wheels are powered by an electric motor and a petrol engine. Instead, e-POWER technology sees the driving wheels powered exclusively by an electric motor. The petrol engine is used only to charge the vehicle’s battery when necessary.
Similar to the LEAF and LEAF e+ EVs, e-POWER vehicles will use Nissan’s e-Pedal drive, enabling drivers to accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator pedal.
“We call e-POWER a best-of-both-worlds solution, offering a driver the key benefits of an EV drive experience without ever having to plug in,” said Adam Paterson, Nissan Australia Managing Director.
“While a traditional hybrid adds battery power to an internal combustion engine, e-POWER delivers an EV-like driving experience, including exhilarating acceleration and near-silent operation, all while drastically reducing your fuel use and emissions.
“We are looking forward to our customers experiencing this future-facing technology for themselves.”
Nissan Australia says it will introduce e-POWER technology in 2022.
