e-POWER hits 100,000 sales

e-POWER to the people! Nissan’s unique and innovative e-POWER hits 100,000 sales in Europe

 

Since its debut in September 2022, more than 100,000 customers have taken delivery of Nissan’s innovative e-POWER vehicles. To date, 65,367 Qashqais and 34,663 X-Trails equipped with this powertrain have been sold in Europe.

More than one in five of those sales have been in the UK, where 21,026 e-POWER models have found homes with customers (18,591 Qashqai and 2,435 X-Trail).

What sets e-POWER apart is that the wheels are solely driven by an electric motor. This means the drive is effortless, smooth and quiet – much like a full electric vehicle. Indeed, e-POWER customers’ feedback shows that they particularly appreciate the quietness and easy driving characteristics of the powertrain.

The advanced and efficient petrol engine within the e-POWER system is used only to generate electricity, which charges the on-board battery and powers the wheels through the electric motor.

When low power is required to drive the vehicles and when the battery has enough power, the electric motor driving the wheels is only using electricity from the battery.

If more power is needed, the engine generates electricity to power the electric motor and charge the battery. When maximum power is required, the electric motor takes electricity from both the engine and from the battery. Additionally, any time power regeneration is possible, energy from vehicle motion is sent back to the battery.

In addition, electrical energy generation is controlled according to road conditions. When road noise increases due to surface conditions and vehicle speed, the engine switches on to charge the e-POWER battery pack. This reduces the need for the engine to operate under otherwise quieter conditions.

“We are so proud that our Qashqai and X-Trail customers recognise the advantages of our unique e-POWER technology – both through the efficiency and the superior drive experience it offers.

“To reach this milestone since e-POWER’s introduction in September 2022 is an outstanding achievement and a testament to the bold, innovative spirit of our product planning and engineering functions,” said Arnaud Charpentier, Region Vice President, Product Strategy & Pricing, Nissan AMIEO (Africa, Middle East, India, Europe & Oceania) region.

“e-POWER is a key component of Nissan’s electrification strategy, representing the perfect option for customers who are not quite ready to switch to a 100 per cent electric vehicle, but want to enjoy the effortless progress that only electric motor driven wheels can provide,” said David Moss, Senior Vice President, Region Research and Development, Nissan’s AMIEO region.

He added: “From the first unveiling to an incredible 100,000 e-POWER vehicles on the road, our journey continues with Nissan’s e-POWER – the gateway technology to an EV drive.”

Nissan’s unique technology is moving beyond Europe, hitting the road in Australia and New Zealand in both vehicles, and in Qashqai in Morocco.

Dynamic energy flow

To celebrate this milestone and show the intricate inner workings of e-POWER, Nissan is using projection technology that maps the dynamic energy flow directly on to the exterior of a Nissan Qashqai and X-Trail model.

Serving as the blueprint of this technological spectacle are 3D models of the e-POWER engine and drivetrain.

These digital designs transform each vehicle into a canvas for innovation using anamorphic projections, and provide audiences with a rare glimpse into the workings of e-POWER and how its unique configuration delivers a responsive, smooth, and quiet drive thanks to the wheels being 100% driven by the electric motor.

J Edgar & Son Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 522976). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allows J Edgar & Son Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only. We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to the manufacturer lender linked directly to the particular franchise you are purchasing your vehicle from, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and manufacturer lenders linked directly to the franchises that we represent may also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
