Today, Nissan has set its course firmly towards a sustainable future with the presentation of a new six-part electrified line-up arriving this Summer. Leveraging its unmatched electric expertise and leadership, Nissan is supercharging its shift to electrified mobility with the brand's most exciting and comprehensive offering to date.
Setting the benchmark for an electrified offering, Nissan is delivering more choice, more excitement, and more accessibility than ever before. With the introduction of hybrid technology on JUKE, e-POWER on Qashqai and X-Trail and the launch of Ariya, a pure EV, this summer, 2022 marks the year when Nissan will offer levels of electrification to match customer’s needs.
Retaining the JUKE personality, the JUKE Hybrid brings customers a truly integrated electrified driving experience, with a multi-modal powertrain and smart gearbox offering pure-electric power or a combination of combustion engine and electric motor. Nissan’s innovative e-Pedal Step system allows the driver to accelerate and decelerate the car to a slow creep-speed (~3mph) – enhancing comfort and convenience on the move.
Building on its heritage as the world’s first crossover model, the all-new Qashqai elevates the crossover driving experience with Nissan’s unique e-POWER powertrain technology. A 100% electric-driven motor powers the wheels for instant and linear acceleration, while a small combustion engine recharges the battery on the move – offering even more confidence behind the wheel.
The all-new X-Trail takes a bold new approach to the intrepid Nissan Crossover family vehicle, equipped with Nissan’s innovative e-POWER drivetrain and e-4ORCE all-wheel- control technology to power up family adventures.
The world’s first mass-market EV, LEAF initiated a revolution and set the blueprint for modern electric vehicles – with more than 577,000 LEAF sold globally and over 9 billion zero-emission kilometres driven since its 2010 launch. The 2022 LEAF brings an even more compelling design, seamless connectivity and efficient powertrain options with LEAF 2022.
Marking a new chapter in Nissan’s electrification journey, Ariya is Nissan’s first all-electric coupé-crossover and the first vehicle to employ the ingenious CMF-EV platform developed by Nissan for the Alliance. Redefining fully electric driving, Ariya will also feature e-4ORCE, the perfect balance of power and control. The twin-motor system’s seamless power distribution delivers instant response for effortless acceleration in a variety of driving scenarios.
The next generation of Nissan’s fully electric compact LCV offering, the all-new Townstar is designed to be a reliable, efficient and sustainable business partner, optimised to meet customers’ ever-changing needs. Offered with a fully electric powertrain delivering 177mls of range under the WLTP combined cycle, as well as a suite of 20+ technology features, the all-new Townstar is ideal for last-mile deliveries. This next generation compact van helps to future-proof sustainable business operations and accelerate the transition towards electrification.
"Nissan is charging towards an electrified future, with Europe leading the way. We have established a clear direction through Ambition 2030 and with our new electrified line-up we are truly paving the way to a sustainable future," said Guillaume Cartier, Chairperson, Nissan Africa, Middle East, India, Europe and Oceania Region.
