Nissan Qashqai powertrains

Let us focus on Nissan’s mild hybrid powertrain first. First, it is not an electric vehicle or a hybrid. The way it works is through a powertrain that can recover energy from the braking process and store it away in its lithium battery.

All this energy is then reused in the Nissan Qashqai’s electrical processes. Now let us focus on Nissan’s unique e-POWER powertrain.

The powertrain on Nissan Qashqai with e-POWER works very differently and it is an innovation unique to Nissan, although not fully electric it has a fuel engine designed to serve one purpose, to charge a 100% electric motor which then powers the wheels 100% of the time.

An electrified experience, but unplugged, you get the instant acceleration and full torque of an electric vehicle but without the need to plug it in and recharge it.

Nissan Qashqai tech

But the Qashqai’s innovation isn’t limited to its powertrains. Whichever model you choose, you’ll find a car that’s brimming with the latest tech, ensuring the very best connectivity options and driver safety systems.

Some examples? Well take the 10.8in head-up display on selected grades which sits on the windscreen providing navigation and road information within the driver’s sight line. Then there’s ProPILOT Assist.

This is a clever active cruise control safety system that helps keep you centred in your lane at a safe distance from the traffic in front. And then there’s a ton of “nice-to-haves” too.

Take the Voice Controlled Personal Assistant as an example. It utilises Amazon Alexa which allows interaction with your car from the comfort of your home, or with home from the comfort of your Qashqai.
