New Nissan X-Trail e-POWER breaks cover

The next chapter of Nissan’s electrified product offensive takes shape with the launch of the all-new, fourth generation X-Trail. Almost seven million units of X-Trail have been sold globally, making it one of the world’s most popular family adventure vehicles.

For this new iteration, Nissan has drawn on the well-established DNA that runs through all three of the previous generations of X-Trail, its muscular design, flexible utility and advanced all-wheel drive capabilities and it will be available in both five and seven-seater configurations, offering a convenient option for days out with extended family or friends.

Central to Nissan’s electrification drive the new X-Trail will be available with Nissan’s unique e-POWER drivetrain.  Nissan’s e-POWER system is comprised of a high-output battery integrated with a petrol engine, power generator, inverter and 150kW front electric motor.

The unique element of e-POWER is that the petrol engine is used solely to generate electricity, whilst the wheels are always completely driven by the electric motor. This means the engine can always run within its optimal range, leading to superior fuel efficiency in urban settings.

Thanks to the pure electric motor drive, with the e-Power system there’s no delay as with an internal combustion engine or traditional hybrid. The instant response delivers exhilarating high torque feel and agile acceleration to make overtaking or merging onto a highway easier.

“The move towards electrified driving is well and truly underway in Ireland and Nissan continues to lead the way. With over 10 years’ experience of selling EV’s our expertise makes switching to electrified driving a whole lot easier.  Our growing range of electrified vehicles enables drivers to make a fully informed choice that is right for them, no matter where they sit on their journey towards 100% electric driving and a more sustainable future.

Nissan is charging towards an electrified future and we are committed to ensuring that 75% of our sales mix will be electrified by the end of 2023.  Today’s unveiling of the all-new X-trail brings us even closer towards achieving that ambition” said Seamus Morgan, Managing Director of Nissan Ireland. “

As with the 100% electric Nissan LEAF, Ariya and JUKE Hybrid, the new Nissan X-Trail is equipped with Nissan’s e-pedal, enabling the driver to launch, accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator.

In addition to e-Pedal a new all-wheel drive system designed to work with Nissan’s electrified powertrains is introduced on the all-new X-Trail in Europe. e-4ORCE is an electric motor drive system which will deliver reassuring traction and confident acceleration in all conditions thanks to Nissan’s most advanced all-wheel control technology.
