Nissan Qashqai teased, will be offered with petrol generator hybrid system

Nissan Qashqai teased, will be offered with petrol generator hybrid system”

More than three million Qashqai have been sold across Europe since the first-generation model arrived in 2007, credited with creating the crossover segment.

Nissan's used the news to confirm powertrains that should help the brand meet ambitious electrification targets.

In fact, the all-new 2021 Nissan Qashqai is set to get two powertrain options from the get-go, including a 1.3-liter petrol engine with mild-hybrid technology and the company's innovative e-Power hybrid system. The lighter materials gives a 21kg weight saving over the outgoing model.

The e-Power hybrid drivetrain consists of a pair of electric motors, one mounted on the front and rear axles to make the vehicle four-wheel drive. According to the carmaker, this will bring drivers the instant response of an EV but without the range anxiety.

As for what sits inside the chassis, Nissan's outlined the new Qashqai will be available with both two-wheel and all-wheel drive, outlining that the former will sport MacPherson strut front suspension and a torsion beam rear.

Like many other manufacturers, Nissan has ditched diesel and the new auto will be available with a 1.3-litre petrol engine (with two power outputs and 12-volt mild hybrid assistance), plus an innovative e-POWER version.

While technical details are still thin on the ground, the latter offers full electric motor drive; i.e., the wheels are completely driven by the electric motor.

No dimensions have been revealed either but Nissan said it's retained the Mk2 Qashqai's proportions, which are "just right" and key in its success, enabling its use on urban roads and in tight parking spaces, while also giving excellent interior space. Models equipped with 20-inch wheels, as well as AWD versions, will be equipped with a more advanced multi-link setup. Efficiency will be further bolstered by an "aerodynamic" flat floor. The system will be able to read road signs and adapt the vehicle's speed accordingly and use data from the navigation system to slow the auto to the appropriate speed, whether it's a lower speed limit ahead, an approaching curve or an exit ramp with a tighter radius.

Nissan says a full unveiling of the new Qashqai will take place in spring 2021.
