A technology unique to Nissan, e-POWER combines a petrol engine, which charges the battery and an electric motor, which turns the wheels. It performs similarly to an electric car, reducing emissions and running costs, but because you don’t have to plug it in, there’s no change to your driving habits. In addition to the combustion engine, e-POWER also uses regenerative braking to help keep the battery charged.
Discover a new driving experience without changing your habits. Keep using fuel but enjoy the driving sensations of electric mobility as soon as you press the accelerator.
You don’t need to plug-in an e-POWER vehicle. The petrol engine produces energy that charges the battery when the vehicle needs it. The petrol engine produces energy that can either be directly supplied to the electric motor or to recharge the battery. The electric motor alone drives the vehicles wheels giving an electric feeling drive at all times.
The friction caused by braking produces energy, and e-POWER doesn't let all the energy usually lost through breaking, go to waste. The regenerative braking system on e-POWER converts kinetic energy from deceleration into electrical energy, and feeds it back to the battery, improving the fuel-efficiency.
The electric motor runs silently, and combined with the petrol engine, produces minimal emissions, so driving an e-POWER is a serene and pleasant experience.
With the wheels powered by an electric motor, you'll get the same instant torque and smooth acceleration that electric vehicle owners love. E-Pedal is ready for you when you’re in the mood for a fun and sporty drive.
Drive greener thanks to e-POWER technology. With reduced CO2 and particle emissions, it offers a smaller environmental footprint compared to conventional petrol-fuelled vehicles.
e-POWER skip the initial hurdles some have with electric vehicles. Because the battery is kept full by the petrol engine, you can begin long journeys free from worries of losing your charge. Simply refill at an everyday pump and you'll be back on the road.
With an e-POWER vehicle, you can go much further on a full-tank because the petrol engine is only used to charge the more efficient electric battery. The battery is also partly recharged with energy produced while braking, meaning far fewer trips to the pump, and far more savings for the long-term
With the flick of a switch, you can activate e-Pedal: a single pedal for accelerating and braking. e-Pedal removes the need to jump between two pedals in stop-start traffic, or when driving uphill. Pair this with the silent engine and you'll feel generally more in-control and relaxed behind the wheel.
