The next generation Nissan Qashqai will receive two hybridsDecember 5, 2019
A new version of the crossover will appear on the market in 2020. While details are not disclosed, but rumors are already circulating about two versions of the hybrid system. In addition, the new Qashqai will receive the next-generation ProPilot proprietary suite.
The new Qashqai will be based on the latest CMF platform from the Renault-Nissan Alliance. The main feature will be the ability to use electrified systems. According to Nissan vice president of product planning, Ponza Pandicutira, the company is still exploring the European market for hybrid cars.
According to preliminary information, one of the versions will receive a classic hybrid ePower from Nissan. It will be based on one of the gasoline engines, paired with an electric motor. In the second version, a hybrid from Mitsubishi will be used, using an electric motor as the basis. A gasoline engine is used as a generator.
The main problem for the company from Japan is the adaptation of technologies for the European market. In the native country, the average speed of cars on the highway is 90-100 km / h. In Europe, this speed is 130 – 140 km / h. In this mode, the battery discharges much faster, which reduces the efficiency of hybrids, especially in the version from Mitsubishi.
In addition to the new power units, the third-generation Nissan Qashqai will receive the proprietary ProPilot active safety system complex, as well as modern multimedia. Dimensions will remain the same, and the design will be more modern.
Meanwhile, information about the new Nissan Armada SUV became known. The car received a comfortable and luxurious interior. Buyers may be interested in an attractive price tag.
