New Nissan Note is going electric
Nissan unveiled its new Nissan NOTE reserved, for now, for the Japanese market
This revamped version of Nissan’s best-selling Note compact car is a bid to win over the market from Toyota and Honda. For the first time, it will be offered exclusively with the e-POWER electric motor. This engine is at the heart of the brand’s electrification strategy. This is the first full model change of the vehicle in eight years.
The redesigned Nissan Note features a unique e-Power hybrid technology which uses a gasoline engine to power the battery that runs the car, keeping emissions low.
The e-POWER engine consists of an electric motor, which drives the vehicle. But to avoid having to recharge it on the electricity network, the vehicle has a thermal generator on board, which produces the necessary electricity.
Nissan’s V-motion grille features in between the slim-line headlights as character lines extend from the front to the side profile. Character lines transition from the sides through the slim, horizontally continuous rear combination lamps. The Note is quite spacious and comfortable considering that it is a hatchback, with zero gravity seats and large armrests which make a long drive comfortable. Ample legroom and headspace, reclining seats, and a surprisingly spacious trunk characterize the interior. Electrification has considerably reduced the influence of mechanical elements in the passenger compartment. The result: an unprecedented interior space dedicated to comfort. Space is thus completely cleared thanks to a central console and a reduced gear selector.
