The all-new Nissan Qashqai e-POWER has shot to the top spot as the best-selling car in Ireland in March with its instant popularity underlining how the innovative e-POWER system has revolutionised hybrid driving.
The electrified crossover is proving to be a massive hit with drivers who want to enjoy the benefits of EV driving without ever having to plug in the car to recharge it.
The Nissan Qashqai has been a family favourite since Nissan invented the crossover in 2007 and the arrival of e-POWER has catapulted it straight back to the number one spot with 742 new buyers snapping up the car in March alone.
Nissan’s e-POWER technology offers a unique solution to drivers who are not quite ready to make the move to a fully electric vehicle, but who want a spacious family car that drives like an EV, that optimises fuel efficiency and that lowers CO2 emissions.
The unique element of Nissan’s e-POWER system is that the petrol engine is solely used to charge a battery that powers an electric motor to drive the wheels. The pure electric motor is the sole source of power, enabling the car to drive in electric mode 100% of the time.
It provides a very responsive driving experience that is incredibly similar to driving a fully electric vehicle, without having to think about range or recharging the car. It enables drivers to be eco-minded, to be sustainable and to optimise fuel efficiency without ever having to compromise on driving pleasure.
Nissan now offers a full range of electric, hybrid, and mild hybrid vehicles that allow drivers to find the car that is right for them, wherever they sit on their journey towards 100% electric driving.
The all-new Nissan Qashqai e-POWER is packed with technology and innovative safety features. It has been designed to meet the needs of tech-savvy customers and to be a partner in an increasingly connected world, offering seamless, personal assistance and responses. e-Pedal also allows drivers to accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator.
