Nissan has announced today that cumulative sales of vehicles with its e-Power electrified powertrain surpassed 500,000 units at the end of March.

The e-Power system uses a highly efficient petrol engine to generate electricity for the electric motor that propels the vehicle. For customers, this delivers EV-like excitement, quietness and smooth acceleration, but with the confidence and convenience that comes with a fuel tank.

e-Power first debuted in Japan on the Note compact car in November 2016. Since then, the Note e-Power model has been very well received by customers. The Note claimed the best-selling car in Japan title in 2018.

In March 2018, an e-Power version of the popular Serena minivan was launched, which was followed by the all-new Kicks SUV e-Power  in June 2020. The Kicks e-Power also launched in some Asian markets. In December of the same year, the all-new Note was launched exclusively with the evolved, second-generation e-Power system.

In February 2021, the all-new Nissan Qashqai recently debuted in the European market with an e-Power model announced following the mild-hybrid model, marking the first offering of e-Power in the continent. The 2021 Auto Shanghai motor show is set to introduce e-Power technology in the China market.

In addition to powerful and responsive acceleration, Nissan says its e-Power models have been rated highly for driving performance and for features such as the ability to accelerate and decelerate just by using the accelerator pedal.

Nissan has set the goal to achieve carbon neutrality across its operations and the lifecycle of its products by 2050. As part of this effort, by the early 2030s every all-new Nissan vehicle offering in key markets will be electrified.
