Nissan have taken the next step in their electrified product offensive, and it comes in the form of the all-new, fourth generation X-Trail. Nissan have sold almost 7 million units of the X-Trail since it first launched, and for the next model they have drawn on the well-established DNA that runs through all three of the previous generations.
The new X-Trail will be available in both five and seven seater configurations, offering a convenient option for large families.
Customers with a taste for adventure will savour the enhanced dynamic performance and advanced electrification technologies that the new generation of X-Trail offers, as well as its muscular design, flexible utility and advanced all-wheel drive capabilities brought forward from previous models.
“Replacing an icon like the X-Trail is a huge responsibility. It has established itself as a vehicle for families to share adventures in, so we know what our customers appreciate. For the fourth generation X-Trail, we will give them the capacity for adventure, with an advanced electrified all-wheel drive powertrain, combined with intuitive and convenient technology,” said Francois Bailly, Senior Vice President, Chief Planning Officer, for Nissan’s AMIEO Region.
The new X-Trail will be the second model in Nissan’s European range to be equipped with the brand’s innovative e-POWER drive system. Exclusive to Nissan, the e-POWER system is a unique approach to electrification, offering the EV-drive feeling without the need to recharge.
Nissan’s e-POWER system is comprised of a high-output battery integrated with a petrol engine, power generator, inverter and 150kW front electric motor. The unique element of e-POWER is that the petrol engine is used solely to generate electricity, whilst the wheels are always completely driven by the electric motor. This means the engine can always run within its optimal range, leading to superior fuel efficiency in urban settings.
The exterior is highlighted by signature Nissan design elements such as the floating roof and V-motion grille and from the side, muscular wheel arches at the front and rear give the X-Trail presence on the road reflecting X-Trail’s adventurous character.
The new X-Trail will be available in 10 body colours with five two-tone combinations, creating 15 variations to choose from.
As with the 100% electric Nissan LEAF, Ariya and JUKE Hybrid, the new Nissan X-Trail is equipped with Nissan’s e-pedal, enabling the driver to launch, accelerate and decelerate using only the accelerator.
In addition to e-Pedal a new all-wheel drive system designed to work with Nissan’s electrified powertrains is introduced on the all-new X-Trail in Europe. e-4ORCE is an electric motor drive system which will deliver reassuring traction and confident acceleration in all conditions thanks to Nissan's most advanced all-wheel control technology
Inside, the cabin of the all-new Nissan X-Trail sets a new segment standard for elevated ambience, distinctive design and enhanced usability.
Advanced Nissan Intelligent Mobility technologies are at the driver’s fingertips, with comfort and quality in every touch. New premium materials, smart features and considered detailing enhance a cabin that delivers cutting-edge design and practicality in every dimension.
