A technology unique to Nissan. e-POWER uses a petrol engine to charge a battery and that alone drives an electric motor, powering the wheels. It responds similarly to an electric car, providing instant torque and also has lower tailpipe emissions and running costs compared to a traditional combustion engine , but without the need to plug it in. In addition to the petrol engine, e-POWER also uses regenerative braking to help keep the battery topped up.
Discover a new driving experience without changing your habits. Keep using fuel but enjoy the driving sensations of electric mobility as soon as you press the accelerator.
You don’t need to plug-in an e-POWER vehicle. The petrol engine produces energy that charges the battery when the vehicle needs it. The petrol engine produces energy that can either be directly supplied to the electric motor or to recharge the battery. The electric motor alone drives the vehicles wheels giving an electric feeling drive at all times.
The friction caused by braking produces energy, and e-POWER doesn't let all the energy usually lost through breaking, go to waste. The regenerative braking system on e-POWER converts kinetic energy from deceleration into electrical energy, and feeds it back to the battery, improving the fuel-efficiency .

Instant acceleration helps you seize pockets of space in slow urban-traffic, and with the quiet electrified engine, you'll feel calm and in control even on the most challenging driving scenes.
With the wheels powered by an electric motor, you'll get the same instant torque and smooth acceleration that electric vehicle owners love. e-Pedal step is ready for you when you’re in the mood for a more enjoyable and responsive drive.
The electric motor runs quietly, and combined with the petrol engine, produces reduced tailpipe emissions than a traditional combustion engine , so driving e-POWER is a serene and pleasant experience.
e-POWER skips the initial hurdles some have with electric vehicles. Because the battery is kept full by the petrol engine, you can begin long journeys free from range anxiety. Simply refill at an everyday pump and you'll be back on the road.
With an e-POWER vehicle, you can go much further on a full-tank because the petrol engine is only used to charge the more efficient electric battery. The battery is also partly recharged with energy produced while braking, meaning far fewer trips to the pump, and far more savings for the long-term .
With the flick of a switch, you can activate e-Pedal Step: a single pedal for accelerating and braking. e-Pedal Step removes the need to jump between two pedals in stop-start traffic, or when driving uphill. Pair this with the quiet engine and you'll feel relaxed behind the wheel.
