Note ePower is Nissan’s first range-extended electric vehicle; Nissan evaluating India launch.
A few days ago, we revealed that Nissan was studying the possibility of the market introduction of the Note e-Power hatchback. Now, a set of spy pics have surfaced confirming the car has already landed in India.
Nissan recently revealed that the company feels that this electrically driven hatchback, which is charged by a small 1,198cc petrol engine (range extender) rather than a fixed charging socket, will be better suited for the Indian buyer.
“The e-Power technology will be very convenient for the Indian customer. We have a request from our team in India to study the e-Power technology for the country,” Daniele Schillaci, executive vice president, Global Marketing and Sales, Nissan Motor Co said addressing the media at the company’s headquarters in Yokohama.
The Note e-Power is Nissan’s first range-extended vehicle. It can run on petrol like a normal petrol-powered or hybrid car, without having to charge the battery from a charging station, thus making it suitable for countries like India where the electric vehicle charging network is weak.
