Funky new Nissan Qashqai – we love it.

Look at this, the new Nissan Qashqai with electrified powertrains.  Nissan plans for this funky new design to accelerate future sales of what they say is Europe’s best-selling crossover. It will come as a 1.3 DiG-T petrol-equipped with ‘mild hybrid’ technology, and it represents the European debut of Nissan’s innovative e-POWER powertrain that borrows technologies from the Nissan LEAF EV.

This new Qashqai will be available in 2WD and 4WD variants, 6-speed manual or new Xtronic CVT transmissions, and pure-electric motor driving courtesy of e-POWER.

Remember, Nissan’s goal is to achieve 50% electrified sales in Europe by FY23.
