In November 2022, the Nissan Importers Business Unit (NIBU) convened a select group of distinguished journalists from Latin America in the city of Aguascalientes, Mexico, to introduce the latest version of its iconic X-Trail SUV, which includes the e. -Power Electric powertrain system and e-4ORCE electric all-wheel drive control technology.
Now, in Bogotá, in a spectacular event that we attended with a large number of journalists from different Latin American markets, the famous Japanese brand confirmed the arrival on the territory of this fourth version of the successful X-Trail, a version that comes Full of innovation, technology and equipment.
The first country to receive the new X-Trail is Colombia, where all available units were already sold out on the first day of sale, which clearly shows the attraction and enthusiasm this new model has generated among Colombian users.
The X-Trail e-Power will reach the Uruguayan market before the end of the first quarter of this year.
Held in the Colombian capital, the event was attended by the company’s top executives headed by Nissan Mexicana and NIBU President and General Director José Roman, who was accompanied by NIBU Managing Director Rodrigo Centeno (Diana Torres) on the occasion. Senior Director of Marketing) and Luciana Herrmann (Corporate Communications Director Nissan Mexicana), among other directors.
Jose Roman expressed: “We are very excited with the launch of the Nissan X-Trail e-Power in NIBU markets, the vehicle that positions us as a leader in electrification strategy and the benchmark in technology, innovation and development in Latin America. It will help people build a better world Our long-term vision of promoting electromobility while responding to environmental, social and customer needs”, in line with the Nissan Ambition 2030 plan”.
For her part, Diana Torres commented: “At the Nissan Importers Business Unit, we have driven the development of electric vehicles and assistive technologies for an unparalleled driving experience. With the launch of the Nissan X-Trail e-Power, we will continue to transform the future of mobility in the region, Capable of bringing excitement, autonomy, safety and connectivity to commuters by bringing this exclusive technology for the first time and the freedom of not requiring special chargers, Combining Nissan e-Power technology with X-Trail heritage and features it makes The vehicle is a choice like no other on the market, not only because of the features that make the X-Trail one of the most coveted SUVs on the market, but also because of the benefits of an electric vehicle, such as limiting programs Exceptions to the movement of combustion vehicles on certain days and hours, among others”. Ended up pointing.
Undoubtedly, one of the most notable aspects of the X-Trail e-Power is that its propulsion is 100% electric, as the combustion engine has no direct interaction with either of the SUV’s two axles. Its specific function is to recharge the battery which supplies voltage to electric motors to generate torque and power.
The system is composed of 1.8Kw battery, and a state-of-the-art VCR turbo three-cylinder gasoline engine, with a displacement of 1.5 liters, which is powerful and efficient; While the electric motor, which is responsible for driving the wheels of the vehicle, has 205 hp of power and 243 lb-ft of torque.
These are some of the details of the new vehicle.
The X-Trail E-Power is equipped with the aforementioned internal combustion engine, which is responsible for recharging the high-performance lithium-ion battery. In this way, this system, with the use of E-Power, does not have to connect the vehicle to an electric power source, which allows a wide range of autonomy of more than 900 kilometers, according to Data Symmetry. , without relying on any kind of electric charging infrastructure, as is the case with other types of vehicles. Furthermore, thanks to its instantaneous torque, the system allows for instant and superb linear acceleration.
Referring to the E-4ORCE system, this new dual-motor technology takes the vehicle to extreme sophistication by incorporating electric four-wheel drive control, allowing maximum grip from each of the wheels and flexing the vehicle for more comfortable Controls movement effectively. , reliable and safe operation in any scenario.
For its part, when the accelerator pedal is released, the e-Pedal Step system uses the load’s resistance to slow the vehicle, reducing the use of the brake pedal, resulting in simple, comfortable and predictable handling Is. In addition, it maximizes range efficiency through regenerative braking.
Due to future reports regarding equipment and performance, this has been a preview of what was experienced in a presentation made in Colombia to the Latin American press.
