Although it has been just 15 years since Nissan came to India, their success story has long been told in the country – with many people going as far as to import the Japanese brand of vehicles. The company has always been associated with class, elegance, style, and performance which is why they have done exceedingly well in India, as well as around the world. Nissan knows how to sell cars that appeal to the public and the buyers know exactly what to expect from every new launch. Now, let’s take a look at the upcoming Nissan cars that have got buyers giddy with excitement.
|Nissan Leaf||30.0 Lakh|
|Nissan X-Trail||22.6 Lakh|
|Nissan Terra||20.0 Lakh|
|Nissan Note e Power||20.0 Lakh|
|Expected Launch||October 13, 2019|
|Power||40kWh Lithium-Ion Battery|
Following Nissan’s EV design structure, the new Nissan Leaf offers intelligent driving, intelligent integration, and intelligent power along with a plethora of features. This all-electric car has some of the most technologically advanced features that make it stand out in all the right ways. With ProPilot mode, the car can follow a vehicle autonomously between the speeds of 30 kmph and 100 kmph in a single lane. The ProPilot Park mode uses the 4 high resolution cameras and 12 ultrasonic sensors around the car to automatically find and park in a spot. Powering the Leaf will be an electric motor with 320Nm of torque and 150Ps of power which will be backed up by a 40kWh Lithium-Ion battery pack. The car is estimated to have a range of about 400kms on a single charge which is quite impressive. Finally, when it comes to safety, the Nissan Leaf carries a number of features as well, including, Traffic Sign Recognition, Intelligent Lane Intervention, Blind Spot Warning, Intelligent Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. With a launch date soon approaching, a used car evaluation tool could help you get your hands on this remarkable vehicle.
|Expected Launch||December 12, 2019|
|Engine||2.0L Naturally Aspirated Engine with an Electric Motor|
Known as the Nissan Rogue in the US, the X-Trail is expected to be launched in India in December, 2019. This is the third-gen SUV model which was first showcased back in 2016 at the Indian Auto Expo. While there seem to be a number of upgrades and changes, the majority of it looks to be in its exteriors. The bumper, headlamps, grille, and hood get a complete redesign while a large air duct sits below the grille and between the two fog lights. In the rear, the car has new horizontally placed tail lights and a new bumper as well. The X-Trail, when launched in India, will come with a 2.0L naturally aspirated engine along with an electric motor that features an automatic CVT or Continuously Variable Transmission. The interiors of the car also get a major upgrade with a touchscreen infotainment system, new AC vents, and a sleek digital dashboard. Although the X-Trail was launched with Nissan’s ProPilot autonomous driving feature, it is unlikely that the Indian model will come with it when launched.
|Expected Launch||January 1, 2021|
The Nissan Terra is definitely one of the most anticipated SUVs right now, but not for the conventional reasons. According to the ASEAN NCAP test results, the Terra set an unmatched 5-star rating across all types of tests which makes it one of the safest cars around. Along with its safety certification, the car will feature a total of 6 airbags. Launched as a direct competitor to a number of cars, the 7-seater SUV is set to take on the Mahindra Alturas G4, Isuzu mu-X, Toyota Fortuner, and Ford Endeavour. Under the hood, the tested Terra housed a 2.3L diesel engine which could make it into the launched variant in the coming months. In terms of looks, the Nissan Terra sports a rugged exterior with large bumpers on the front and rear. The grille on the front also has a newer design with sleek headlamps on either side of it.
|Expected Launch||March 13, 2020|
|Engine||Petrol, Electric Motor|
|Power||1.5kWh Lithium-Ion Battery|
Nissan’s electric vehicle (EV) design platform is one of the best in the world and the upcoming Nissan Note e Power uses that design to offer something more than just cleaner driving. When it comes to EV’s, power and range are two variables all potential buyers look for and are the two obstacles most manufacturers find hard to overcome. Nissan’s attempt at solving that dilemma is the Note e Power as it features both an electric motor as well as a petrol engine. This would make it a hybrid essentially, but the petrol engine is not there to get the wheels turning. In fact, all the power comes from the 1.5kWh Lithium-Ion battery which offers a torque of 254Nm. The petrol engine in the car works as a battery charger to keep the car moving even when the battery is running out of juice. With its sole purpose set on charging, the engine is expected to have an impressive mileage of 37kmpl. Since very little is known about the Note e Power, we will have to wait till its launch date to know the other details. Nissan is one of the biggest automobile manufacturers to touch down on Indian soil and these four upcoming vehicles could launch them even further up the table to take on the competition. With so much potential on offer, customers could soon be preparing their RC transfer papers for their pre-owned cars and take a step into the future with any one of these cars.
