Nissan Previews 2021 Qashqai And Its New e-Power Hybrid Unit

Nissan Qashqai 2021 Nissan Qashqai to Jump on CMF-C Platform With e-Power Next Spring

The Qashqai uses the Renault-Nissan Alliance's new CMF-C platform, with the doors, front bumpers and bonnet all made from aluminium.

The new SUV is now being tested on European roads and will be built in Sunderland, just like the two previous Qashqais.

Nissan has officially released the first details of the upcoming 2021 Qashqai together with a set of images showing the new crossover under a camouflage wrap.

There are no plans for diesel, with a 1.3-litre 12V mild-hybrid petrol option for those choosing to stick to conventional combustion, but we suspect there will be more interest in the e-Power version.

While technical details are still thin on the ground, the latter offers full electric motor drive; i.e., the wheels are completely driven by the electric motor.

Not wanting to squander the Qashqai's sales success since its debut in 2007, Nissan has promised significant progress for its third-gen with a heavily revised platform, a new powertrain line-up and advanced active safety systems. Front-driven models (with wheels measuring up to 19 inches) will feature a torsion-beam arrangement at the rear, while variants with all-wheel drive (or 20-inch wheels) will be equipped with a multi-link set-up.

Nissan says that using this setup can mean that the engine is optimised for efficiency, reducing emissions - while still providing the range for high mileage drivers.

Unlike many hybrids, however, the petrol engine will be only used to charge the batteries with the electric motor powering the front wheels.

Keeping on the efficiency theme, the new Qashqai will feature a flat underbody that works with an active flap in the radiator grille to smooth airflow around the vehicle.

The new Qashqai arrives in spring 2021.

This is dubbed ProPilot with Navi-Link and created to bring greater semi-autonomous features, including adapting the car's speed under the intelligent cruise control to allow for a lower speed limit zone and even to take into account new speed limit data from road signs.
