Nissan has cleared its ambition to launch the Note hybrid in India and now it seems, the brand is mulling the plan of localized production of the car. If things go on right track, we can expect the Nissan Note e-Power to be launched here by 2020. However, there is no confirmation yet from the Japanese brand and the whole thing is in planning stage only.

However, there are some hindrances ahead of the brand. Availability of the technology in India for the local manufacturing or assembling of Nissan Note e-Power is less than the desired level. Also, being a hybrid car, it won’t be able to get the subsidy from the Indian government, as the subsidy is available only for the pure electric vehicles.

However, Nissan is planning to get the vehicle classified as an EV here, as there is a powerful electric motor onboard the vehicle. If the automaker becomes able to get the vehicle classified as an EV, it will enjoy the tax benefit and therefore pricing of the car would be competitive. Considering the fact that India is thriving towards greener mobility, Nissan Note e-Power could be an interesting model here.

The Nissan Note e-Power comes powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that is used for charging the batteries. This petrol motor churns out 106 bhp of peak power. The electric battery combined with the petrol engine works in order to deliver a long range by maximizing the efficiency. It offers 37 kmpl of mileage.
