Nissan, one of the popular Japanese automakers doing business in India, has been taking quite a few initiatives to promote the brand in the country and also work towards the welfare of the industry. The company is presently working on all the possibilities of bringing the Note e-Power, an electric car, to India.

Keeping in mind the present situation of the auto industry and India’s inadequate infrastructure in terms of hosting electric cars, Nissan feels that the Note e-Power would be the perfect hybrid car.

Apart from an electric motor, the Nissan Note e-Power hatchback is even powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine. At times, when the car does not have charge, it can run on the petrol mill, making it more convenient as there aren’t many electric charge stations in the country.

This step was discussed by the Executive Vice President of Global Marketing and Sales at Nissan, Mr. Daniele Schillaci, as he said that the company’s Indian team has requested to study the Note e-Power for the Indian market.

The Nissan Note e-Power was launched in 2016 and was the company’s first electric-extended range. The Note was the second largest selling vehicle in Japan in the first half of 2017. It was even the best selling hatchback in January this year. Out of all Note sold, the e-Power recorded 70 percent of them. With this success, the company is now keen on introducing this car to other countries as well.

Nissan is also gearing up to introduce the new Leaf EV in India. The Leaf will be powered by a 40kWh battery and will be capable of producing a maximum of 140 bhp of power, which is 40 bhp more than the previous generation model. Under the Japanese driving cycle, the Leaf is claimed to have a range of 400 km.
